First Class Trouble party game has a support update for Linux along with a Windows PC release. Thanks to the ongoing efforts of developer Invisible Walls. Which is now available as version 1.0 on Steam and Humble Store.

First Class Trouble is a social deduction party game. This is where six people play together aboard a luxury space cruiser. Four players will be Residents, working to try and to shut down a rogue A.I. at the heart of the ship. While the other two players will be Personoids, who will lie, deceive, and do whatever it takes to stop them.

First Class Trouble also supports cross play between Windows PC and PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. However, a Linux build is still missing. With version 1.0 now live, I reached out to Invisible Walls via email. This time their latest update shows an issue halting the native support.

The issue is only with the voice service we use in the game called Vivox. Vivox does not support Linux.
We have tried to push them to support Linux, and they are – by our understanding – considering it. But it is moving pretty slow.

We have considered “just commenting out” Vivox and leaving it up to players to figure out the voice element.

So this is the issue behind the lack of Linux support for First Class Trouble. Development is using Unreal Engine 4. Therefore a port should be straight forward. But in order to get a more accurate Vivox vote, I will advise the developer to issue a StrawPoll. Giving Linux users a choice, due to be presented on the Linux_gaming subreddit.

First Class Trouble – Official 1.0 Launch Trailer

In First Class Trouble expect chaotic shenanigans that typically ensue in a social deduction game. There are setting hazards, like blazing fires and electrical faults. Get too close to a live wire and you’ll feel the shocking results.

Unique to First Class Trouble, is that the game utilizes proximity-based voice chat (Vivox). Since this will elevate the social dynamics of actual conversations. Meaning friends will need to split off from the group to scheme and plot. Plus you can’t hear a victim’s cry for help if they’re too far from you. Friends will also need to work together with each other on different co-op tasks. While working through the maps and devise cunning strategies to eliminate one another. The varied map settings allow for hilarious moments. Players will be dumping each other out of airlocks. Maybe even electrocuting each other in spa pools. Locking each other into freezers and tossing bottles of alcohol at each other’s heads.

First Class Trouble and all of the games DLC’s are currently discounted on Steam. While Humble Store actually offers a bigger discount. Along with support for Windows PC, with Linux still being an option. Currently, the use of Proton ends in a “borked state.

Players can also stay up to date with all the latest updates and news via the games Discord channel.
