Developer Obscure Tales emailed recently about their intriguing pixel-art survival horror "Lamentum", they're planning full Linux support and it's currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter.

The developer has clearly listed Linux as a platform both on the Kickstarter and Steam page, after I pointed out neither actually said anything about platforms so that's nice to see.

Set in New England during the mid-nineteenth century, the game takes place in a dark mansion full of dangers. The developer said that every action you take, can alter the course of the story which sounds interesting.

What they say it will feature:

  • Detailed pixel art combined with actual light and shadow technology.
  • An adventure with different endings depending on the decisions we make.
  • Large number of characters with different motivations.
  • Multiple enemies and terrifying bosses.
  • Fight or hide. Choose the best way to survive.
  • A labyrinthine mansion to explore along with unique outdoor areas.
  • Large amount of weapons and objects.
  • A nightmare plot, dark and twisted, aimed at an adult audience.
  • Variable climatology.

The campaign on Kickstarter runs until July 26th, with a goal of €15,000 they already have over €3,000 pledged. Going by the current trend, it looks like they might just hit it.

After Shenmue 3 I have decided to not back more Kickstarter projects -at least for the time being- but I wish them luck. If they eventually release it for Linux I'll be happy to give it a go as it looks quite good.

Wow, I absolutely love it!
I hope that they put the main emphasis on the creepy storytelling instead of action though. And well, one can still hope for 21:9 support.

Guess I will instant pledge. Only about three weeks left...
