The Adventure Pals action RPG platformer is on Mac and Windows, but a Linux release? Well according to independent developer Massive Monster and Armor Games Studios. This action-adventure with local co-op and RPG elements is available now for $14.99 USD. So what’s going on with this Unity 3D release? Why no Linux?
“We do not currently have plans for a Linux port, though that may change if there is sufficient success and demand.”
Since this message comes directly from the producer, it’s interesting. Which seems to be another situation where initial sales and demand determine Linux support. Which is not completely surprising. Seeing other developers do the same thing. Usually with some form of Early Access, then a full release.
Since this is clearly not a no. Check out the Discussion post that is already started. So get int there and show that Tux Love.
