AWAY: The Survival Series adventure games is still hinting at support for Linux after Windows PC. Thanks to details from developer Breaking Walls. Due to make its way onto Steam next month.

Breaking Walls is proud to announce that its nature documentary inspired story adventure. The game is about the life of a sugar glider. AWAY: The Survival Series is due to launch digitally on September 28th for Windows PC. However, reaching out to Breaking Walls, it looks like they are still interested in Linux.

Linux support won’t be available at launch but it is still a possibility we are looking into after launch.

When previously asked about Linux support for AWAY: The Survival Series in October 2020:

We are considering a potential Linux port as well (our lead developer is a big Linux proponent)….

Developer Breaking Walls had roughly the same answer. Especially since Unreal Engine 4 is being used for development. It’s a pleasure to see we are very likely to have a post release Linux port. Since the lead developer is a big Linux supporter after all. Plus there is no developer feedback in the Discussion post.

AWAY: The Survival Series lets you star in your own personal nature documentary. All while you glide through the forest, sneak past predators, and hunt down your prey. The story narrator describes your every move. All taking place in a distant future where nature has reclaimed the planet. AWAY: The Survival Series is a stunning story driven survival adventure.
