Welcome to the perspective shifting world of Metamorphosis. We have a gameplay trailer for all to check out. Due to release on August 12th on Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. But thanks to a recent email from developer Ovid Works, Linux?
Metamorphosis is being developed on Unreal Engine 4. As for a Linux port, it’s something we would love to do.
So first off, the Linux release for the game is not concrete yet. But as the developer points out, this depends on a variety of factors. Which I presume would be bug fixes and the support factor. Since this would be the first Linux release for the studio. We will have to wait until closer to the release for further details.
Metamorphosis | Official Gameplay Trailer
In Metamorphosis you play as Gregor. A man who has morphed into a tiny bug. Setting out on an extraordinary journey to unravel the mystery of your transformation. So the game is a first person adventure based in a surrealist world. Where your newfound abilities are your last and only hope for redemption.
Metamorphosis places players on a perilous journey that’s as strange. But also a bit twisted and thoughtful such as Kafka’s literary works. Set in 1920s Prague, players will have to leap, climb, and chart their path. Working their way through a wide variety of settings. Which all ranges from a micro perspective. Including the human world, an underground world of insects, and a host of surreal environments.
Also, I just tried the Free Demo on Steam using Proton. It works!! I did notice a couple of frame drops here and there. But hey, it’s a Demo. Metamorphosis is definitely worth playing.
