Curious Expedition 2 developer is not sure about support for Linux with Windows PC. According to feedback from Maschinen-Mensch. Which is now available via Steam Early Access.
Maschinen-Mensch are eager to invite brave explorers. So you can discover the brand new world of Curious Expedition 2 on Steam Early Access. The short Early Access will allow adventure seekers to help shape the game. Which is due to run until the official launch in Fall 2020.
Curious Expedition 2 has been in closed alpha for the past six months. While gaining support from over 2000 players providing feedback through the official Discord server. The Early Access state also allows players to provide feedback and support. Helping shape development until the full release this fall.
Likewise, the FAQ for the game highlights Linux and Mac support. Stating there will be “updates about Mac and Linux support once we get closer to the final release date.” This is a good sign, but I also reached out to the developer previously. Replying with “we’re not sure Linux will be supported.” Which leaves me to believe the studio is focusing on Wishlist support. Possibly even purchases, despite the lack of feedback on ProtonDB. But even though the developer is not sure about support. I can confirm, Steam Play support does work very well.
