The Eternal Castle: Remastered is now available on Linux

Posted by , | Views: 7,678

The Eternal Castle is a remaster of an old classic, except it kind of isn't. The story is a little peculiar but the game does look quite fantastic and it's available now on Linux.

In regards to the brand new Linux version, the developer sent out a Twitter post early this morning to note that a Linux version is now up thanks to the help of Linux game porter Ryan "Icculus" Gordon.

So what's the story here? From what I understand, it's basically a bit of fun marketing for it. The developers said it was a remaster of a long forgotten 1987 title and somewhat a homage to classics like The Prince of Persia and Another World. It's all a lie though, there was no original game. Think of it like all those films that claim to be "based on a true story" (when you know they're really not). The fakery of it is part of what makes it mysterious though. Best not to look into it too much and ruin the fun. Take the game as it is, which is a beautiful retro inspired title with some seriously wild visuals.

Feature Highlight:

  • Action:  The Eternal Castle sends you in a powerful journey packed with dangers and challenges through fast-paced melee action, calibrated ranged attacks, and/or cautious stealth approaches.
  • Adventure:  Immerse yourself or speedrun through levels featuring random events, encounters, traps, riddles and exploration, in a semi-procedural world set up for replayability.
  • Atmosphere:  Each world features a unique atmosphere, written through different personal and second hand experiences, re-applied to fit a post A.I. fallout world set several hundred years in the future.

  • Play over 20 levels across 5 unique worlds
  • Fight a BOSS at the end of each world plus 2 final Bosses

Also doesn't work for me on another system with recent ArchLinux.

On which Linux distribution is this running at all?
Ubuntu/SteamOS?

And no reply so far on the support request.

That's annoying, really.
Playing now using Windows.
I'm getting more and more pragmatic.

It's weekend so I wouldn't expect any responses or patches anyway. They did patch the game once so hopefully they'll get the rest of the issues throughout next week.
