Hot Shot Burn support for the hilarious brawler

hot shot burn game support for the hilariously brawler on linux windows pc

Hot Shot Burn violent yet hilarious brawler party game release Windows PC, but we have support details for Linux. Thanks to developer Flaming Flamingo. Who just launched the game on Early Access.

Hot Shot Burn just released on Steam Early Access. The games already getting positive feedback. And even on Linux, we have Platinum support via Proton too. So good news all around, right? Well a native release would be far better. The reply from developer Flaming Flamingo feels likewise.

Linux Support:

We’re using Unity for development of Hot Shot Burn. Since it’s a party game you’re supposed to play with friends. That’s why we’re working on crossplay too. So no matter what kind of system they own. They should be able to play together with you.

We would love to support Linux natively and we probably will. But we’re a small team and right now our focus goes into console development. But we’re aiming to release the game on as many platforms as we can.

Since this is probably the best reply you can ask for. Hot Shot Burn will get a native Linux release. But this will be after the console ports. As stated above. But what gets me is how Flaming Flamingo are planning crossplay. And as a result, this caught me off guard.
But there is also a catch, the console release is scheduled for early 2020.

The developers also pointed out Proton. Stating, “as far as I know you can launch it with Proton.” And with Platform support, the game is definitely playable on Linux.
