Announced today, One Step From Eden from developer Thomas Moon Kang is going to be releasing on March 26 and they've managed to pull in Humble Bundle as their publisher.
It's going to join a long list of crowdfunded games available on Linux and I'm personally excited about this. Blending multiple genres together with inspiration coming from Mega Man Battle Network, One Step from Eden is a roguelike deck-builder fused with a super-fast action game as you and enemies throw abilities across the screen. Check out their brand new trailer:
- 9+ Playable characters and Bosses
- 40+ Unique evolving enemies
- Deckbuilding with 200+ spells
- 100+ strategy changing items
- Procedurally generated worlds and battles
- Life or death choices and alternate endings
- Local co-op and PvP
- Steam Workshop & mod support
Can't wait that long? You can also still try the older demo on Game Jolt and it's really good. I've sunk more hours into it than I would like to admit right now, it has such a fantastic feel with easy to pick up controls but the combat does become quite challenging. You need some fancy quick finger-work, coupled with smart use of your skills.
It's nice to see Humble Bundle get back into publishing and helping more indie games succeed too, since Humble do some good work getting money to charity and they take 5% less from developers than Steam on their own store.
