After a lengthy beta period, STASIS [Steam, Official Site] the fantastic and gruesome looking point & click horror game is now officially available on Linux.


The announcement is here, where it seems you do still need to opt-in to a beta with a password of "torvalds1969" and then select "linux test 1". I imagine it will be pushed into the main download within a few days. Their wording on it all is a little confusing, since it's had a beta for a long time and they now announce it's available, but you still need a beta.

According to the announcement, there are some issues with non-English languages. It looks like if you have issues, you can switch it to English, load a saved game and then switch the language back (source).

About the game
QuoteSTASIS is a point-and-click, sci-fi - horror adventure game played from a unique isometric perspective. STASIS intertwines a gruesome narrative with retro adventure gameplay. Combine items, interact with computers and solve puzzles while experiencing the gritty atmosphere.

In the distant future, aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft, John Maracheck awakes from stasis. He must push himself to new physical and emotional limits and unravel the mysteries around him.

John is in tremendous pain, his wife and daughter are missing, and time is running out as the Groomlake plunges further into the swirling blue methane clouds of Neptune.


Lovely stuff, been looking forward to this one!

This was selected as a must purchase for the current Steam sale.

Although I like the fact developers keep publishing games for Linux, horror is not for me. I'll pass.

It's not so bad.
Don't think of this as alien isolation.
It's more mild and atmospheric.

"non-English languages"…
Like there are "English languages" (i.e. English somehow became a category)…
Sorry to be a "Grammar Nazi", but I think "languages, other than English" would be more appropriate.

Still no word on DRM-free release?

I hate that f***ing Xenomorph. Sadly, I decided to "shrink" my Pile o' Shame by playing all the games that I haven't played yet in alphabetical order. Guess what.

^ That's a feature for a reason.

Also, there is British English and American English, so languages is correct. Especially when I don't agree they are the same

Very very cool. The Brotherhood has been very active to get this to work properly. They were depending on updates from the engine developer so it was a bit of back and forth until all game breaking bugs had been fixed.

"Unfortunately" I already bought it, when it was in Linux beta... but it was bought from the Steam Linux client, so it should count as a Linux sale

LOL
I know the feel.
Still haven't played Amneisa.
Maybe with a little bit of dutch courage (aka booze) will attempt it one day.

But this Stasis game has a good environment and atmosphere , only a few scary moments , more opressive by isolation and weird setting than outright being chased by monster #0x11359

Sorry, my bad. It is a magic how "Internet-aware" people get accustomed to filtering certain things on certain places (like not paying attention to page sides, headers or in this case, "something between posts", because that's where advertisement usually is). This button simply blurred in my vision. :-( Will use it from now on.
liamdaweAlso, there is British English and American English, so languages is correct.
Different dialects, maybe. But not languages. Besides, there are a lot more of those: "Australian English", "New Zealand English", "Scientific English", "Legal English", "Patent English" and, most important, "Internet English" which we all are using.

Yeah, I'm quite curious about Stasis. Got it for free a while ago on GoG (spring sale maybe?). But "S" is still out of reach xD
