I'm incredibly excited to watch how Inner Chains [Official Site, Steam] has been progressing and now we have a proper look at some early gameplay.

The visual design is incredible and is something I would have expected to come from someone like H. R. Giger (RIP).

The game was funded on Kickstarter where it was given $18,708 towards development. Linux was a stretch goal, but it was set at $15,000 so they gathered well over what they requested for a Linux version.

I actually considered pledging on the Kickstarter as it looked so good, but I couldn't bring myself to do it if it was a stretch-goal. I am hoping this doesn't mean it's a low priority since they have the funding they requested now.

It's due out sometime next year.

The atmosphere looks amazing!
Let's hope for a day 1 Linux support.

If they follow through with a Linux version they will have my money.

Atmosphere freaks me out. Very well done. A lot of glitches still (animations, the rocks falling and simply disappearing), but hey, it's pre-alpha..

This looks good based on that video. Although I suspect I'd prefer it more if it were just a "walking simulator" sans shooting.

UE4 game? I fear we will be disappointed again because of any kind of technical issues like "middleware" stopping the linux release.
I still want shadowarrior 2 so much which is another example of a not yet released linux UE4 game.
( I still hope the best especially because devolver digital and flyig wildhog were always very linux friendly !)

Are there many released UE4 games for linux yet?
I only found a UE4 game called "Steamroll" with linux support yet .

Looks very nice. I'll get it if it comes to Linux.

This shows the kind of place most politicians should be banished to.

drvictor666: place in "Agony" looks better for them :D. Also I wish this game on Linux too, as it seems even more brutal than "Inner Chains". However I wait impatiently for "IC".
