Video Of Skullgirls Running On Linux Released, Looks Very Promising

Posted by , | Views: 8,657
Skullgirls, the 2D fighting game with quite a saga built upon its Linux port, has released a video of the port in action.

Back in May of this year, the developers noted the port is now being done officially (rather than a volunteer effort).

I, for one, am very excited to finally play this game especially now after the recent free week it had on Steam, which got some of my friends to start playing the game already.

Not sure if it's the video, the Linux port or the original game but isn't the sound a bit off, with hits being heard slightly too early?

But when does Skullgirls for Linux in Steam released?

not buy for fear of not being true or give up port

I can't wait for this - I have it on my Sony PlayStation 3, but I never backed it on Kickstarter because it wasn't until the campaign was over that I even knew it was coming to Linux-based operating systems!

Since I've found that out however, this has been sitting on my "wish" list and I have been impatiently waiting for its release...

There's not many games will I insist on paying full-price for, given Steam offers so many discounts, but this is one such game I will (pay full price for).

Still excited despite the drama that happened. I'm just glad it's still happening because if there is a good fighting game that will ever come to Linux, it will be Skullgirls. I was hoping Mortal Kombat X would be coming (since Warner Bros seems to be port outsourcing on some titles), but I'm not sure I would want that game from all the negative reception (microtransaction content) and poor performance it had on release for the Windows version. While I have Skullgirls, I have yet to get the DLC characters (and future ones), so I will buy that to celebrate the port release.

There are still some issues with the audio that need to be fixed for the port. We're aware of them, and they won't sound off the way they do in the vid here. It's just intended as a work-in-progress video so the people who've been patiently waiting for the port can have some sort of update and keep up hope!

I took the video. I can also confirm the sound setup on my G55VW is a bit, er, weird.

Hopefully, when Skullgirls is finally released for Linux-based operating systems, it's not one of those "give and forget" cases... With a little luck, the developers will continue to maintain Skullgirls for Linux-based operating systems alongside the same game for other operating systems.

Though in saying that, it is reassuring to see that the developers have learnt from their mistakes and are seemingly trying their hardest to appease the Linux Community...

Thanks for the explainations. As I never played Skullgirls, I was a bit afraid that it was an issue with the original game (and so maybe a kind of cheap/lame fighting game).

Looking forward to it.

Thanks for the update.

I just hope that my arcade stick also works on Linux. Otherwise I have to buy a new one. Does anyone have experience with arcade sticks on Linux?
