Trailblazers, the rather unique co-op racer that has you paint the track is now officially available with same-day Linux support.
Disclosure: Key provided by the publisher.
They have a new launch trailer as well, check it out:
One thing I did notice, was that the initial resolution seems off and rather blurry. Re-doing it to the correct resolution in the options seems to solve it, but it reverts each time you load it requiring you to do it every time. A nuisance, but not a huge problem since it's solvable.
On top of that, I was unable to turn on cross-platform multiplayer from the game menu, as it always seems to revert to disabled. When I went to do an online race, it then asked me if I wanted to enable it and then it suddenly stayed on.
A more pressing issue, is that the painting mechanic seems a little, well—broken. I'm not sure if this is specific to the Linux build or not, but I've had it confirmed thanks to GOL fan "Doktor Mandrake" who did some testing with me. You're supposed to hold A to paint, but it appears the vehicles do it automatically without needing to press any button, so you don't use up any energy doing so. Pressing A as it tells you to, changes nothing but the camera angle and reduce your "trail energy" bar. Essentially, all vehicles seem to be cheating right now.
I've reported all issues to the publisher.
I will have more in-depth thoughts up at a later date, as the publisher only sent us a key today. From the races we did, it certainly feels like Wipeout mixed up with Splatoon and it feels pretty awesome. It seems like a game I would love, but I class it as unplayable due to the painting bug. If they solve the issues mentioned above, it would be a solid recommendation.
