BROK the InvestiGator classic adventure is now out on Kickstarter for Windows PC, but has plans for Linux gaming and Mac. Thanks to a developer statement from COWCAT. Which is now running a crowdfunding campaign and already passes the €12,000 funding goal.

BROK the InvestiGator blends a classic adventure (puzzles, inventory, narrative…) with elements from Beat ’em Ups and RPG Which is now at roughly €17,000 ($20,825 USD) at the time of writing. While the campaign boasts support for Windows PC right now, the Prologue is certainly playable.

The BROK the InvestiGator free prologue for this “Punch & Click” adventure game. Which also mixes in “Beat ’em up” has received a lot of praise (98% positive on Steam). So even using Proton, this is certainly a game you want to check out via Steam or GOG (Wine). Even controller support works well. So it’s definitey worth playing, and Free.

Linux Support:

As a solo developer, I can’t manage too many versions at the same time. Brok is a complex game and no matter the amount of testing performed, I expect players to report many bugs.
If I release the prologue on those systems now. Players will expect it to launch on those systems simultaneously. And that’s not something I can promise.
So I’ve decided for a trade-off. I’ll keep releasing on those systems, but only after the game is stable enough. So I don’t have to do many updates.

Since Linux support will not be a day one release for BROK the InvestiGator. You can expect a post launch debut (after December 2021). Which you can see the above statement in the campaigns FAQ. And if you play the Prologue, the campaign is worth supporting.

The whole game including story, characters, gameplay, everything has been built around this premise that you can progress in various ways. Will you choose to solve mysteries with your brain? Or, will you break your way through?


A deep and emotional story rich experience full of characters hailing back to classic 80s/90s cartoons.
BROK the InvestiGator is first game to combine a “Classic Adventure” with “Beat’em up”. And it does so with the following features.

  • Solve puzzles with your wits… or muscles!
  • Make choices impacting gameplay and/or story
  • Easy mode for pure “Point & Click” gameplay (fights can be skipped)
  • Level up to beat enemies and bosses
  • Combine clues to uncover the truth!
  • In-game hints
  • All controls supported (mouse, keyboard or controller)
  • Fully voice acted
  • 2 to 4 hours of gameplay for this prologue!

BROK the InvestiGator techncally, take it’s inspiration from 80’s/early 90’s cartoons. But with a much darker spin. Since gameplay takes place in a dystopian universe where animals replaced mankind. In this innovative adventure, where choices matter, you will you use your brain. Or maybe even your brawn, it depends how you play.

Therefore, now that you know something about BROK the InvestiGator. Check out the Prologue in the links above. The crowdfunding campaign technically has support for Linux gaming, Mac and Windows PC. So check it out.
