Forged from an ancient tale of Celtic mythology. An action-adventure set in a future Ireland devastated by technomagical war and economic collapse, humanity clings on by using the remnants of technology that survive. When their ancient spring of life begins to fail, an unwanted orphan child must leave the safety of his villages' mountaintop refuge. With only an ancient sword and a mysterious metal glove, he ventures into lands unexplored and twisted by strange ancient powers.

The visuals in Ku: Shroud of the Morrigan are simply fantastic, looks like it will be a good title to play with game-pads with its full controller support.

I've known about this game coming to Linux for some-time now, I asked on their desura page back in September of 2013 and they confirmed a Linux version was in the works, it's really good to see it come to light! I hope they add their Linux version to Desura soon too.

Got some negative reviews on Steam... since it looks quite similar to Bastion I think I'll give a try. And Celtic mythology is something not really seen on videogames
