exception action platformer game seeks support for linux and windows pc

Exception is an action platformer for Windows PC, but we have details for Linux support. Reaching out to developer Traxmaster Software with some surprising news. The games Steam release is due to release on August 13th.

Exception is an action platformer set inside an elderly woman’s computer. Which has also been crippled by malware. You can see the Windows PC irony here.
So players must battle sneaky programs. While you take control back of her computer operating system. So naturally we want to see Linux dominate here.

Linux Support:

Exception is indeed a Unity title. The engine takes a lot of knocks but deep down inside it’s an amazing tool!
I’m really interested in releasing a Linux build in the future. But want to hold off until I’m 100% comfortable handling the support issues that would arise. As I’m sure you would agree, the Linux community deserves a first class product!

So this is some good news overall. Since Traxmaster Software want to take the time ensure a quality release. You would think game development has come along far enough. Especially since Exception is using Unity 3D. That Linux ports would be a given. But more and more developers are making the switch. While learning how to port their games with Unity 3D.
