Psychological horror with erotic and occult themes 'Lust for Darkness' is planned for Linux, however the developer wants to see demand.

Here's what they initially said:

We are open to Linux platform and it's possible sometime in the future, but we need to wait and see how big the demand is. Keep bringing your requests and they won't be overlooked.

However, Linux was actually a confirmed platform going back to their Kickstarter (see their FAQ). When queried about this, they clarified what they meant:

We didn't make it clear enough. Linux and Mac are still our plans for the future, but we are a small team who needs to prioritize their tasks. That's why we need to know how big the demand is on each system, to decide where to go first.

So, if you want to have it on Linux and be more of a priority, it might be an idea to let them know in this linked forum topic on Steam. It's still not great that we have to wait like this, but it's fair enough that a small team needs to prioritise.

It can be found on Humble Store and Steam.

You can see a trailer below, probably NSFW due to the themes:

BeamboomWhat is it?
Literally the first words in the article: "Psychological horror with erotic and occult themes"

While it may not say much about the actual gameplay, it does say a lot about the game.

Nice, we need more good horror games on Linux (assuming this one is good).

PublicNuisanceIf they bring it to Linux i'll buy it. Simple as that. Game looks awesome and right up my alley.

It would be great to have a GOG release too! But last time I checked their Kickstarter page, they weren't sure about this...

I added it to the GOG wishlist. Feel free to vote:

Bummer. I already watched a let's play of this game because I had never expected it to come out for Linux. Now I can't play it because I've already seen all the spoilers. It's a pretty unconventional combination of dark erotic and horror game, although the ending was a bit unimpressive.

83 Linux upvotes so far.
How many will it take? Will there ever be a reply from the devs?
