12 East Games new atmospheric first-person exploration and puzzle game has launched on itch.io, it looks incredible.
The developer, 12 East Games, was founded by Aubrey Serr, who worked on Wolfire games like Overgrowth and Receiver. They're now doing their own stuff and this is their first title.
The game was funded on Fig in 2016, where it gained over $21K in funding from 465 backers, although $12K of that came from Fig directly.
Our contributor Cheeseness actually posted an article highlighting this title back in 2016, so it's pleasing to see that the Linux version has arrived with day-1 support.
