Driftland: The Magic Revival now on Steam

driftland: the magic revival now on steam for windows but coming to linux ubuntu games 2017

Driftland: The Magic Revival is now on Steam Early Access for Windows. The games also coming to Linux and Ubuntu but later.
So now, it’s time to become a Mage Overlord. Keeping hold of the castle, tower and a small realm on one of the islands.

Linux release:

“Steam early access will be most likely only for the Windows platform. Final game will be released around Q3 2k18 for Windows, followed by Linux, Ubuntu and Mac.”

So the only deprecated issue with this, the games time in Early Access. Driftland: The Magic Revival will be in Early Access from 6 to 12 months. While that 6 months is the time to complete the game development. Since this depends on the player feedback. This could impact on the decision to move to the final version of the game. So that time may be reasonably longer. Which could mean a delay for the Steam release on Linux, Ubuntu and Mac. Possibly.

What is Driftland: The Magic Revival?

The games design has the player using unique powers to explore. Since this is a procedurally generated world after all. So you have to connect floating islands with one goal in mind. Expanding your great kingdom.

After a devastating war between ancient mages, a powerful spell is all that holds the shattered planet of Driftland together. Faced with the destruction of all life on the planet, including their entire civilization, the warring factions called a truce and tried to repair the damage – but it was already too late. Using all of their remaining magical powers to cast a powerful spell they were able to keep their world in relative balance.

Many dark times passed, but when all seemed utterly lost a fresh ray of hope emerged: new sources of magic appeared, and new mages were born across the planet. Now, as the dormant conflicts once again surface. These new powers will determine whether Driftland will come back to its former glory. Or the removal from the cosmos entirely.

“Working on a game we always wanted to play is a dream coming true”, says Michał Sokolski, Star Drifters CEO. “As developers and avid gamers. We realize how high we’ve raised the bar for ourselves. And how high the expectations of fans of RTS games are. Driftland: The Magic Revival is a combination of fresh ideas and unique mechanics. But our community’s feedback always comes first for us. We believe that we’ll reach the highest level of quality with the help of 4X and RTS genre enthusiasts. For an indie studio like ours. The community’s feedback is the most valuable. So join us and help make this truly unique strategy game!”
