Light Fall 2D platformer no native support, yet

light fall 2d platformer no linux games support yet just windows and mac

Light Fall 2D platformer will release March 2018 on Steam for Windows and Mac, but no Linux support. Since we reached out to developer Bishop Games we do have some clarification about the release.

Linux support:

“Nothing new for Linux yet. It will most definitely stay this way until release. As for the exact date of March, an announcement will be made soon.

We are strongly interested in a Linux version, but the truth is that with our limited manpower it won’t happen at launch.”

So this is not an uncommon issue. Mind you the developers do outline that small development team. So keeping launch issue minimized will be the focus. And we also do not have an official release date yet. But the Linux release is coming. That much we do have confirmation for. So we’re excited to hopefully get into some gameplay soon.

Light Fall is one of the most anticipated indie games of the year. Since the game features a unique game mechanic. Also compelling storyline and beautiful art style.
Light Fall has earned multiple industry accolades. Including winning Best Hardcore Game at the Game Connection Development Awards. This was at Game Connection Europe 2017 during Paris Game Week.

Light Fall Features:

  • The Ultimate Freedom: Control the Shadow Core and use it the way you see fit to face the challenges of the game. You can spawn this magical box beneath your feet to propel yourself into the air and move across the land at your own pace. With the Shadow Core, you become the master of your surroundings and create your own path.
  • An Immersive Journey: Load up Light Fall and immerse yourself in this strange universe where darkness prevails over the light. Joining you in this adventure, Stryx the old and grumpy owl, will act as your sidekick and in-game narrator. Depending on his mood, he will either offer useful advice or bluntly mock your failures.
  • A Vast World to Explore: With the Shadow Core in hand, reach new heights and explore every nook and cranny of Numbra. Wander through the Lunar Plain, the Marshlands of Sorrows, the Vipera’s Forest and the Unknown Depths, where shortcuts, alternative paths, hidden collectibles and easter eggs await you in large numbers.

Developed by Canadian indie studio Bishop Games, Light Fall is a one-of-a-kind platformer that utilizes the innovative Shadow Core, a magical box beneath your feet that can be used to propel yourself in the air, effectively making the game a platformer in which you control the platform. Are you ready to leverage the power of the Shadow Core and create your own path in the mysterious, forgotten world of Numbra?

Steam release:

Light Fall will be releasing this month on Steam for Windows and Mac, but NO Linux support. And we still do not have a release price or a specific date. So more details to come, stay tuned.
