Ama's Lullaby is currently on Kickstarter with the interesting premise of being a point & click adventure with hacking.

They say they have been inspired by Westwoods Studios' Blade Runner (1997) and it features a command-line hacking system. An asteroid is on a collision course with earth, so you embark on a mission led by an AI to the first human colony on another planet. Sounds good to me!

They have 17 more days to hit their funding goal, which includes Linux without any silly stretch goals. They currently have €7,134 pledged against a €20,000 goal so they have some ways to go.

You can see an early video below of the Prologue:

About the game
Ama's Lullaby is a point-and-click video game taking place in a cyberpunk environment. Playing the role of Ama, a high potential teenager who loves computer sciences, you will explore the colony, meet its human and non-human inhabitants, negociate with the AI and make decisions that will impact directly the course of events. Thanks to Ama’s programming talent, you will be able to hack any network of the city, gather information, steal confidential data to use them for your own purposes, disclose them or even blackmail people. But be careful: every action will have consequences on the story, and Ama will become an easy prey once her identity is unveiled. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I backed this game hoping they will make it, sounds different/interesting enough to me and quite like the art. As in every game backed, or even bought after it's completion, there can be disappointments and let downs but that's just a "risk" as a consumer imo. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like they will make it to the goal.

Interesting fact: Blade runner took place in 2019 which is the same year that this game is expected to ship.

This looks very nice, glad to see that the brief 2.5D era of point and click games is getting some love.

@liamdawe, maybe there should be some pre-prepared questions to send to Kickstarter projects to see if we'd actually get the game or not. One of those would be "what middleware are you using?". Might be a good way to weed out the serious people from the ones who over-promise things during their campaigns to try and reach the goal.

Yeah, the feeling reminded me Cyberia games.

Looks like an interesting game, but I'm not pledging to any more games on the promise that it will be released on Linux. When it releases for Linux I will consider buying it.

Thank you for taking this "risk" :) In my opinion, indie gaming will always include some risks. That's why indie devs can surprise!

Using Unity, I think there is no risk for the Linux release. The editor is made to build releases for Linux, Mac, Windows...

There are plenty of unity games that don't have Linux support.

Right, I imagine that you still need to make some testing to see if everything works with the Linux release (maybe some devs don't want to bore with that). But for this game, it would be a shame with all the hacking/command-line stuff to have no release on Linux!
