Surprise - Supraland for Linux is now available on GOG

Posted by , | Views: 5,640

I will admit, I am quite surprised. Supraland from Supra Games recently released on GOG and it was only for Windows. The developer said some odd things about it all and now it seems they changed their mind, thankfully.

Today, the Linux version of Supraland officially went live on GOG and GOG themselves sent over a copy for me to check out. I've already played through the demo on Steam and apart from some performance issues here and there, it's a delightful game.

If you've not played it, the whole game is incredibly colourful with an sort-of open-world 3D setting in a literal sandbox. You're basically running around something designed by a child, complete with blocks that look like Lego. It's stylish, the puzzles and exploration are great and I love finding secrets.

No issues with the GOG version, runs as expected. Nice to be able to continue progress from the demo too!

Always nice when a story has a happy ending. So now you can pick up the Linux version of Supraland on either GOG or Steam and both stores have the demo too.

As a reminder Supra Games are also currently crowdfunding for Supraland 2 on Kickstarter, which is confirmed to be coming to Linux as well.

PatolaThankfully this game did not go the Witcher 3 way. The collective reaction and the complaints about performance made me fear it would happen.

I'm afraid that complains won't stop. I leave the probable sequence:
_start:
  • Bad performance

  • Performance not equal to Windows performance

  • Linux builds shipped later than Windows one's

  • Switch to Unity

  • jmp _start

Oh, that was fast! Ok, I'll buy it then.
Good news the demo is also available on Linux, I'll give it some try.

Though, I hope the future updates will come to GOG too, not like some games.

Huh. Well I gotta say, if I'd been setting fire to bridges as hard as that guy was, I would have had a really hard time getting myself to build them again, so kudos there. Interesting fellow.

Unless I'm imagining things, the ones having lower than expected performance all seem to have Nvidia GPU's. Myself included. Isn't that an interesting possibility?

after the linux community biching around because of gog, i never had thought they would publish it on gog

i dont get it. steam is just a click for the download.
on gog you have to download the game... each and every part.
than you have to install it manually
and patches wont come automatically

as long as gog dont give a peep about linux, i wont buy a game there

i know they are DRM free, but they screwed linux with witcher 3 and they wont give us a linux client. so i dont give them my money
for me linux support is more important, than DRM free games

And releasing something new immediately after the Steam summer sale is rather anti-smart.

Edit: Oh well, the pic/post is fake?

I noticed the addition of the Linux version earlier today at work. The dev may not have started with the right foot with GOG users, but what matters is that he changed his mind and released it, to a certain point it's more than some other devs do/did with their Linux releases.

TLDR - Bought the game, he deserves the support.

This is great! Unfortunately, I tried the demo and there is no sound, and even with everything on low it’s stuck at 30 FPS.

I like how we get into the polemics over some tweets, and it all turns out nicely.
