Baron: Fur is Gonna Fly the action game will release for Windows PC but has attention on Linux. Thanks to the creativity of the two person development team, Dogmelon Games. Coming to Steam this March.

Fight for the skies against up to seven other players. While using gatling guns, freeze rays and anvils. So you can take out rival pilots. All while the wind blows through your fur, feathers or scales. Spin, dive and loop through cascades of bullets. Since you want to avoid severely crashing to the ground. And hopefully, become ruler of the skies.

Baron: Fur is Gonna Fly the high flying party showdown from Dogmelon Games. Which will barrel roll onto Steam, March 4, 2020. Due to release on Windows PC, but there is Linux interest as well.

Linux Support

Theoretically, most of the game should port well to Linux. It’s our own engine, and consequently it’s very simple and doesn’t contain anything we don’t need – very lightweight. It’s written in C++ and Lua, builds with GNU makefiles. It has an OpenGL renderer which we use on Switch.
We also have a strong regard for Linux. Our issue, as always, is resources.

Does this mean we will have a day-one Linux release? That will depend on development going forward. Since the duo are developing Baron: Fur is Gonna Fly with their own game engine. And while confident in the port, there are “probably a few other things would need some work.” Yet this comes down to the mentioned resources. And the dev team may be looking for another developer to help port the game. Since they are eager to “pay our respects to the Linux community.” So be sure to Wishlist on Steam.

Responding to the call to arms. Animals have taken to the skies. Sporting cutting edge early 20th century aviation technology – biplanes. Fulfill their solemn duty by taking each other down. While you battle it out in wacky Baron: Fur is Gonna Fly combat. And bring glory to your species in literal aerial dogfights. Choose between eight cartoony critters. Such as Baron von Fluffe-Botte, a high-flying sausage dog. Colonel Hock, a motherly pig following her dreams of flight. These heroes each come with their own style. Including their own voice and old-timey victory theme.

Baron: Fur Is Gonna Fly Official Trailer

Looking fly in styles of the period choose from four, semi-historically accurate aircraft. Each has its own stats balancing weight, handling, speed and armor. Empowering ace-pilots or budding flyers. Above all, select the perfect plane for their aerial antics. Further customization comes from upgrading the biplanes stats between rounds. So things like changing up equipped special weapons.

While the aircraft may be historically accurate, animal pilots excluded. The weapons in Baron: Fur Is Gonna Fly are hilariously not. If the basic barrage of bullets isn’t enough. Equip one of more than 13 outlandish weapons. Blow other critters out of the sky. Get explosive with the colourful Balloon Bomb. Maybe spew forth hot victory with the Flamethrower. Or simply repulse away the competition with the Stinky Fish. Crashing is only a minor setback. Since pilots return to the sky mere moments after their defeat. Then continue the aerial hijinks.

The variety of multiplayer and singleplayer modes might call for a bigger couch. Create an alliance to take down agile foes in team co-op. Or embrace aerial chaos with in free-for-all. Solo ace-pilots can hone their skills in training mode. Or compete to get the highest score in Sheep Attack by rounding up flying sheep. Putting an end to their aerial menace.

Baron: Fur is Gonna Fly will release for $20 USD. Coming to Steam for Windows PC. And hopefully Linux as well. Languages include English, Chinese and Japanese for Steam. With more to be added post launch.
