Hellpoint [Official Site] is a good looking dark sci fi action RPG that's currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, they have a Linux demo ready and they've now put this demo on Steam for easy access.

They keep updating the demo too, so this is a new way to keep it up to date. The latest demo adds in a new big boss fight, to show off the action a bit more.

To me, this is another case of a developer really caring about Linux support. They reached out to the community originally to gather testers which went well. So they decided to do the Linux build! They also included a quote from me on their Kickstarter, which I thought was nice.

You can find the demo on Steam here and their Kickstarter here.

They have 6 days left of funding, with quite a bit left to go, so hopefully they will find enough people willing to support them.

If you try out the demo, let me know what you think of it in the comments! Article taken from

I was getting 40-50 fps but it was stuttering/hitching bad. Felt like I was getting 10-20 fps. I would advise anyone with good or bad fps to let them know on the steam forums, they're trying to see what optimization needs to be done.

I backed the kickstarter, really like their attitude.

I found the controls and the pace quite bad, i quite after about 20 minutes, but still it's nice to see some Linux love.

OK, no chance for me to get the demo, but the tailer looks very interesting, plus, the official site features the GOG Logo. I'll keep an eye on this!

Nice to see a game that uses multi cores for a change, 100 + fps @ 1440p . Does seem slow paced but not a big player of these types of games.

Nice to see decent launch options too like Monitor selection, input ect .

Quite liked it tbh. Will keep an eye on this

I found that it worked well on my machine (i7 4790 with GTX 1060) and I really enjoyed the gameplay. Steam Controller worked well on it too. I supported it at the $59 level and hope they get it done.

It is disappointing that there's 4K support on Windows but only 1080p support on Linux. I'm Kickstarting it for the Linux support but unless this changes I'll end up (*shock*) playing it on Windows.

I appreciate the Linux demo and the fact that they mention DRM-free release from the start!
