Posted by , | Views: 7,399

The amazing looking cyberpunk horror game 'Observer' [Steam, Official Site] has sadly seen a delay for Linux, but it may arrive in October.

Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader, the publisher Aspyr Media commented on reddit with this:

observer_ is ABSOLUTELY coming to Linux! We had a date we needed to hit, and unfortunately couldnt get linux done within that timeframe. We are working hard towards a late Oct date, but definitely this year.

It's a shame the Linux version didn't make the original cut, but it's pleasing to know Aspyr Media are still pushing forward with Linux versions of games they publish.

Observer does look incredible and it has been reviewed very well on Steam and plenty of other sites have given it their blessing too.

About the game:

What would you do if your fears were hacked? >observer_ is a cyberpunk horror game from Bloober Team, the creators of Layers of Fear. Discover a dark cyberpunk world beset by plagues, war and squalor. Play as the new front line of neural police as you hack into the jagged minds of the insane.

Definitely going to buy this when it comes out!

Watched Cry play a couple of hours of this. Looks really really nice, as a Blade Runner-esque cyberpunk game, as a horror title. The narrative bits are compelling. And the graphics are great. Aside from perhaps a bit too passive gameplay for some people's tastes this might be a new classic. So really glad this is coming to Linux.

Could see… and could not see…
No Tux == No Bucks. Any speculation is pointless; we saw countless times that bait and switch tactic.
Besides, not a day-1 release => not a full price purchise.

That's my opinion, anyway.
