Honestly surprised we haven't heard much about this one as it looks rather good! A Rite from the Stars from developer Risin' Goat and Phoenix Online Publishing just released with Linux support.

A Rite from the Stars is another game that was funded thanks to Kickstarter, where the developer gained $41,302 in funding from 811 backers. We actually covered it here in issue 37 of our old "The Funding Crowd" crowdfunding roundup articles. That was back in 2014 though, so it's easy to forget.

I honestly thought this was dead for a while. I'm a backer, and after four years I'm mildly shocked this is being released. Really glad to see them living up to their promise and vision.

Ah, the star thing. Forgot about that, excited to see it.

Apparently they are sending keys by hand, so it could take a day for everyone to get one. If we've waited four years, what's another day?

QuoteThroughout the day we will send you all the keys so that all of you can play. It will be a slow process, as we do it by hand and we want to have control of all the keys so that none are misplaced and to solve possible problems that may occur.

Looks fun!

Too bad about the trendy choices/consequences and multiple endings bullshit. (I'll retract these words if there's more to it than slogging through hours of the same with maybe minor dialogue differences and a different ending sequence.)

I don't feel like it forces me to play again. It just gives more meaning to my single playthrough. (Generally spoken, I don't know about this game.)

I just end up feeling like I'm missing some of the content. It's hard to be a completionist who gets bored easily.

They removed mentions of it from the Steam page, but they might not have taken the build down. Possibly has issues, i'm just going by what they said to me.
