hopeless dregs turn based game wants support for linux gaming with windows pc

Hopeless Dregs turn based game wants support for Linux with Windows PC. Thanks to the creative efforts of developer Discrete Tense. Due to make its way on to Steam Early Access later this week.

Discrete Tense is happy to announce that their indie game Hopeless Dregs is coming to Steam. Yes, it’s excellent news and you can expect the release on April 9th via Early Access state. The Hopeless Dregs Early Access version contains a procedural map, 6 different character classes, and 18 unique abilities. There are also 37 items to find with 2 bosses to beat. Developer Discrete Tense is due to expand content even further with the help of the Steam community support.

Hopeless Dregs is just one of many games coming to Early Access. It’s a cost-effective title, but in my experience, it’s usually indie games that take the gameplay in a more unique direction.
That being said, the developers are aiming for Windows PC. Also, after emailing Discrete Tense about Linux support, they were quite receptive.

If we’ll see that people like playing the game. We’ll not only make Linux build, but also support new languages.

So a bit of backstory and to explain the email exchange. The release of Hopeless Dregs for Linux depends on the game’s Early Access debut. So as Early Access is progressing, there is positive feedback, the developer will issue a port. Since Unity 3D is being used for development, this should offer a further edge. Making the porting process that much easier.
That being said, I’ve also created a Steam Discussion post. So you can help out and share your Tux Love or +1. But check out the trailer below.
