Luna and the Moonling finally get a Linux release on Steam. The games also the creation of Greyborn Studios, who have announce the debut adventure puzzle games. Previously releasing for Mac and Windows via Steam.
“Hey Todd, we think we now have a working Linux build! Please try updating to the latest beta build and let us know if it works for you and how it performs.”
So yes the Linux build does work, as does the controller integration. Which is impressive. I have been working with the studio to test the native build via Steam. Without going into too much details, there was an issue where the games launcher looked for the exe file. But now Greyborn Studios have everything working. And what surprises me is how well the PS4 controller works.
Since the studio has a treat for native gamers this Halloween. They can now join in on the fun! A game that also takes inspiration from some of the greatest adventure puzzle classics of the past. Which as stating above had a release last month on Steam for Mac and Windows.
