The point and click adventure genre is not only alive and well, it's positively thriving. Rosewater is another one that looks fantastic and the demo got a big refresh. Coming with full Native Linux support from Grundislav Games, it joins a list of exciting upcoming or recently released adventure games like Return to Monkey Island, Foolish Mortals, Zid Journey and Lucy Dreaming.
Francisco González of Grundislav noted on Twitter the demo update that included hand-painted backgrounds and rotoscoped animations, along with voice-acting from a great sounding cast was now in the Linux (and macOS) demos. So time to give it a look if you haven't yet?
