Looks like Cosmic Star Heroine could have a Linux version soon

By - | Views: 11,553
A little overdue, but Cosmic Star Heroine [Official Site, Steam, GOG] looks like it's finally coming onto Linux after the developer shared a shot of it running on Ubuntu.

Here's the shot they shared on Twitter:

Good to see something on it, since the game was funded on Kickstarter and released for Windows back in April, so we've been left waiting a little while. The game was delayed quite a while on all platforms, so they just wanted to get the game out and then get the Linux & Mac versions sorted. This will make Zeboyd Games' first Linux version of their games, so hopefully it works out well for them!

Check out the trailer:

I think it looks fantastic and the reviews so far have been pretty good.

The trailer looks like they played a bunch of classic sci-fi JRPGs and learned all the right lessons. Colour me intrigued.

I like the art and the gameplay type, I'm jumping right in when that happens.

Looks pretty cute, if it does come to Linux I might indeed grab a copy. Wishlisted.

I'll be picking up a copy once the Linux version comes to GOG.

So, they basically ran Kickstarter campaign several years ago, developed the entire game exclusively on Windows, not even checking Linux compatibility once, released the game and only after 3 months he (the "coder-guy" ) finally graces us with his first Linux install of the life.

They seem to be professionals of the highest caliber! "Promise now, deal with it later" at its best! Keep your fingers crossed that they didn't use some Windows-only plugins, like… you know… Obsidian (hello capes!) or Antagonist (Through the Woods.

Well, the line comes to mind "Not Tux, No Bux" I've seen here.

I was relatively excited for the game to come out, but glad I didn't pre-order in my excitement, as I've learned my lesson well on that mark, for sure enough there was no linux version available at launch.

Well, soon as it comes out and I've seen some reviews that it's not a bug fest, I'll pick it up ^.^

Nicely drawn, but the 480x270 resolution seems a bit too low to me.

EhvisNicely drawn, but the 480x270 resolution seems a bit too low to me.
It's low, but still higher than most SNES and Playstation classics. I know it's not much of an excuse, if there is indeed need for one.

True, but I was comparing them to the RPGMaker games, which are usually 640x480. Most RPGs I played were at a resolution of 256x212.
