Core Keeper mining sandbox adventure in testing via Linux gaming with Windows PC. Thanks to details from developer Pugstorm and pubisher Sold Out. Who are also eager to announce the game for Steam.

Core Keeper a new mining sandbox adventure coming to Steam Early Access later this year. Where your character is drawn towards a mysterious relic. Therefore, it’s up to you, as an explorer, that awakens in an ancient cavern. One that is also full of creatures, resources, and trinkets. Mine relics and resources to build your base. While you craft new equipment, survive, and power up the Core. Defeat giant monsters, discover hidden secrets, and farm crops. Then cook up new recipes and explore a procedurally generated underground world. All in a mining sandbox adventure for 1-8 players.

According to the em>Core Keeper Discussions post, it looks like “other platforms” are in testing.

We are aiming at developing for windows for now. But we have started doing testing within the team for adding support for other platforms.

Since most developers enter Early Access with Windows PC support. It looks as though those other platforms include Linux gaming. Of course, this does not guarantee day one support. But would appear that Pugstorm has plans for Linux.
