Need something to scare you silly this Halloween? The indie survival horror Walls Closing In has Linux support.
Walls Closing In follows the story of Grace Bailey as she attempts to escape the clutches of a crazed maniac quickly becoming known as 'The Butcher of Northbury Grove'. It's a difficult game, one that's supposed to scare you and test your survival skills. The odds are against you, it has level-based permanent death and items are randomized on each run so you need to search the environment for helpful tools to survive.
It's pretty dark and gross in places too definitely one to play with the lights off, sound up and kids in bed.
The developer, Scythe Dev Team, added a Linux version earlier this month. After a rough start, it now seems to work quite well. Originally, the game started with a black screen so we had to wait for some fixes. When going over the logs, it turned out the developer was using Unity's HDRP which doesn't work with OpenGL so they've switched to Vulkan.
