After making a formal request via the Steam Discussions. We can now safely say that a port is in the works.
Quick update! Good news everyone!
We can now safely say that we are indeed working on a Linux port. It wont be available straight at launch however. But, we will try to have it out as soon as we can after.
I know, this is not be a day one release for Linux. Still it’s a pleasure to see a developed dedicated to issuing a native build, even post launch. However, I’m just hoping Allods Team Arcade keeps to their promise. Since I’d really like the mix of platforming with the metroidvania elements. And Linux does offer the more stable platform for, well, platformers.
Blast Brigade is being developed by a newly formed team within Allods Team. While focusing on pioneering games full of fresh ideas and concepts. Allods Team Arcade boasts young and ambitious development talent. All dedicated to exploring different genres.
Blast Brigade – Announcement Trailer
Inspired by popcorn action movies from the ’80s. This why Blast Brigade combines the bullet mayhem of run ‘n gun platformers with a deep, metroidvania style world exploration. Building with a team of four playable heroes with their own abilities. You can also switch characters on the go. Then of course upgrade weapons to face challenging bosses. All to prevent an empending doomsday.
Blast Brigade tells the story of a diverse group of special agents from across the globe. Here they unite against the evil genius Dr. Cread. A seemingly routine mission soon escalates into a mission to save the world. This sees the heroes working together to safeguard the ancient heritage of an island paradise.
The heroes will explore the remote island captured by the nefarious Dr. Cread. After many (failed) attempts at world domination, the doctor has now made his lair on the island paradise. All while enslaving its inhabitants to help him build his giant doomsday robot. The Blast Brigade will not only have to defeat the minions of Dr. Cread. But also master strange, ancient technology in their quest to save the world.
Four different playable characters during the course of the game:
- The American Jeff (J. Jefferson), who has never found a problem he can’t blast his way out of. Using his trusty grenade launcher, Jeff is an all-American hero who always charges into headlong confrontations with evil doers and villains.
- Soviet KGB Agent Alexandra “Shura” Voron infiltrates hostile territory with her grappling hook to take out enemies of the motherland with her sniper rifle. A master manipulator and infiltrator, Shura preferably works from the shadows to achieve her goals.
- The Scotsman Gavin Henry Gale or “Galahad” is a MI6 spy that was recently captured by Dr. Cread. After being subjected to horrible experiments at the hands of the Doctor, he managed to escape and now uses his cyborg body to wreak havoc on his foes.
- Holy Sentinel Vartaxaklahun “Vortex” Paqarnusta works with the Blast Brigade to help liberate her island from Dr. Cread. Wielding Chakrams in a spinning dance of death, Vortex also has rudimentary knowledge of the ancient technology of the island.
From Vortex’s holy chakram to Shura’s grappling hook. The various characters’ special abilities can be used to tackle each situation in a new and exciting way.
