Chrono Sword souls-like action seeks funding on Kickstarter for Windows PC, along with Linux and Mac. Thanks to developer Game Round.Inc. The crowdfunding campaign is now underway. Already 65% funded with 24 days left to go.
The Chrono Sword is due to raise $50,000 USD by December 10th, 2020. And so far the campaign is doing rather well.
Chrono Sword is a pixel art action adventure game. Coming with an incredible atmosphere, deep combat, and an epic story. Players will take on the role of Aenor – a time traveler. Who will travel the past and the present of the fallen world.
The world, all the characters, and effects are painted as gorgeous pixel art with dynamic lighting. So that every character animation is fluid in every direction. And the orchestral soundtracks let you immerse into the souls-like action gameplay.
Naturally, we also had to reach out regarding Linux support. Here’s the developer’s reply.
Hi, we are using Unity as engine, we plan to release the game on as many platforms as possible.
Right now the Chrono Sword developers are holding off on Linux and Mac support during the Kickstarter. Since they are keeping fully focused on the Windows PC and console ports. They also stated, “the game is planned to be released on Nov 2021. We have plenty of time to think about this.”
Therefore, this is not a full out confirmation. But it certainly looks likely that a Linux and Mac port will be on the way.
