Heroes Ravage announces the Kickstarter and the coming release for Windows, but also for Linux. We reached out to developer Pixel Dinos, who are just announcing the launch date for the crowdfunding campaign.
Heroes Ravage will start its Kickstarter campaign on January 15th. Since the games release is coming to Windows first, Linux is also in the mix.
“As for a Linux port we definitely want to expand to as much platforms as possible. However we want to provide the best possible experience to the players so we will release first only on PC. As we are a small team and we need to focus on one platform at a time.
With that said, we did run some tests with Linux and they were very positive. Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks.”
So this should make the Kickstarter interesting. I am keen to see if Linux will be included in the campaign. According to the statement above, it leads me to believe that support could be showing up as a stretch goal. But we won’t know until January 15th.
Heroes Ravage is a 4v4 multiplayer action game about Heroes with no remorse. While the villagers desperately try to protect their valuables through an all-out brawl of wits and might. So it’s up to players to secure all the loot, gameplay is like a blend of The Legend of Zelda and Rainbow Six Siege.
The game is a satire and a love letter to the old RPG genre. Where the heroes would enter every house in the game, stealing all the items from the starving inhabitants. Heroes Ravage gives the player control of both heroes and villagers to players. So that the player can either help the villagers protect their goods and get their long deserved payback. Or give in to the greed as a hero stealing and destroying everything from the villagers house once again.
