The action adventure game 'Evoland Legendary Edition' arrives with Linux support

Posted by , | Views: 5,305

Shiro Games have officially released Evoland Legendary Edition and surprisingly it has official Linux support too.

Evoland is a journey through the history of action/adventure gaming, allowing you to unlock new technologies, gameplay systems and graphic upgrades as you progress through the game.

Inspired by many cult series that have left their mark in the RPG video gaming culture, Evoland takes you from monochrome to full 3D graphics and from active time battles to real time boss fights, all with plenty of humor and references to many classic games.

I'm surprised, since the original Evoland did release on Linux but sadly the second one never made it. Evoland Legendary Edition seems to combine both games into an updated experience, with the previous two seemingly no longer purchasable on Steam.

You can find it right now on Steam where it's 25% off until February 14th. If you own the first game, you should see a higher discount. I own the original, so for me the discount is currently 75% off which is pretty sweet. Additionally, if you own the second game you should see this already in your Steam library for free.

I played the first game until it got to the part where you had to battle random encounters. I know there are tons of fans of Final Fantasy games and the like, but, man, I hate random encounters. I couldn't stand it and uninstalled the game. I really liked the gaming transitions up to that point. I might pick up this edition, but might not. Looks like it's $5 for me at the moment.

I am really enjoying this game but I cannot find a solution to making this full screen. Did anyone find a solution to this, F11 does not work for me.

Try Alt+F11. That does the trick for me.

axredneckAFAIK You can use Wayland under X
edit: GTK3, Mesa, MPV, Retroarch and many other things also require Wayland.
These can use Wayland, but certainly do not require it luckily

Installing wayland libraries allows Evoland to start on my plain X11 setup, but then I get the not-fullscreen issue. Pragmatic workaround here: kick wayland libs out and switch to proton for this game (fullscreen without issue)

Is it more pragmatic than hitting Alt+F11?

Should have specified my "plain X11" is WindowMaker so no gnome3 (is it the one actually catching Alt-F11 and switching to fullscreen or the game?). Anyway Alt-F11 in my config is windows list popup (and using it in game does not apply fullscreen)

Thanks for help. Did not work for me. At first. The problem was that I did not have a shortcut defined. After defining "alt+f11" as fullscreen mode in Gnome shortcuts it worked. I am currently using Manjaro if this is at all relevant.

Forcing the window into fullscreen mode through your window manager seems to be the solution anyway. Most window managers have some sort of a shortcut for this. Didn't see anything in the docs for Window Maker, so maybe you're out of luck.
