HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed release is coming for Windows PC but so is Linux support. According to developer Digital Cybercherries. Since the games has solid following and a 90% Very Positive review rating. Still available right now with a discount on Humble Store. And still in Early Access on Steam.
HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed just received a huge update for their toy-based shooter. Which also happened just in time for Halloween. The Plague has players running for their little plastic lives. So the green fire still burns. Those who are contaminated with the plague, will find you. Unless you can outrun them.
Since you’re a small plastic soldier with a big mission. That mission? Construct turrets, build defenses, and protect the HYPER-CORE. Likewise, the biggest battles require the smallest soldiers. Even on Linux.
HYPERCHARGE: Unboxed runs on UE4. We do plan to support Linux, hopefully after full release. But this is all dependent on how well the game is received on Switch and Windows PC. We are releasing Unboxed on PC Q1 2020.
So back in January of 2019, the developer commented. Stating that “we’re hoping to add Linux support to the game. It’s looking likely.”
Therefore, given the popularity and the success of Early Access. The Linux port is “looking likely” indeed. Plus Digital Cybercherries seems to encourage the idea. Although not until full release.
They also mention Proton success in their email to me. Which holds solid Platinum support across the board.
