The Cyanide & Happiness Adventure Game is officially coming to Linux

Posted by , / 4981 views

Now this is some fun news! The Cyanide & Happiness Adventure Game [Kickstarter] is officially heading to Linux as their Kickstarter stretch goal has been hit.

Announced in an update last month, the developers posted the exciting announcement after passing the $450K stretch goal.

At time of writing, they've hit over $565K in funding against their original $300K goal which is impressive. They only have 5 hours left to go, so it's pleasing that it's funded and coming to Linux too!

About the game:

The game will be a new approach to point-and-click adventures, filled with dark comedy, drama, weirdness, and an apocalypse in the suburbs. This is the first time we're making something set in the unified C&H Universe, so we're completely excited to be making this for you!

As a huge fan of their comics, I think I might enjoy this one. It might be rather old, but this one still gets me. I don't often like comedy adventure games, but something tells me this is going to be a bit special.

As with all Kickstarters, I just hope they don't leave Linux as an afterthought, especially considering they've taken funds in the form of a stretch goal to make it happen.

They aim to release the first chapter by December next year, so it's going to be a bit of a wait. Will you be buying it at release?

Thanks for the tip Zlopez!

lidstahBut I do agree on the fact that this kind of distro is more oriented to people who knows (or who want to know and thus pay the price for knowledge) the inners of their operating system and who like tinkering with it ("Oh, a problem? nice! let's solve it!" ). Obviously, people who want an "it just work" solution should head to more user-friendly distros - which is perfectly fine, no elitism intended.
My comment had nothing to do with how difficult these distros are to use and maintain.

Rolling release distributions do not provide a stable target for developers to test on, which means it's harder to commit to long term support. Being source-based adds its own set of variables to this equation. It's much easier to promise support for a specific release of Ubuntu for example. If a game is tested to work on Ubuntu 16.04 now, it's quite likely it will work on Ubuntu 16.04 in half a year. That's all I meant. No room for elitism in this discussion.
