Point & Click Adventure game "The Hand of Glory" confirmed for Linux

Posted by , | Views: 4,701

Madit Entertainment are currently crowdfunding for their new Point & Click adventure game "The Hand of Glory", as it turns out they've confirmed Linux support too.

Coming across it recently, it didn't actually list Linux support on the campaign itself. After speaking to the developer, they pointed me to this announcement that mentions "Our community has spoken and we listened! We did our tests and we can now confirm that we will be able to support Mac and Linux in the game!", so that's fantastic news. The developer told me they will be updating the campaign to list it too.

More about it:

The Hand of Glory is an adventure game inspired by the golden age of point and click, especially by the Broken Sword and Gabriel Knight sagas.

Find out who kidnapped Elke Mulzberg and unveil a mystery that has its roots in alchemy and esoterism!

Something obscure is crawling behind the dazzling glaze of Miami, a force that goes beyond the usual human concept of science and religion. There is a silent, latent war going on, a war able to shatter the foundations of civilization, harnessing ancient knowledge and mystical arts lost for centuries.Get ready to face a long and dangerous journey. It might be the last.

Feature Highlight:

  • More than 15 hours of gameplay
  • Thousands of dialogue lines
  • Dozens of puzzles to solve   
  • Control Lars and Alice and explore Miami and Italy in wonderful 2D Full-HD locations
  • Original atmospheric soundtrack and full English voice-over  

More good news, is that it's already fully funded. Against their goal of €8,000 they've managed to currently reach €8,707 with around 5 days left of the crowdfunding campaign.

I'm a complete sucker for stylish cartoony graphics and a good story, so this looks and sound like it could be very interesting to play though. Find it on Kickstarter here and you can also wishlist/follow it on Steam.

It has been added to our dedicated Crowdfunding Page as it's funded and confirmed for Linux.

Will it actually feature a Hand of Glory, though?

And for the semi-related music video for today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdgClNdnooM

That's good. I played the demo and it worked perfectly with Proton, but a native version is always the preferred option.
