Join us on the Linux Gaming community on Lemmy, the federated open source alternative to Reddit.

Developed by Foam Sword and publisher Double Fine Presents, the hand-painted action-adventure Knights And Bikes is releasing soon. Confirmed on Twitter by both the developer and publisher, the August 27th release will indeed come with Linux support on the same day.

Featuring gameplay for 1-2 players, it takes place in the 1980s on a fictional British island called Penfurzy. You'll be exploring on your customizable bikes while dealing with puzzles and enemies using improvised tools like frisbees, water-balloons, puddle-stomping welly boots, and a powerful boom-box stereo. Sounds like it could be pretty sweet!

Another we've been waiting on for some time, after having a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2016 where Foam Sword managed to get over £126K in funding. Not one I've followed too closely, but it's good to see a release approaching. It was also missed from our dedicated Crowdfunding Page, so it has been added.

You can wishlist/follow Knights And Bikes on GOG and Steam.

Are they pushing all the channels on that boom box's equalizer all the way up (0:21)? Weird what kids like these days.

My bad but am still sceptical whenever i see confirmed as coming to linux until you know its out because we are still waiting for Witcher 3, Street Fighter 5, Carmageddon, Phoenix point ( i know they cancelled it outright but it was promised for over a year) Batman Arkham Knight and a laundry list of games promised yet never delivered.

While I am hugely skeptical these days, too: Given how close the release date is...in this case I guess they are pretty sure that they can deliver. I wouldn't worry about it.

They are releasing it on PS4, that is by far the largest enemy for games as far as Microsoft is concerned. So this tells us that MS might have bought Double Fine and is the one paying the checks but decisions are still made by Double Fine (not saying that it will stay this way forever).

I've played a couple of hours of the beta version on Linux, and they've put a lot of effort into it, so I feel confident that we will indeed see a same day release.
