I don't have any contacts with the developer and previous messages went unanswered, so sadly it's not one I will personally be covering in any detail.

It looks like we have another success story thanks to Kickstarter, where the developers raised a tidy sum of $626,250!

Features
  • From Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, creators of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion.
  • A neo-noir mystery set in 1987.
  • 5 playable characters who can work together… or get on each other’s nerves.
  • Not a walking simulator!
  • Satisfying puzzles intertwined with a twisty-turny story that will stay with you.
  • A vast, bizarre world to explore at your own pace.
  • A joke every 2 minutes... guaranteed!*
  • Casual and Hard modes with varied difficulty.
  • English voices with English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish subtitles.

*Not a guarantee.

Fantastic to see what looks like a very high quality point & click adventure get day-1 Linux support for sure. Hope you all enjoy it, looks good! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Glad to see a successful Linux release after all the "Sorry, but we decided last night that we don't want to do Linux after all, despite we promised." news we had lately.

Just bought it, will try to alternate it with Zelda breaks. A shame we have good weather in London now and can't pull that excuse off to stay home xD

Though it's not on the high-tech side, I waited for a first port report.
So it's all working fine for you?
I'm so excited...!
