Stealth and hacking game 'OFF GRID' fully funded and heading to Linux

Posted by , | Views: 4,620

OFF GRID, a stealth and hacking game about privacy and mass surveillance managed to get funded on Kickstarter and so it's coming to Linux. 

Moments before your daughter was bundled away, she gave you a pair of smart glasses for your birthday.

An unidentified source gets in touch to help you install a new security-focused operating system, and gives you a few tools which will help you gain access to networks that might contain clues as to what is going on.

In the end, they managed to hit £25,252 which means they smashed through not just their initial goal but the first stretch goal too so the game will get an in-game social media app.

I personally funded this one, since they put out a Linux demo and the developer came and commented on our previous article. Some people get rightfully worried about developers promising Linux support and not delivering, to which the developer commented with:

Hah, we certainly won't abandon Linux, I've used Ubuntu as my main OS since 2005 and do most of my gaming on it. So making sure our own project runs on it is high priority to us.

Was really good to see such a statement. 

Looking forward to following this one along during development, has the makings of a very interesting game both in terms of the story and the gameplay.

For those playing the demo from Itch.io and the game appears to be frozen after launch:
For me on Ubuntu there's a dialog hidden behind the game window that the game doesn't react and giving you the option to wait or force quit. That hidden dialog seems to capture all inputs. After switching to it and choosing choosing wait the game runs well. :-)
