After some delays, adventure game Night in the Woods [, Steam, Official Site] has officially landed with day-1 Linux support and it looks very good.

I don't have a review key for this one, or any contact with the developer right now so I may not be able to cover it any further.

About the game
College dropout Mae Borowski returns home to the crumbling former mining town of Possum Springs seeking to resume her aimless former life and reconnect with the friends she left behind. But things aren't the same. Home seems different now and her friends have grown and changed. Leaves are falling and the wind is growing colder. Strange things are happening as the light fades.

And there's something in the woods.

NIGHT IN THE WOODS is an adventure game focused on exploration, story, and character, featuring dozens of characters to meet and lots to do across a lush, vibrant world. After a successful Kickstarter it's being made by Infinite Fall, a teamup of Alec Holowka (Aquaria), Scott Benson (Late Night Work Club), and Bethany Hockenberry. Article taken from

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

Oh god, rhythm game segments just might kill it for me. The rest of it looks quirky and wonderful.

Such a beautiful art style. I'm somewhat reminded of Little Big Planet. Will definitely check this out.

The art style reminded me the failed "Nothing to Hide" game.

I backed this on Kickstarter ages ago and started playing it last night - only had time for about an hour, but I'm not disappointed.

Remember that you can play Lost Constellation and Longest Night on for free, both of which are great previews of the art style and writing.

I pre-ordered this back in 2014, so I'm super eager to play. But circumstances mean that I won't be able to until Saturday. Alas, cruel fate!
