2D isometric adventure, BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION, has been announced for release this month and the good news is THE BROTHERHOOD will be bringing it to Linux.

They previously made the point-and-click sci-fi horror adventure 'STASIS' and another isometric horror game with 'CAYNE', both games have Linux builds too (although STASIS is classed as a Beta). As for BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION, it's releasing for Windows on February 26 and they confirmed to us on Twitter that they "will be supporting other platforms with a solid and stable build" and although there's no set date to "rest assured - it’s on our roadmap".

A little more about it:

BEAUTIFUL DESOLATION is a 2D isometric adventure game set in the distant future. Explore a post-apocalyptic landscape, solve puzzles, meet new friends and make powerful enemies, mediate conflicts and fight for your life as you unravel the secrets of the world around you.

It was actually funded on Kickstarter (see more on our dedicated page), and even back then they said they would "endeavor to also publish on Mac and Linux, however this may not be a day one release" so they've always been quite open about that.

With all that in mind, check out the trailer:

Quoting: PatolaIt is not an RPG then?

Stasis and Cayne were pretty much point and click adventures. Looks like this one might extend the mechanics a bit, but I'd expect most gameplay to resemble that. And Cayne is free, so easy to try and see what they're good at.

I loved the atmosphere and experience from Stasis and Cayne, so I'll definitely have a go at this one when it releases for Linux.

I’m so confused by the mix of gameplay styles and graphics, the visual quality of the 3D cutscenes vs the retro look of the interface, the old-school Fallout meets Final Fantasy (?) combat interface versus the Icewind Dale-esque exploration and dialogues, and the fact that it’s being advertized as a point-and-click and puzzle game on top of all that. Some parts look like they might have been made by an indie studio, but the trailer conveys a sense of the game being massive, deep and having high production values, and they have a big name like Mick Gordon on soundtrack duty. I’m utterly confused, but intrigued.

The language they use in that trailor sounds awefully similar to Zulu.

Yayy both played and enjoyed STATIS and CAYNE. Finished them both. Devs are good at art and atmosphere. İ believe Beautiful desolation will be AAA for me.
