Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare which we introduced last month is on Early Access, but no Linux support. Since the game engine of choice is Unity 3D, one would expect native support. Well we just received an email from developer KK Game Studio.
So first off, for those who do not know. Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare is a single-player game which features a unique combination of gameplay. Which is a mix of tactical first-person shooter and strategy game. Players also assume the role of a commander and raise money, build an army, engage the enemies in field combat. Attacking hostile territories and defending currently held ones. Ideally to dominate the world.
Linux support update:
“We would like to add Linux port, but not sure about that yet, as now we are more focused on making the game more complete and fixing bugs.”
Since this is solid feedback. But we do not have a solid release time frame. And the development team are working on completing the game and bugs. Which is someone common for Early Access releases. Those that can support Linux but do not. Keeping platform support minimal and also more focus on development itself.
So this means we might have to wait until closer to the full release. Even thought the games already getting Very Positive reviews on Steam. Which would be the most opportunistic time, from a marketing perspective. So share that Tux Love.
