Len’s Island action adventure doing well on Kickstarter but the dev talks support for Linux along with Mac and Windows PC. Thanks to independent developer Flow Studio. The crowdfunding campaign has reaching their funding goal. Crossing the $33,400 AUD goal in only eight days. Now with 17 days left to go.
Len’s Island, the studio’s debut title. Also a third person action adventure focused around building, farming, exploration and dungeon battles. Which is doing well on Kickstarter. Due to launch in March 2021.
The team is now looking to reach the goal of $38,000 AUD goal. So they can unlock their first stretch goal. Which will introduce pets to the game. Pet’s will mostly be airborne within Len’s Island. The current wishlist of pets is Parrots, Flying Squirrels, Fireflies and Bees. With opportunities for the community to decide what extra pets will be added into the game. Some of the pets are certainly there to just stare at how cute they are. Some will help light up the dark areas in the caves for you. Or even sting your enemies.
The dev talks support for Linux
We currently won’t be offering a Linux build at launch. Although Linux support is in the pipeline. And we plan to release a Linux version of Len’s Island soon after launch in March.
We have already received a lot of support from the Linux community. I’d love to get the game out there for the community to play as soon as possible.
The reply from Flow Studio is positive. The game engine of course is Unity 3D. So right now, the focus is on development and funding Len’s Island. Even though this will not be a day one release for Linux. The fact that support is in the pipeline is a pleasure. Which also opens up the opportunity for the community to back the campaign.
