Oaken tactical roguelike game restores magic via Linux, Mac, and Windows PC Early Access. All due to the creative work of developer Laki Studios. Which is now live on Steam Early Access and GOG.

Oaken is a turn-based tactical roguelike taking place in the spirit world of the Great Oak. Al thanks to developer Laki Studios and publisher Goblinz Publishing. Letting players explores a magical land on Early Access. Which is due to last for roughly 5 – 7 months. So not too long. Plus, we have some confirmation that a Linux build will be available.

Yes, we will support Linux.


The Linux support patch is planned for next few days!

While this may be good news for the launch of Oaken. It may mean we have to wait until the full release of the Unity 3D game. I’m also hoping that “support Linux” does not mean Proton. Although playing the Windows PC Demo via Proton does work well but it’s also not a native build. Try it for yourself. In the mean time, this will be a wait and see.

Hear the-wisps, seedlings, and wanderers as they travel towards the Great Oak’s voice. A mighty tree shrouded by spirits deep in the magical kingdom of Oaken. Harmony reigns under the Great Oak’s steady presence. Until one day the voice goes silent and chaos engulfs the land in its wake.
