Unepic, A Highly Rated 2D RPG Platformer Looks To Be Out For Linux

Posted by , | Views: 5,171
We have known Unepic had planned to come to Linux, but we never really knew when. Thankfully it seems the Linux version is now downloadable on Steam.

They haven't announced the Linux version yet, but they have just announced the Mac version, so the Linux announcement shouldn't be too far behind.

We are seeing reports on reddit, and their own Steam forums that the Linux version is playable, but it may be a little buggy right now. Either way with "Overwhelmingly Postive" reviews on Steam it looks like a good buy.
We haven't tested it ourselves due to not owning it yet, so don't take it from us directly that it's working yet.

As always we suggest buying it when the official Linux supported is listed, to prevent any last minute stings.

You can check out Unepic on Steam now though if you cannot wait.

About the game
Daniel was just an average guy. He was a great videogame player, a big fan of sci-fi movies, and a novice RPG player. In the midst of an RPG, he was teleported to a castle. At first, Daniel believed that he was having a massive hallucination. Eager to keep playing within the RPG to create his own adventure, he decides to go along for te ride until his delirium comes to an end.

Once inside the castle, Daniel is inhabited by a mysterious shadow. This dark spirit can communicate with Daniel, but not control him. The shadow has a simple goal: to escape from the prison of Daniel's body. There's a catch, though-- the dark spirit can only escape if Daniel perishes.

Struggling against enemies in the castle, with the dark spirit attempting to murder him at every turn. Daniel finally discovers his goal: to kill Harnakon, the master of the castle, and free the Pure-Spirits who are trapped within. While the stage seems set for a typical role-playing adventure, Daniel will soon discover that everything is not what it seems... Article taken from

It's a masterpiece!

Unfortunately, already bought on Windows. I will uninstall and reinstall on Linux, but unfortunately, the sales record will show Windows.

It's a really cool game. Funny twists, challenging levels.
I really enjoyed playing it. Alas, on Windows. I would love for this to count it for Linux!

But the port took an awful long time and it wasn't even playable in Wine (at least one or two years ago)
