Forest Grove first person mystery to test support in Linux gaming and Windows PC. Thanks to a developer reply from Miga. Due to make its way onto Steam in August 2021.
Forest Grove is a first person mystery game where you uncover forensic clues. This also means solving puzzles and piecing together a story using your own conclusions. Will you be able to solve the case?
After leaving a Discussions comment on the Forest Grove forum. Here is what the developer has to say about support in Linux gaming.
We’re currently focused on wrapping up development for the PC right now. But if we have enough time in the coming weeks to get a proper Linux environment set up to build and test on. Then absolutely we’d love to support Linux.
Since the game is in testing, it’s a pleasure to see that Miga are eager to work on support. While the gameplay itself is more unique and would likely fit nicely within the Linux community. And according to IndieDB, it looks like the game engine is Unity 3D. Which should make porting straight foward.
