otxo top down shooter game shows hope for linux along with the windows pc release

OTXO top down shooter game shows hope for Linux along with the Windows PC release. Due to further details from developer Lateralis. Which is due to make its way onto Steam this April.

Coming next from Super Rare Originals is OTXO. Developed by Lateralis, the developer behind Dogworld, which does have 96% Very Positive reviews on Steam. Now getting ready to release a fast-paced and dark roguelite. Due to offering precise but savage gunplay and time-bending slow motion on April 20th. That release is also due to arrive on Windows PC. But, there is some hope for Linux. Since reaching out to Lateralis via Discord, “no Linux build is planned, but if the game does well enough it can certainly become an option.”
Yes, this may trigger some people, but it’s not a “no” from the developer. Who also explains that GameMaker Studio 2 is being used for development. The upside, GM2 does offer solid Proton support, since its Linux offering is primarily Ubuntu. Which should work nicely for Steam Deck players.

OTXO – Release Date Trailer

She’s waiting for you somewhere in this Mansion and you cannot leave until you find her. Cut your way through various unique areas and meet new allies as you delve deeper into the mystery.

  • Customization — Find the setup that’ll help you break the cycle with a range of unlockable weapons. There over 100 abilities you can acquire from the game’s obscure bartender.
  • Playstyle — With the slow-mo mechanic, Focus, at your disposal, OTXO will make you feel the power and control. However, be careful due to the variety of enemy types thrown in your way. Since this can quickly turn the tides of the combat if you don’t adapt fast.
