Timespinner, the fun metroidvania is now available on GOG with a Linux build

Posted by , | Views: 3,059

After the release on Steam late last month, Timespinner is now available DRM free on GOG for more of you to go exploring. They have the latest patch build too with a couple of bug fixes. Note: Key provided by GOG.

After playing it myself, I was also quite impressed with it. Some lovely music, a great visual style and it works great with the Steam Controller when paired with SC Controller (for use outside of Steam). For more thorough thoughts, definitely take a look at BTRE's post linked above.

I have to say, Kickstarter backer, that this game is absolutely lovely. The pixel art is stunning at points, the music is outstanding, overall just a fantastic game in my opinion. I've been recommending it to everyone. If you're not into metroidvania games, I actually am not really, it might still be up your alley.

I also thoroughly enjoy the story as it's not like most games have become where there's a hero and a villain that are black and white and the villain does evil things because they're evil.
