children of morta rpg coming 2018 but no linux via steam games

11 bit studios is publishing Children of Morta, we are keen to the coming release. Hence the hack-and-slash roguelike from Dead Mage coming to Mac and Windows. Since the release is due to arrive in the 1st half of 2018. Yet this Unity 3D is not scheduled to be release on Linux, despite the Kickstarter.

11 bit studios and Linux support:

“The game is done in Unity but there won’t be Linux version, sadly.

Sadly, the sales are very poor, especially comparing to the amount of work that has to be put to make a game running on Linux.”

Since this statement comes directly from 11 bit Studios, we understand platform support. Yet over 80% of the Linux games on Steam are developed in Unity 3D. There is even a contrary comment or two via the Steam Discussions from the developer. Which means we have to upvote for native Linux support, for a Unity game?

Children of Morta Story

Corruption has spread, morphing the once peaceful mountain into a violent and monster-infested nightmare.
