Looks like the Linux version of the challenging action platformer Damsel is coming

Posted by , | Views: 3,057

While it didn't manage to get funding on Kickstarter, the challenging action platformer Damsel released on Steam for Windows in October, with it looking like a Linux version is coming too.

To expand on that a little: The developer, Screwtape Studios, attempted to get around £28K on Kickstarter last year. Their funding was unsuccessful, with only around £4K actually being pledged. They didn't give up, with a full release on October 18th on Steam.

NuSuey of TuxDB notified us today about it popping up on their radar. When checking on this with info available on SteamDB, it's very clearly having a Linux version being worked on. Linux was included as a platform on the Kickstarter, so it's pleasing to see they didn't give up on that either.

Great the made it without KS.
Looks like my kind of game. If they also target a GOG release at some point it's definitely going to enter my wishlist quite high...

Hey, that looks pretty cool. Something indie that isn't roguelike!
