Guacamelee 2 native support is unsure

guacamelee 2 co op multiplayer metroidvania linux support unsure

Guacamelee 2 is a co-op-multiplayer Metroidvania action game coming to Windows, but what about Linux? At the time of emailing developer DrinkBox Studios with some feedback.

Linux Support:

“As for a linux port, it’s a bit early for us to say at the moment. The engine we use is an internal Drinkbox game engine.”

So clearly this does not indicate a release date or a common game engine. But the fact that DrinkBox Studios states the early development indicates that Linux is a consideration. As as likely expected, with such a small market share, demand from the community shows interest. While hopefully swaying the developers decision to port.

Therefore, a Steam Discussion thread is already active. So show that Tux Love and make sure to Wishlist.

Guacamelee 2 is the sequel to the award-winning, Mexican-themed co-op-multiplayer Metroidvania action game, Guacamelee!.

So now the studio is taking the time after finishing Guacamelee! to change gears. While percolating new ideas for a Guacamelee 2.
Now, DrinkBox is happily returning to their much loved franchise.

Guacamelee 2 – Steam Announce Trailer (Windows, hopefully Linux)

Guacamelee 2 brings luchador Juan Aguacate out of retirement for a new adventure. Since he must face his greatest challenge yet. One that also threatens to tear apart the very fabric of the Mexiverse.


  • Non-Stop fighting action featuring an extensive move list
  • Multi-dimensional Platforming
  • Combat moves double as player movement mechanics, uniting platforming and fighting
  • Amazing new player abilities: Eagle Boost, Chicken Glide, and many more non-bird-themed powers!
  • A colorfully vibrant world containing dingy swamps, abandoned temples, arid deserts, and many other fun locations
  • New rendering engine: Normal mapped characters and environments significantly enhance the game’s visuals
