Hey Todd, no date confirmation yet.
Since this reply comes directly from Aspyr Media. Yet I do trust in the nature of their product releases and development. Since the release for Civilization VI took longer but with a solid Linux build. So the games at least playable on Windows, or some who use Wine.
>observer_ introduces players to a frightening concept. How would it feel if your fears could be weaponized against you? Since Detective Daniel Lazarski is an “Observer”. And part of a corporate-funded, specialized police unit. Since they have full legal clearance to tap a target’s mind via neural implant. A cryptic message from your estranged son sets you on a journey to the drug-ridden Class C slums of Krakow, Poland. So you hack into the minds of criminals and victims alike. Uncovering the truth of the mysterious communique. While forced into a surreal landscape of the resident’s darkest fears.
>observer_ holds the same fantastic pacing of Layers Of Fear. While using modern themes to illustrate a society where hacking people’s nightmares is reality. The game questions the moral implications of using people’s most guarded memories as weapons. Delve into people’s most disturbing internal struggles. Finding the answers you seek. Through the games futuristic, Blade Runner-esque narrative.
