Man of Honor release of the violent arcade shooter with a top-down play style for Mac and Windows games, but what about Linux?
We reached out to developer Simbryo to inquire about Linux support on Steam. Here’s the reply:
“We are planning on releasing a Linux port of the game after we do more testing. Unfortunately we don’t have an official release date yet but we’ll let you know when we have more info.”
Since Man of Honor is using Unity 3D for the games development. A native release should be a given. However, this seems to be one of those games where the developers are equating the Linux release. As in getting enough sales and of course demand from the community. While the latter is non-existent, gameplay does reflex Hotline Miami 2 and Jydge.
Man of Honor is an experiment in character-centric design. Since the character of its protagonist, Emilio Gallo, inspires the game mechanics. All from the smallest detail to the complex architecture of the game. Which also includes the levels and mode of play.

So taunting enemies—Gallo’s preferred means of interacting with others. Which is essential to beating a level in Man of Honor. Since this slows down attackers and antagonists. Gallo engages in careful planning before he attacks his enemies. Which allows you to scan a level and chart your initial course.
Once in the thick of the fray, though, he is fast and reckless. Killing enemies quickly raises your score multiplier, and makes your bullets bigger and more powerful. An old-school Italian mobster, Gallo lives for his pride. His health-meter is actually a pride-meter.
There are lots of ways for a player to raise Gallo’s pride in Man of Honor. Drinking his favorite Rusty Bay beer is one way to increase his pride. But it has a downside. Since it makes the screen go blurry. Because Gallo is easily intoxicated—by excitement, by beer. Aand by his own grandiose ambitions. Which adds and interesting dynamic to the gameplay.
What you can expect:
The esthetics of the game also reflect Gallo’s character. The headlines that surround the field of play exist in his imagination, and they showcase his craving for fifteen minutes of fame. He wants to be the greatest hit man ever. His ambitions and desires become wilder the further he gets in his quest. But they’re counterbalanced by eerie undertones that waver and flicker on the ground under his feet. When his ambitions get more and more over-the-top, the undertones start to come fast and furious. Under his flamboyant, all-powerful façade, he’s a neurotic mess, full of anxiety and self-doubts because of his traumatic childhood. Underneath it all, he’s still the sad, lonely kid whose Dad beat him up when he came home after hauling crates off barges. But you’ll never get Gallo to admit that. He’ll just tell you he’s the next Michael Corleone or Tony Montana.
Man of Honoris currently available on Steam for Mac and Windows. This violent arcade games Linux release is coming soon. And as stated above, there is no release date just yet. So stay tuned. Unless you are partial to Wine or PlayOnLinux?
