Nina Aquila: Legal Eagle Season One testing Proton for the games debut on Linux and Windows PC. Thanks to developer Tanuki-sama Studios. After making its big release onto Steam with Chapter I.
Tanuki-sama Studios announces the indie courtroom drama adventure game Nina Aquila: Legal Eagle. Since Season One is due to support Valve’s upcoming SteamDeck platform. Ghe studio is discussing the hardware setups on developer channels. All while having Linux users from the Linux_gaming subreddit test the game. With hopes of testing the final hardware closer to launch.
Back on July 12th, I reached out regarding Linux support for Nina Aquila: Legal Eagle.
The game is developed in RPG Maker MV, which means a Linux version is possible. However, I don’t have a Linux box and therefore can’t test it.
So this explains the recent subreddit post asking Linux players to test the game. Offering Tanuki-sama the idea to gain community feedback.
Mind you, this post also has a strong focus on Proton. Despite the games engine offering native Linux support. The reddit post states hopes that the game “just runs” using Proton for the SteamDeck. While giving the developer a chance to decide if a native Linux SteamOS port is possible.
This new release puts together and improves all existing chapters. Which is now a popular ongoing indie graphic adventure visual novel hybrid. Nina Aquila: Legal Eagle is a courtroom drama game. One that also takes place in a world where all anime genres exist at once.
