Ah Gamescom has arrived, which means tons of games will be shown off over the next week. Event Horizon (Tower of Time dev) are getting in on the action, to show off footage from their brand new RPG called Dark Envoy.

For those who missed the previous article, it is already confirmed to be coming to Linux. To save you a click, when asked they said "We spent a considerable effort to make Tower of Time run well on Linux - so now, being more experienced with it, we also plan to release on Linux at the same time as PC launch.".

Check out the brand new footage for Dark Envoy:

Feature Highlight:

  • Non-linear RPG with turn-based combat accompanied by a real-time pre-combat phase where tactics and party power are equally important.
  • Player choices impact the world: it can be destroyed or saved, and the stories that unfold will lead to multiple endings reflecting the characters’ personalities and decisions. 
  • Co-written by Michael Chatfield, an Amazon Top 100 Science Fiction / Fantasy writer.
  • 15 unique character classes to discover - with the ability to mix skill trees - including some rare classes which can only be found in remote locations or through chained quests.
  • Combat animations recorded using the studio’s own mocap and a kung-fu master acting out various fighting styles. 
  • Can be played solo, two player co-op, as well as a new mode called Player vs World where Player 2 acts as the final boss seeking to destroy Player 1 before they become too powerful. 
  • High-replayability factor due to large pool of quests and world events. One cannot uncover all of the content in a single playthrough. 

You can wishlist/follow it on Steam. Just make sure you've set your platform preferences correctly, to show as a Linux wishlist.

Not tried their first game Tower of Time yet? It's worth a look! Find it on Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

The abbreviation of "PC" for "Personal Computer" is not trademarked by anyone. Is saying or typing "Windows" really that much more of a strain than "PC"?

To me, it's like saying, "The film is releasing on BlueRay at the same time as high-density optical disc media."

I hate to be that guy, as I usually don't say much, but I didn't sleep much and the coffee isn't working.

The game looks very promising. I welcome the effort the devs put towards Linux. It's encouraging!

The environment sure looks gorgeous, but I felt some lack of diversity. The same fireball spell was showcased multiple times, as were the same enemies. Sure, the release date is said to be 'late 2020' but is one year all this game needs to be done? From the 15 supposed classes they showed us only 5.

Looks to have a nice mix of tactics, turn based combat with real-time dungeon crawling. Aesthetically it looks amazing.

I’m disappointed that they decided to make a turn-based game after Tower of Time which was real time, but it’s great to see their commitment to Linux support!

Tower of Time worked perfectly on Linux and had a great story so I'm really looking forward to this. The new mode sounds interesting as well:
