alwa’s legacy metroidvania adventure game release delayed to q2 2020 for linux mac windows pc

Alwa’s Legacy metroidvania adventure game delayed until Q2 2020 for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to a recent update from developer Elden Pixels. Which was also going to release soon on Steam.

Alwa’s Legacy is a modern retro metroidvania adventure game. Also, the follow up to Alwa’s Awakening. Which was supposed to release in April. But according to a more recent Kickstarter update, the game is delayed.

  • Alwa’s Legacy is still on schedule to launch in Q2 of 2020 (not in April though). Once we’re 100% certain about a launch date we’ll announce it
  • Our goal is to launch on Switch and on Steam (PC, Mac and Linux). HOPEFULLY on the same day

So the positive news here, we can look forward to a same day Linux release. Although there is a “hopefully” in the statement. We know that Elden Pixels have that goal in mind.
But this delay is partially due to COVID-19 and getting things “manufactured”. Since the developer is conscious of the world crisis right now. Plus you have to give the dev’s props for holding off.
