Dragon Audit point and click style adventure is headed to Windows PC, but we have details for Linux support. Thanks to developer Archive Entertainment who also releases a new trailer. The games listed on Steam, so make sure to Wishlist.
Dragon Audit is point and click style adventure. Featuring anime-inspired 3D visuals and modern controller-friendly input. But the game seems like a visual novel. Which I know some of the Linux community is into.
So naturally, I had to reach out to Archive Entertainment. Seeing the games release is still showing “soon”. But in contrast, the reply below is a bit of a surprise.
- Particularly what game engine is being used for Dragon Audit?
We are using Unity, currently version 2018LTS
- Can we expect to see a Linux port?
Good question! I’m an avid Ubuntu user myself (previously Debian & Gentoo also). So I’d very much like to support a Linux release in future. However, so far we only have one Linux wishlist on Steam. So it’s not something I can commit to (yet!).
Due to being somewhat rare, coming across a fellow Linux user and developer. It’s impressive to see native support also in consideration. But the lack of Wishlist support is where it all gets hung up.
Most noteworthy, Archive Entertainment is rather open and upfront about development. You can check out the roadmap Statis Here. Then see what’s coming up next.
Dragon Audit – Announcement Trailer
In a world teeming with magic and danger. A city of accountants exists which has sequestered itself behind high walls. While using generally unacceptable accounting principles. A battle accountant there, George, gets an unenviable task. Since he must leave the safety of the city in order to storm a nearby castle. Then slay the dragon and rescue the princess. And most importantly, rescue the unpaid tax revenue in Dragon Audit.
Meanwhile, Ayraw (the dragon), is tired of knights showing up to slay her. She is also is a bit jealous, no one ever wants to rescue her. So she forms a plan to trick George into rescuing her. Instead of rescuing the princess. Hijinks ensue as the two team up. Now the unlikely duo slowly growing closer through their shared adventure.
“In the spirit of classic adventure games, Dragon Audit combines lighthearted humor with the undertones of a serious story. You’ll get to meet a cast of quirky characters, solve puzzles, find all sorts of jokes in the interactable 3D environment, and explore the backstories of our two protagonists,” said Robby Zinchak, the writer and director of the project.
An early, work-in-progress version of Dragon Audit is now available. Keeping mind it’s only available on Windows PC at the game’s website. Which should work just fine using Wine.
While in development, the game is available for Windows PC, priced at $9.99 USD. With a bundle including planned bonus content available for $14.99 USD. When fully complete, the game is planned to be released on Steam.
So if you want to see a Linux release. Make sure to Wishlist the game on Steam.
