essence atmospheric adventure makes a Linux debut on steam in gaming news

Now making gaming news, Essence finally makes it’s Linux debut. Hence this surreal non-violent first-person exploration adventure game. Which I have admit is quite amazing. Since #gameplay encompasses both #exploration and #puzzles. While now available across Mac, Windows AND Linux.

So developer ONEVISION GAMES have certainly put some time into creating a unique experience. Complete with thrilling adventures, inspiring landscapes, another dimension and a secret. Where players uncover the truth about the world of Essence. While being able to do so on Linux, thanks to the news in a recent Steam update. While Vulkan support is promised with the next update.


“Finally, after some more fixes, the Linux version is now ready and available through Steam.

We still expect some graphical bugs that could appear. If you encounter some please tell us about it, since our testing range for Linux is limited. We will be standing by to bring a possible hotfix if necessary.

While we wanted to bring you the new Vulkan API for Windows and Linux as well, to give especially Linux better performance, we have still some issues we simply could not fix to this point. So we will try our best to release the Vulkan support with the next major update.

We wish all Linux players fun exploring the worlds of Essence.”

So the player wakes with no memory or information. Including nothing about the world you are in. Since gaming is about exploring the majestic world, waiting for your return for so long. Where the player uncovers their own nature in an inspiring journey.

Therefore the player is tasked with finding abilities hidden in ancient structures. So even the structures challenge your mind with anomalous puzzles. While you wonder freely through these lands and beyond. Only to finally discover the truth, the past and the future you never believed would existed.

Essence currently available on Steam and Humble Store. Now fully cross-platform across Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
