Developer melessthanthree has announced that Death of a Wish, their scribbly-art styled vicious hack-and-slash action-RPG, will be releasing a Linux version on May 9th.

More: "Death of a Wish is a vicious action-RPG where style is salvation.

Play as Christian as he unites with new comrades to challenge the cult that raised him. By taking down the four Sanctum Faiths: Father, Sister, Cardinal, and Priest, they will upend the order of the world.

Fight your way through a nightmare filled with horrifying monsters and terrifying people. Master brutal attacks and flashy combos as you struggle against the Corruption consuming you with style and grace. Shine your light in this surreal sea of darkness."

The Linux (and macOS) versions will be coming along with the Randomizer Update that adds in a new randomized game mode, great for those who complete it and want something more. This mode randomizes the enemy and item placements, and also gives you randomized starting equipment.

Game Features:

  • ENGAGE IN VICIOUSLY GRACEFUL COMBAT Unleash Christian’s cursed powers in a demanding and rewarding combat system. Be careful not to succumb to the ever-encroaching Corruption; achieve high ranks in combat and perform graceful combos to hold the Corruption at bay.
  • CUSTOMIZE YOUR MARKED POWERS Rend your foes asunder with magical combos called Arias. Enhance your abilities with powerful Virtues that alter your approach to battle and the rhythm of combat. With a limitless array of ways to fight stylishly, build your character with passion to destroy your foes.
  • DESCEND INTO THE NIGHTMARE In the dreamworld of Paradiso, repressed memories and unspeakable feelings come to life as the nightmarish city of Neo-Sanctum. Delve into the secret underworld of the esoteric and abandoned to meet new comrades who will aid you on your journey.
  • SURREAL AND SPECTACULAR Christian’s world is rendered with a surreal aesthetic like no other. Harsh, pulsating scratches upon a sea of darkness render a thick atmosphere brooding with emotion. Battles come to life in an animated spectacle of light and motion that remains easy to parse in play.
  • For audio, Nicolo Telesca’s chilling score mixes electronic sounds with live instrumentation and complements the visuals by eliciting feelings of tense anxiety and electrifying catharsis.

You can follow it on the Steam page.

It has a Very Positive user rating on Steam and has been reviewed well by critics. So I'm looking forward to seeing official support like this.

If I didn't totally suck at this kind of game I'd be buying it in a second because it's just so damn stylish.
