One Lonely Outpost to get Linux support around the full release

By - | Views: 13,946

After a bit of a development hiccup changing developers after the crowdfunding campaign, One Lonely Outpost has hit Early Access with Linux support planned later. Originally being developed by Aurorian Studios, they announced their publisher Freedom Games was taking over development back in September 2022.

More about it: "You're the first pioneer to hit the surface of a barren, alien world - a desolate expanse as far as the eye can see. Your job is simple: Take your Space-RV, power up your multipurpose tech gauntlet, and use whatever seeds found in the cargo to start a new life on this world. Over time, you'll make the planet life-sustaining for yourself and dozens of future colonists. But until then, it's going to be one lonely outpost..."

It arrived in Early Access on June 26th, you can see the trailer below:

Linux support was a goal during the Kickstarter campaign, and it appears they will be sticking with it. However it's not likely until the full 1.0 release as their FAQ mentions:

Early Access will only be available for PC, but we plan to bring the game to all major consoles (Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation) with or shortly after the 1.0 release along with Mac and Linux.

Feature Highlight:

  • Plan your colonist’s farming adventures. Will you explore? Plant? Craft? FIsh? Build a close-knit community? Or all of them at once?
  • Fill out the Omninac by experiencing life on the new planet. Categorize crops, minerals, seasons, animals, and more!
  • Terraform the desert with a trusty robotic pet. Fertilize the ground, secure water sources, and make the air breathable.
  • Farm, mine, explore, and carve out a habitat for humanity.
  • Build your colony from the ground up. Your loneliness will be over once you can attract some colonists - but that is just the beginning!
  • Discover a robust menu of meals to cook - you can't explore a new world on an empty stomach!
  • A plethora of fish and bugs also inhabit the planet - go uncover them to fill out your collection!
  • Usher in a new dawn for humanity, building a genuine off-world utopia for your colonists.
  • Connect with your newfound community, cultivate relationships, and who knows, maybe even find love among the pioneers?
  • And just as important as the future, delve into the past of the old world. Just what lies hidden beneath this ancient planet's surface...?

You can buy it on Humble Store, Steam and GOG

In a moment of dyslexia while skimming this list, I read these two bullet points together and got "Discover a robust menu of bugs to cook…"

Sounds cool. I couldn't get the demo to work on Proton, but if there's a Linux version coming out I'm content to wait.

The advantage is that we can wait until there is a better product. Going by the reviews (both positive and negative) the game does seem to need quite a bit more time in the oven.

I was making a sort of more broad joke, that Linux always seems to get support from one lonely outpost but not the main settlement, as it were.
