The Pedestrian is one of the more unusual games that has been emailed in recently, as it's platformer but what it does with the unique setting is quite amusing.
I had never heard of this until my inbox lit up early this morning, turns out The Pedestrian is a Kickstarter campaign I missed back in 2017 so it's been a while now. It was fully funded, with Skookum Arts LLC managing to get a sweet $30K to bring it to life. The campaign did list Linux support on the main page and the FAQ but since it was a while ago, I managed to get up to date confirmation from the developer on Twitter today.
With that out of the way, what's different about it exactly? Well, it's all centred around the design of public signs and you play as The Pedestrian (aka the male bathroom symbol). With the 2.5D viewpoint, you play the platforming elements like it's a flat 2D platformer but the environments around you are fully 3D. The puzzle factor comes from the fact that a lot of signs need to be linked together and it's your job to do so, so you break-out of platforming to move signs around with the mouse and link them together to make a path to the exit.
I think it's brilliant, really excited to see what a full game will offer with this wonderful idea for a puzzle platformer, can't think of another game that's done anything similar but I'm sure you will educate me in the comments if there is. Either way, it's great.
Thanks for the tip, anonymous "GamingOnLinux Reader".
