Mayhem in Single Valley from developer Fluxscopic seems like an adventure not to be missed and it's releasing later this year, sometime in the "Fall", with Linux support.

It's a stylish top-down action adventure, mixing in combat and puzzles with a focus on "family and everyday struggles". It's quite an exaggerated tale, one where the craziest things you might read about happen a lot more frequently. You play as Jack, a local "troublemaker" who makes a series of major discoveries before he's supposed to leave home.

Check out the trailer, I think it looks great:

The bit with the squirrel really got me. Looks like it will have some really great humour in it.

Since it's listing Linux support on Steam and I thought it looked quite fun, I reached out to the developer on Twitter where they confirmed it.

The feature list is quite a surprise too, take a look:

  • An in-depth story with weird and wonderful fleshed-out characters.
  • Lots of level-up items, Easter eggs, and mini games.
  • Combine different food types, antidotes, and poisons to escape and/or manipulate crazed wildlife and bosses.
  • Pull, push, drag, and generally fling items about your environment to solve puzzles and overcome obstacles.
  • Throw in any direction as you run for your life.
  • Portable cassette player based soundtrack. You decide what music you'd like to accompany your battles.
  • The river has a current, anything that falls in will float down stream.
  • Your bag is your inventory, drop it if you want to swim across the river.
  • Crazed animals will chase you between levels. Shake them off if you want to survive.
  • Everything is modular, use NPCs like items, discard your cassette player/soundtrack, throw a fish enemy to distract a hungry bear.
  • Dynamic lighting and shadows... are those poisoned rats' eyes I see glowing in the dark.
  • Enemies and characters have multiple desires and fears. Squirrels are afraid of bears. Wake a bear, get him to chase you, to clear an escape route of nutty critters.

You can wishlist and follow it on Steam.
