Heat Guardian top-down shooter native release

heat guardian top down shooter linux windows release in game

Heat Guardian is a hardcore top down shooter set in a freezing world coming to Windows and Mac, as well as Linux via Steam. We reached out for details and a Linux build is confirmed.

Linux release:

“Currently the game’s developer [Denis Rudoy]is trying everything he can to finish the Linux version before the game’s launch. So I hope it’ll be available on May 10 alongside Windows version. If not – it’ll be a matter of days after the release.

Linux support will be implemented soon after the release.”

So this is definitely some positive news. Since gameplay looks rather impressive. Challenging yet giving off that Fallout vibe. But singleplayer only.

While gameplay will have players travelling through the dying lands. Working to find the one last stronghold of humanity. And also trying your best to stay alive.
Deadly mutants, limited resources and even the world itself make this journey a trial. So only the most skilled survivors can endure. In this grim place there is no easy way – prepare to fight for your life.

Our world is dead. What’s left of humanity is all over the ruins of civilization taken by the endless winter. Mutants are the new dominant species. So they hunt down everyone unlucky enough to survive the apocalypse. And you are one of those who keep fighting for their lives amidst all the horror.

Surviving is a skill to master in Heat Guardian. Your foes are lethal and your ammo is scarce. On top of that you can’t escape the main enemy – it’s in the air you breathe. Cold rules everything around and surviving means staying warm. Fail – and you’ll freeze to death.

Heat Guardian is solo-development is by Denis Rudoy from Kyiv, Ukraine, his first game ever.

  • Surviving the endless winter. Keep yourself warm and count your ammo to stay alive in this harsh new world.
  • Post-Soviet aesthetic. Heat Guardian takes place on the ruins of Eastern Europe.
  • Tools of survival. More than 50 weapon types and tools to help you in your path.
  • Fight-till-you-die mode. Additional game mode for the diehards – how long can you last against endless waves of enemies?
