Renaine is one I don't remember hearing about before, originally funded on Kickstarter this absolutely gorgeous pixel-art platformer is coming out this year and you need to take a look.

I've obviously seen a lot of platformers and even more low-resolution pixel-art games in my time. Heck, I grew up playing games on the Amiga but the style of Renaine is something quite different to a lot of recent releases. It's still retro but the vibrancy of it does look incredible:

As we know, a Steam store page listing Linux/SteamOS requirements aren't actually enough to confirm a game will support Linux, due to the amount of times that gets removed (often without a word). So I spoke to one of the developers on their Discord today, who confirmed to me Linux will be supported!

As for the full release, in one of their more recent Kickstarter updates they mentioned October this year after suffering some delays.

You can wishlist and follow it on Steam.

If the music from the trailers is the music from the game, then it's enough to turn me off from wanting to play it.

I don't remember the last time I got so hyped, just cuz an OST.

I'm really curious to see my reaction, dying a lot while listening to stuff like this:

Lovely art style. I wonder if the pallette is based on a specific system.
