Off Grid gives you data as your weapon in this stealth hacking game, now crowdfunding with Linux support
13 October 2018 at 8:18 am UTC Likes: 1

I think I put a "No" on all of the games that have been released, even if a Linux version might be released later. Moonman/MoonQuest will almost certainly get a Linux release, but it's a "No" so far in my document. Adventure Pals I'm not so sure about, though it would be a huge disappointment for me personally. Their artist really wants to get it out, but their programmer is apparently too busy.

If anyone's interested in some more data, here's a list of my backed projects:

The current "success rate" for me is 84%.

I'll try to get the games added to the wiki page.

Surreal puzzle adventure 'The Gardens Between' releasing September 20th, art looks amazing

drvictor666Very promising! Perhaps something to play with kids after Candle and Figment.

If the common denominator is puzzler with striking visuals, I'd also add Hue, Never Alone and Pavilion to that list.

I never actually finished Candle, as I rage quit on the final puzzle. Overall, a very good game, but some of the puzzles were definitely more frustrating than fun to me.

Feral Interactive are teasing a brand new native Linux port

BrisseDon't quote me on this, but I believe I've read on Feral's Twitter that if you buy a game that was announced but not released by Feral, and you do it from a Linux-machine, they still get their cut, as long as you avoid playing it on a Windows-machine within the first two weeks.

I remember the same! That would make one interesting question...

What I'm curious to know is if you buy it now and play using Proton, does Feral still get their cut? Someone should ask on their Twitter, but I don't have a Twitter-account

Yes, the platform you play it more on in the two weeks following the purchase determine the platform that it's counted at. Proton is counted as Linux. This has been stated many times before, and repeated by the Great Liam Himself in the two [bottom] proton articles lately. (a permalink to article updates would be nice, Liam)

The real question here is rather: does the Feral radar count as an official announcement?

I'm pretty sure this is not the case, and is only relevant for which platform the purchase is counted for in the platform statistics. For Feral to get their cut of your purchase, you need to buy or pre-order from the Feral store directly, or buy on Steam after the Linux version has been released.

Here's a couple of tweets to support this:

Quote[...] Just pre-order the game from the Feral Store [or] just buy the game on Steam and install the Linux version once it's released.

Quote[...] Ideally, please wait for the Linux release before you buy or play.

Detective adventure 'Lamplight City' is confirmed to be coming to Linux

EikeCool! We can put Application Systems Heidelberg (Nelly Cootalot, Unforeseen Incidents) on our list of Linux-friendly publishers, I guess. Wishlisted.

I helped beta test Nelly Cootalot before the Linux release, and the developers I was in touch with were both very friendly and eager to make the game work smoothly on Linux. If I remember correctly, this was around the time that Unity had a bug that would sometimes make it crash while trying to determine the supported version of OpenGL.

Rakuen is very good. One of the few games I played to completion last year.

Beautiful point & click adventure 'Tala' that blends nature photography and animation will support Linux

Thanks for the tip! I've looked into Tala before, but it didn't look like it would come to Linux at the time, so this is a nice surprise.

Deep Sixed, the colourful & difficult space adventure sim to release earlier, now on Feb 12th

NotSoQTApparently this one was developed with Godot.

And one of the developers is a Linux user.

It's time to bug Feral Interactive about future port requests once again

I would love to see A Hat in Time or any of the LEGO games on Linux.
