With a seriously beautiful style to it, Sail Forth looks like a pretty sweet naval adventure game coming to Linux later this year.
Sail Forth is a procedural sailing adventure about classic naval action and exploring beautiful scenery. Embark on a journey through varied environments, grow your fleet and do battle with pirates, sea monsters, and the sea itself!
Linux support is fully confirmed with a nice tux icon on the official website, which is also shown in their recent announcement trailer below:
Features (according to the developer)
- Physically simulated boats - With great care taken to enable casual play while retaining real sailing concepts.
- Unique environments - Each containing their own flora and fauna and ambient soundtrack.
- Customization - Choose from a variety of flag and sail designs, find new weapons and equipment for your boats.
- Build your fleet - No need to give up your cool boat when you get a new one, add it to your fleet and continue your adventure if one boat sinks.
I'm keen to try more naval adventure games, as there's not many that's actually good and available to play on Linux. Developed by David Evans, it looks like one to watch.
You can wishlist and follow it on Steam.
