Curse of the Dead Gods roguelite action and Linux support along with Windows PC. Thanks to feedback from developer Passtech Games. The release is now live on Humble Store and Steam Early Access.
Curse of the Dead Gods will have you try and survive divine powers. And also face your own greed in the new action roguelike. Thanks to publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Passtech Games. And naturally, we reached out to the developer regarding Linux. Actually this reply is from early February.
The game is using a homemade engine called OEngine.
We are focusing the Early Access release on Windows PC. But after that, we’ll focus on consoles depending on how well the game does on Steam. We are not ruling out Linux or Mac support though.
Since this is not a confirmation for Curse of the Dead Gods. Development is obviously going to focus on Windows PC for Early Access. But after that, around the end of 2020, then we can hope for Linux support. And yes, the OEngine does have Linux support.
Also, as a Plan B, try using Proton for now. Gameplay should work at a Gold or Platinum level depending on your hardware.
