Deep Sky Derelicts full release is coming and we have an update for Linux. Since the game itself just received an update. Which inspired an email from 1C and developer Snowhound Games.
So we are proud to announce that Deep Sky Derelicts will debut on Linux soon. Here’s the email reply…
“For the time being it seems that the Linux native support will be at full release of the game in May. If things go smoothly with the other updates before the full release then who knows maybe we can squeeze it in sooner.”
While Snowhound Games already pointed out they will bring the Unity 3D game to Mac and Linux back in the fall. We were hoping to see a Linux port before the end of Early Access. But it looks like we’ll have to wait until May, alas
Deep Sky Derelicts is an original combination of turn-based strategy and RPG. Also featuring tactical card combat and popular rogue-like elements. Their recent illustrious update as part of its Early Access journey toward full release. Eager scavengers supporting the project can now enjoy and take advantage of loads of new content. The universe of Deep Sky Derelicts has just been expanded by lightyears. Stretching average game duration to nearly double what it was before.
New updates will continue to be delivered every month according to the current roadmap, together with more frequent fixes, until the full release of Deep Sky Derelicts on 31 May 2018.
