Observer [Official Site], a brand new horror from the developers of 'Layers of Fear' has been announced. It's being published by Aspyr Media once again and I have it confirmed it will be on Linux.
It's being developed with Unreal Engine 4, so hopefully with Aspyr Media helping out, Bloober Team should be able to get a polished Linux version sorted.
It was initially only teased at E3 last year, but it's good to get some confirmation now.
Little is known about it, but Layers of Fear was a quality horror title that was really well done. So I look forward to seeing what Bloober and Aspyr can cook up for us.
