Mythic Battles: Pantheon is now on Kickstarter games for Windows PC, but we could see Linux support. We reached out to Sanuk Games. Who are proud to announce the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. With a pledge goal of €100,000. Which is currently 11% funded with 27 days left to go. Which is also selected as a “Project We Love!”.
So what is Mythic Battles: Pantheon? Well the games a tightly crafted turn based strategy title. Since you play as an Olympian God. While leading the greatest heroes and monsters. As well as playing the best warriors to ever live in Ancient Greece.
Which seems to also resemble the look of Titan Quest. But we have hope for native Linux support. Here’s what the studio has to say about Mythic Battles: Pantheon.
“The game is built with Unity. A Linux build is not in our projects right now. Because our experience with game publishing on PC is that Linux barely makes for 1% of the sales. But on the other hand we have received several inquiries about it. So depending on how it goes we may consider it.”
So there you have it. And it seems that recently, there are support debates over that 1%. Even though Unity still makes the majority of Linux games on Steam. The market share is still an influence. Even with Unity 3D being the easier game engine to port games to Linux.
However, it does look like Sanuk Games are taking Linux more seriously. Since there are requests for native platform support.
But sadly there is no Steam page listing yet. So we can’t even Wishlist Mythic Battles: Pantheon. While the gameplay does look hopeful. I wish there was more marketing support for the game itself.
