Littlewood, a peaceful town-building RPG from developer Sean Young now has a Linux demo available. I've spent a few hours playing and it's really quite sweet.
It's hit well over thirty thousand dollars in funding, which means it's completely smashed through a bunch of stretch goals and so it should get some interesting additional content. This includes new NPCs, new buildings, a card game, more character customisation and plenty more.
The Linux demo has been running beautifully, impressed me enough to consider backing it myself to support another developer doing a sweet Linux game. I'm not surprised it's doing so well, looks like it's hitting a sweet spot for a lot of people going by the comments the developer has been seeing.
It does remind me of Stardew Valley, which is to be expected since both seem to share some of the same inspiration. Littlewood is quite a different game though, both in style and how it feels to play it.
Find it on Kickstarter, with a minimum pledge of $15 to get a copy.
Even if you miss the Kickstarter, you won't exactly be waiting long. The developer expects it to hit Early Access at the end of March.
