BROK the InvestiGator will be coming soon to Kickstarter in Linux gaming and Windows. According to French developer and publisher COWCAT. Who not only announce their crowdfunding plans. But also the playable Prologue on Steam and GOG.
One of COWCAT’s most ambitious project to date. BROK the InvestiGator – the first ever “Classic adventure” mixed with “Beat ’em up”. Which is hailed as a story driven game that blends action and investigation. But doing so in never before seen ways. Letting you use your brain or brawn.
Reaching out to COWCAT regarding the upcoming BROK the InvestiGator Kickstarter. They are also planning to support Linux gaming in the future.
Yes I intend to release on Linux eventually. But only after the full version is released. Because I don’t want to maintain many versions so I’ll wait until the game is stable enough.
There has to be a kudos given for honesty. Especially with the Kickstarter campaign right around the corner. Maintaining multiple platform versions while the game is in development is tough for any developer.
That being said, the full release is due to arrive in Winter 2021. Development is using GameMaker Studio. Which makes porting to Linux easier. Although, sometimes support targets certain distro’s.
But due note, the BROK the InvestiGator – Prologue is certainly playable via Proton 5.13-2. Launching and getting into a new game is smoother than expected. That and controller support integrates nicely. The ONLY thing that you might notice is a bit of audio clicking in the game menu. Otherwise, this is a great Prologue. Giving players a taste of the games first Chapter.
Brok the InvestiGator – Announcement Trailer
