Zadbox Entertainment who created the Myst-like Quern - Undying Thoughts are working on another interesting first-person puzzler with Dimhaven Enigmas. It's confirmed to once again have Native Linux support.

In Dimhaven Enigmas the player takes on the role of Emily Ravenstone on a mission to find her uncle on Dimhaven: an isolated island in an alternate reality in the 1980s. The once lively tourist paradise is now left almost completely abandoned and isolated by the mysterious events of the last few years. Air traffic is almost non-existent, and most of the residents left just before the closure of the airport. Cargo transportation ceased long ago, and barely any news reaches the island - and none leaves it. Or at least so it seems.

To tackle annoying pixel hunting and to be a little more inviting for casual adventurers, the game also features interaction indicators and a progressive hint system. This system offers gradually more revealing hints based on the items in your inventory, puzzle progress, found clues and most importantly: a safe way to nose around inside the game without breaking immersion.

The game's soundtrack is composed by Marcell Kerepesi, who scored the whole of Quern’s beautiful OST. Dimhaven’s music and atmosphere is powered by a dynamic system that will always adapt to the player’s progress.

You can check out the demo on Steam and support it on Kickstarter.

It's been near the top of my wishlist since your Steam Next Fest article last month. I hope they smash that Kickstarter goal.

I've backed this project on Kickstarter. This game uses the Unity engine but defaults to the OpenGL renderer on Linux, you may have to force the Vulkan renderer to get rid of visual glitches/artifacts: in your Steam library right click on the game in the list -> Properties -> General -> Launch Options: -force-vulkan

I played the demo during the last Next Fest, and I don't think they had the hint system implemented there. I really could have used it for at least one of the puzzles. It's generally not bad, although the pixel style can be a problem when you're really close up to some objects. The Vulkan issue BloodScourge mentions might address that though.

I loved Quern so really curious about this one.

Instabuy for the native Linux support alone. But Quern was really good, so I'm looking forward to this one.

There's actually hint system. Look question mark when you open the inventory. It doesn't give solution right away, first one is usually quite vague. The last one doesn't always give exact solution either, so I had to consult other sources too.
