9 Monkeys of Shaolin – Extended Gameplay Trailer
Furthermore, Sobaka Studio has launched the expanded free demo version of 9 Monkeys of Shaolin on Steam. Hence, the “Prologue”, which is also very playable on Linux using Proton. This is an Unreal Engine 4 title and runs well. Closing the game, it might hang. Which means manually ending task. But this new build certainly makes it worthy. Since players can experience all these features in a real combat. The complete first chapter of 9 Monkeys of Shaolin‘s campaign offers both single player and co-op. This includes both online or split-screen mode for 2 player options.
The game engine is Unreal Engine 4, and 9 Monkeys of Shaolin will definitely support Linux on Steam.
While this is good news, the Steam page still shows Windows PC only. Which may be a day one release, but here’s hoping. The Prologue is definitely worth playing to get a better feel for the game.
This release marks a true rebirth of the iconic beat ’em up genre. All in the vein of old school video games. If you had fun playing beat em up videogames for hours as a kid. Crushing foes left and right. Then this game from the creators of hardcore brawler REDEEMER is definitely worth playing.
Action-packed battles, user friendly controls and incredible atmosphere of great kung-fu movies of 70s – all this makes gameplay a perfect choice for every true fan of really hardcore brawlers.
