Mystic Pillars an Mancala adventure puzzle game exploring support for Linux and Mac beside Windows PC. Thanks to developer Holy Cow Productions. Releasing their first game on Steam.
Mystic Pillars re-imagines the traditional Indian board game. Ali Guli Mane or Chenne Mane in Kannada. Which is also similar to the popular board game known as Mancala across the world. Since you have to shift numbers across the pillars. While match in the correct solution. And as a result, puzzles become more complex and challenging. As you work through the story with different configurations. Then continue further into the game. Which all sounds simple enough.
That being said, the games technically a classic style, but only on Windows PC. So naturally, I had to reach out to see about Linux support.
We are currently exploring porting to Linux and Mac. We would love to be on as many platforms as possible.
So the game engine being used for Mystic Pillars is Unity 3D. Which also makes porting the game that much easier. And it’s inspiring to see the studio wanting to port. Hoping to be on as many platforms as possible.
