Devolver Digital announces save-the-day adventure McPixel 3

By - | Views: 10,016

McPixel 3 is coming from Sos Sosowski and Devolver Digital - but what happened to number 2? Guess that one got lost adventuring. Even their official announcement email was confused, telling us to join them in asking "What the hell happened to McPixel 2?".

The original released back in 2012 and this follow-up is described as: "Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It's falling too fast to be either of those. It's McPixel! A wanna-be hero who keeps getting mixed up in the most unbelievable situations you can imagine. Avert one disaster after another at every turn using unconventional yet entertaining methods of mayhem including - but not limited to - summoning a spider-billionaire, having a BBQ in his pants, punching a T-Rex into outer space, peeing into sports cars, and kicking Fork Parker in the balls."

lol that trailer is bizarre enough to be funny

I see Linux is listed as supported for the first game on itch.io: https://sos.itch.io/mcpixel

And it's on sale there now.

UPDATE: From the listing, it looks like it's using Adobe Air, which might a problem and reason Steam doesn't list it.

Yup, it's also there on Humble. It was simply never uploaded to Steam, as the game was released before Steam supported GNU/Linux.

Good catch, noted.

By a total coincidence, I wanted to play McPixel yesterday on Android, but it didn't launch, citing incompatible system version. I got it from humble bundle way back but the Linux version never worked for me for whatever reason. I guess I'll try the steam version, seeing as it has a platinum rating on protondb.

Well of course! My moms running a standard Debian bullseye, so unless the port was botched I would expect it to work.
