Retro-inspired FPS 'DUSK' should still come to Linux after the main launch

Posted by , / 2573 views

Back in August last year I mentioned the retro-inspired FPS 'DUSK' [Steam] and how it may come to Linux. In the latest update, it seems it's still planned!

Here's a little reminder with the trailer:

From the update posted on Steam:

And what's planned for AFTER the full launch?
The DAWN SDK, Steam Workshop, Co-op?, Mac, Linux and who knows what else! 
It's gonna be a long year.

Good to see it still firmly in their minds, obviously there's no set date for the Linux version but we will keep you posted on it. Hopefully we won't be waiting too long, but handling multiple versions for a small developer can be a pretty daunting task so it's not always ideal to release all versions at the same time.

Update: The developer noticed our post here on Twitter, quoted the tweet and said "Planning on it!"—nice!

About the game:

DUSK reintroduces you to a world where butchery and bloodshed must be mastered if you're to survive 'til dawn. Inspired by Quake, Blood, Heretic, Hexen, Half-Life, Redneck Rampage and all your '90s favorites, and featuring a soundtrack by metal music mastermind Andrew Hulshult.

Personally, I'm quite excited by this one. I do absolutely love FPS games and we really don't have enough decent single-player FPS on Linux.

Man I hope they follow through. I've been eyeing this game for a long time.

All the games mentioned as inspiration are some of my all time favorites.

This and that Hexen-a-like seems to mean a promising future for retro run and gun games.

That trailer ending though ... LOL

Interesting, but again Steam only? They should try itch.io.

Anyone got an idea what engine this is using? Either they copied Quake very well, or this might actually run on an open source Quake engine?

From that i see this is very "GOG"ish game.

My type of game.

I tried this game, it uses unity. But if you want a retro game like that, try quake or blood, those are better.
