Black Riddles Studio has finally shown Crazy Justice [Official Site] on Ubuntu, although it's only a small teaser of their third-person shooter it has me excited.

Crazy Justice is the third-person shooter developed by two brothers, which was crowdfunded on Fig where they managed to get $51K in funding. Since the campaign finished, they've hit just shy of $70K thanks to people pre-ordering it.

They later announced a Battle Royale mode, which has me excited because Linux doesn't really have one currently. You could argue we have stuff with last man standing modes, sure, but they're quite different. Given how popular the BR genre is, it will be sweet to have it on Linux. As a reminder, the Early Access release should hopefully be available before the end of June. Looks like I might be getting an early birthday present this year…

They did promise they were testing it on Linux as they developed it and it appears so, here's the tweet they sent out:

#CrazyJustice #Linux gameplay footage revealed! 😱 It means that, Linux players will be able to experience the #CrossPlay feature at 60FPS on 4K screens, even in #Steam Early Access! 😍 #Ubuntu #Ubuntu1804 #ue4 #gamer #gaming #gamedev #indiedev #gamingonlinux #indiegamedev pic.twitter.com/ELD1VVmcgc

The developer sent us over a higher quality version of the video than what Twitter shows, which we're hosting on our YouTube channel:

They also recently shared another teaser on Twitter, which shows how a Battle Royale game will start. They did say it's still in-progress, so animations aren't final of course.

One of the bigger features of the game, will be cross-platform multiplayer. Seeing this feature more often is pleasing!

You all might have to drag me away from this when it releases for Linux.

Well does Give Me One Less Reason to log into windows, now if they could just make an MMO I can stand they all look terrible(that have Linux support). I could say farewell windows forever.

I can't really see how this is going to be somewhat successfull.
From the Teaser it almost exactly looks like Fortnite.

Im not expecting it to take over Fortnite or PUBG, but I don't think a lot of people will play it
given that they want to sell it for 25$ (~20€).

The same can be said for any game that's similar to any other. I highly doubt they're going in expecting the level of success of Fortnite.

Do remember we're a Linux site, we don't have anything like Fortnite and it probably never will come to Linux. For us, Crazy Justice is a safe bet.

Look at his profile. He is using Windows too and his comparisons will be Windows based , not Linux.

One of these days a Linux compatible game will rise to the status of fadware. It is all a matter of chance.

I will buy it if it looks really fun. PUBG wasn't free either. That's the only thing that keeps me booting Windows up once or twice a month. If there was a game that could replace PUBG well enough that my friends would be okay saying "goodbye" to PUBG, then I would probably blast away my Windows hard drive sooner than my personal deadline (once Win7 finishes EOL support).

I love how they recorded the monitor, more people should do that to get a feel of the game running :D

I bet they thought setting that up would be quicker than learning how to record gameplay on Linux. :)

Or maybe they wanted to avoid the overhead to make it perform as well as possible for the video...

So all we need to see now is some actual gameplay.
