Love your adventure games? It seems KING Art Games are developing a new one called Shakes & Fidget which is on Kickstarter.
King Art previously developed The Book of Unwritten Tales, The Dwarves, Battle Worlds: Kronos and more. They have a good history of Linux support and it seems this will be no different.
What's weird, is that King Art themselves have linked to it, they also have the trailer on their YouTube so it is official, yet the Kickstarter for it was created by Playa Games GmbH. So they seem to have teamed up for this one.
They are seeking €250,000 and they already have €60,142 with 33 days to go, so it's more than likely that it will be funded.
In the official FAQ, Linux is noted as a release platform:
Our first target plattforms will be PC, Mac and Linux. […]
About the game:
Shakes & Fidget – The Adventure is all about silly fun. We are not "Citizen Kane", we are "The Naked Gun meets Spaceballs".
We love crazy point & click adventure games like "Day of the Tentacle" or "Sam & Max", with demented characters, hair-raising stories and whacky puzzles.
Great cartoon-style graphics by Shakes & Fidget creator Marvin Clifford and tons of 2D animations to feast your eyes upon. And for your audio enjoyment only the best voice actors and an orchestral score!
Will you be backing it, or will you be waiting until the release? I must admit, this one does look and sounds pretty good. Looks like my kind of humour too, so it will be awesome to see it on Linux.
Thanks for the tip Bumadar!
