In need of a new co-op game? The developer of Tiny Barbarian DX [Steam, Official Site] has just a few days ago release the Linux version of their 2D platformer.

The game was originally funded on Kickstarter, back in December of 2012, where they secured $15,457 funding. A Linux version wasn't in their original plan, but they were open to supporting it in future.

The game released on Steam a few years ago, with a post on Steam asking for Linux support being around for a while too. Interestingly, the developer said back in May of 2016 that they thought it would be "great" to have it on Linux. Took a while, but now it's released!

About the game:

A Kick-Ass Blast of 16-Bit Sword-and-Sorcery Action!

Steel yourself for a relentless display of might and muscle…of brawn and bravery…of magic and mayhem! Can you cleave your enemies’ skulls, plunder all the booty and flex to impress the barbarienne of your dreams? Inspired by heroic fantasy fiction, Tiny Barbarian DX combines engaging 2D platform action and combo-based hack-and-slash combat with retro-style pixel art and a loincloth-stirring chiptune soundtrack.

Thanks for the tip Xu!

Wow, great news. This game is amazing, I played it a bit when I had a windows laptop from work, and its been sitting idle in my steam games list for a long time now. Glad to be able to play it again, and with some luck, save games will be compatible and I'll be able to pick it up where I left it.

Nowadays, it's how you recognise a game published by Nicalis

1001 Spikes, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth (and Afterbirth+), Toribash, VVVVVV and Ikachan for 3DS, along others.

They apparently are known for some overpriced stuff and delays...

Also, if the legends are true, they will keep re-publishing Cave Story until the end of the times.

Maybe a -75% discount would fit.
