With only a couple of days left to go, the Kickstarter for the RPG Last Epoch has just managed to scrape by to get fully funded and their demo has seen a few good updates. It looked like it might be a bit dicey for Eleventh Hour Games, but thankfully it seems they had a bit of a push over the last few days.
As a reminder, here's how they describe it:
Last Epoch is a loot-based Action RPG that combines time travel, deep character customization, crafting, and an engrossing item system that guarantees endless replayability.
Honestly, I'm impressed that they've kept updating the demo across all platforms, Linux included. Originally, they only intended the demo to last around 30 minutes, but they said in a recent update people having been repeatedly going back to it over a period of days. They made it clear that the full version will improve the animations, sound, skill FX and so on.
They've updated the demo twice since the Linux build has been available, which has updated the graphics, crafting panel, arena, unique items, tooltips, and bug fixes, as well as the addition of new skills. I decided to jump back in and do some more, since I really did enjoy the initial Linux demo. Here's a little look at it running on Linux:
The main thing is that it's actually fun! Performance isn't stellar, but considering this is an extremely early build it's acceptable enough to get a good idea of what it could be like when it's further developed.
