Kraken Academy!! sounds like a wonderfully weird game where you attending the most unusual high-school that's full of ghosts, cultists, crocodiles and a magical Kraken. Described in their email as "groundhog-day adventure inspired by 90s comedy anime" and that pretty much sold me right away.

In the game you need to find a traitor who is trying to apparently destroy everything and they could be anyone at your school. Thankfully some friendly magical Kraken decides to bestow upon you the ability to time travel so you loop over and over, each time getting that little bit closer to find out who this traitor is. Sounds wild.

We spoke with the developer today who confirmed Linux support at launch on September 10.

Game Features:

Explore & Investigate

While saving the world is definitely an important goal there's a whole range of other activities to dive into. Learn teachers’ and students’ routines as you explore every corner of the campus during this three day loop. Attend a costume party, become a detective, and help the school's janitor bring down a crime syndicate.

Join a Club

Kraken Academy is split into four clubs: Music, Art, Sports and Drama:
Join the alternative Music Club and complete the school’s edgiest rock band.
Flex your creative flair in the Art Club and show off your work at an exhibition.
Compete in challenges to become the ultimate warrior in the Sports Club.
The Drama Club may be full of snobs, but if you can't beat 'em, join em! Who knows, you may even become a star in their next extravagant play.

Lucky for you, you can join them all! With the help of your magical amulet, become a member of a different club during each time loop.

Meet & Mingle

Kraken Academy is a melting pot of wacky personalities. In the Music Club alone you will meet pretty boy and lead vocalist, Vladimir, who struggles with keeping his hysterical fangirls at bay; ill-tempered bassist, Simona, always seen in her giraffe hoodie, who hates everyone (including you); and Broccoli Girl, the drummer, who just can’t get over her ex.

You'll be able to buy it on Humble Store, GOG and Steam.
