Surprise - Supraland for Linux is now available on GOG

Posted by , | Views: 5,686

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.

dpanterUnless 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?

I have a GTX1080, and running at 3440x1440 I get a solid 20fps

Try dropping the resolution scale a bit, I saw the most drastic performance improvements from that setting alone. You might not even see a difference at 80%. Hell, even 50% scale and all other settings maxed looked pretty good. Sort of 'soft focus' mode.

Did some testing with a 1080Ti, same resolution as you. Details in the Supraland Steam forums.

Purple Library GuyHuh. 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.
Fire to bridges? It was more like a small spark on a twig in the middle of nowhere given it's a niche store on a niche OS with an even more niche group of complainers (Linux gamers who think DRM-free on Steam isn't DRM-free). Good for him for uploading to GOG, but if it was my game I wouldn't even reply and avoid this drama all together.

Doesn't really matter how numerous or significant a group is, being rude to them is still being rude. Heck, being rude to just one person is still being rude. And as I say, once you've done that it can be very difficult to walk it back; you tend to get committed to your obnoxious stance because you don't want to admit to yourself that you're being a jerk. Like me, I'm sure you would find such a climb-down very hard.

MekaDragonI wouldn't call the performance issues like "here and there" when it can barely achieve 50fps everything in the lowest setting on my GTX970 and i5 4670k@4.00GHz...
Use the vsync force...

How can V-Sync help me when I don't even reach 60fps...?

It stabilize your fps. I also get around 50 fps, but with vsync they get fixed to that number (literally).

This game works amazingly on my system. Played it for about 2 hours so far with no issues. Great game, the puzzles are really fun.

Steam have it on a Daily Deal at 33% off, so that's a no-brainer (about 11 USD equivalent). Looking forward to giving it a spin.

If I don't reach 60fps, the game will cap to 30fps if I activate V-Sync. I have a standard 60hz monitor, not a Freesync or G-Sync one.

50fps at ultra low isn't good.

I bought this game last week, after i got hooked up in the Demo. This game is a masterpiece!
