Last Days of Lazarus first person adventure looks promising for the Windows PC release and Linux too. Thanks to independent developer Darkania Works and publisher GrimTalin. The game has just been announced for Steam in 2021.
Last Days of Lazarus is a new horror game coming to Steam. Which is also the vision of George Remus, Darkania Works. Who is thewriter and artist behind the critically acclaimed Gray Dawn (84% positive reviews on Steam). But only has a Windows PC release, with somewhat decent support via Proton.
Taking place in a post soviet Eastern Europe. Last Days of Lazarus tells the story of a troubled man returning to his childhood home. Doing so after his mother’s death. While hoping to spend some time with his sister, Lyudmila. But as the country around him starts to fall apart, so does reality itself. And as a result, there are a series of unexplainable events of Last Days of Lazarus. These that lead him on a quest. Hopefully letting him find out more about his family’s disturbing past.
I’m using Unreal Engine 4 to develop the game. At the moment I’m working for the Windows version. I don’t know how difficult it is to release it on Linux. But I’ll certainly take a look after the launch.
Since Darkania Works is a one man studio. Prioritizing work and keeping focused on one platform until the 2021 release. But it would certainly be impressive to see the studio supporting the Linux community. Although it seems there is quite a lot riding on the games release. The use of Unreal Engine 4 should make porting easier.

As the story unravels, you’ll meet questionable characters. Who also have a corrupt version of the truth that may be difficult to figure out. With a troubling past yourself, you’ll struggle not only with solving the mysteries laid upon you. But also with keeping any sliver of hope for rescue alive.
