Future Mirror adventure game release aims at the Linux Steam Deck via Windows PC. Due to the work and creativity of developer Satsuki no Yume. Working to make its way onto Steam this fall.
Mystery fantasy adventure game Future Mirror by Japanese indie game developer Satsuki no Yume will receive a western release in English. Doing so via publisher LocaGames, a company operated by Adventures, Inc. will offer release in November 2022. Future Mirror (Japanese title “Mirai Kagami”) was released earlier this year. And has also on to earn high praise from Japanese gamers with its engaging characters and gripping storyline.
So here’s what’s going on with Linux support for Future Mirror. When asked, via email, there are “no plans to make a native Linux build.”
However, in our internal testing of the game it runs fairly well using proton on the Steam Deck. And we will try our best to optimize the game for that within the limits of the engine.
Not exactly a native Linux port for Future Mirror, but still something. Since the Steam version will offer an after-story component. And also be available in Japanese and English.
Japanese players had this to say about the game (translated); “It’s a fun game that makes me want to play it again and again.” “I couldn’t stop playing the game because I was so excited to see what happened next.” “The story and characters are great.” “I enjoyed the comical and fast-paced dialogue.”
Future Mirror Trailer
Future Mirror follows Itsuki and Akane, two high school sophomores pondering their future. So they decide to try performing a spell that is supposed to allow them to see their futures ten years from now. Itsuki is skeptical and doesn’t believe it’s possible. While egged on by Akane, she performs the spell anyway.
That night as Itsuki falls asleep, she suddenly finds herself in a world ten years in the future. It’s also an unfamiliar place, handcuffed to a stranger, and surrounded by flames.
Itsuki wakes up from her dream and after meeting up at school the next day. Also receiving a shocking truth by Akane, “Ten years from now, I will be dead…” Is it really just a dream?
This is where Future Mirror gets interesting. Why is Akane dead?
Determined to find answers, Itsuki travels back and forth to the future in her dreams. While searching for a happy ending for herself and Akane.
Future Mirror combines traditional visual novel storytelling and player controlled exploration. Depending on the player’s actions, the story branches into four different endings. Escape the disastrous future you’ve learned about in your dreams and pursue a happy future. Due to make its way onto Steam in November 2022. Along with support for the Linux powered Steam Deck via Windows PC.
