Crumbling World is a brand new action RPG coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to confirmation from developer Dume Arts. Due to release on Steam in the new year.
Crumbling World is announced with a brand new free alpha demo. Which works via Wine on Linux. But there are also some rendering issues with the Itch build. So I cheated and used Crossover. Which works. Therefore, my suggestion, use PlayOnLinux to run the games .exe file. Which should give you a chance to dive into the rich fantasy. And also explore some early levels. So take note of the “control” settings.
Players can gain instant free access to the Crumbling World alpha via the game’s website. Since this sets the scene for the dark fantasy action RPG. Due to release next year on Windows PC and Mac. But after a brief Twitter exchange, Linux too.
Hi! Yes I guess I can build a Linux version… ?

Crumbling World takes place in an evil, slowly decomposing land. As humanity is driven to corruption, aligning with dark forces for survival. So it’s up to you to make your way through each level. As you work to bring back the age of light. Just make sure to do so before the world crumbles beneath their feet.
In this early alpha demo. You will make your way through number of the procedurally generated stages. These are all taken from the opening of the game. Where you take control of Mathos, the Knight. Just one of the five classes available when the game launches in 2020. And also… be sure to watch your step.
