Lost Ember is an animal switching adventure. Due to release on November 22nd for Windows PC. But we also reached out for details regarding a Linux support update. Since the last developer reply in the Steam Discussion is over 2 years old.
We are using the Unreal Engine 4.22. At the moment we are not supporting Linux. But this is definitely something we will look into after release. It should not be too hard to get it ported for Linux.
Since we are using some third party extensions. We need to check first if they support Linux.
This certainly explains the limited developer reply on Steam. But we have been reaching out for details for a while. So it’s a pleasure to finally have a solid answer. Likewise, Mooneye Studios are objective about Linux. Hence, “definitely something we will look into after release.”
That being said, it should be interesting to see how Lost Ember runs using Proton. This is usually a good sign of compatibility to come, although not 100%.
Lost Ember is a third person exploration adventure game. Where players take on a wolf who can inhabit all manner of animals. Along with their spirit companion. Players will be able to control over a dozen different creatures. Such as a hummingbird, a fish, a mountain goat and a parrot. Along the way, your spirit guide will narrate the tale. While explaining what happened to the lost human civilizations that once settled in these wild lands.
