After promising Linux support for Supraland with the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for a sequel, Supra Games have now delivered!
Supraland is a First-Person Metroidvania Puzzle game. The main sources of inspiration are Zelda, Metroid and Portal. Supraland assumes that you are intelligent and lets you play independently. The story is minimal, gives you an overarching goal to pursue, and then sets you free. Despite child friendly visuals, the game targets experienced players. Playtime: ~12-25h
It's popular too, with an "Overwhelmingly Positive" rating on Steam from nearly two thousand ratings so the developer has certainly got a good idea here. It looks really sweet too, check out the trailer:
It even has a demo available on Steam, which I gave a run. After crashing first during the intro scene, a second attempt seemed to be fine. Performance isn't great though, I did have to turn down a number of settings quite a bit to get it smooth but it's playable.
Seems like a really sweet game though, apart from the performance the demo gameplay was actually quite impressive so I'm not really surprised so many love it. Great colourful style to it too, with everything being set in a literal sandbox in a child's garden. Quite a lot of secrets to find too, even in the demo. You can pick up a copy on Humble Store and Steam.
You can also find the Kickstarter campaign for the sequel here which will also have Linux support. Currently the funding campaign has managed to get over 50% funding with 28 days left to go.
