By - | Views: 14,226

Up for more pointing and clicking while adventuring? You've come to the right spooky place, with Foolish Mortals being announced with Native Linux support.

Foolish Mortals is a classic-style point & click adventure game inspired by games like Monkey Island and Broken Sword. You’ll take the role of young treasure hunter Murphy McCallan as he explores the mysterious island of Devil's Rock in search of the lost treasure of Bellemore Manor, where decades ago an entire wedding suddenly and mysteriously vanished.

It's currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, where the goal was met in less than 24 hours and now it's going through some extra-stretch goals to improve the game further.

I did not find anything beyond "Our engine DOES port to Linux, so it's definitely something we want to do!"...?

FAQ on the Kickstarter shows it's expected across all platform. As always, it's just a plan and anything can change.
