The latest gaming news, independent Developer #LiberPrimus Games launched Narborion Saga on Steam. Hence the epic #darkfantasy #adventure title is now on Steam, but not for Linux, yet. We issued a post last month highlighting the gameplay and what is yet to come in the release. Since we are also asking for your support to see a Linux port for Narborion Saga via Steam Discussions. Developer Dan from Liber Primus even commented on the post. Confirming, with enough community demand, a native port will be available.

Since gameplay brings together an adventurous mix of gamebook style narrative with in-depth branching storylines. While also including tactical combat and rogue-like dungeoneering, hence Narborion Saga. Which brings the RPG story to life with arena battles and PvP combat. Providing an engaging RPG fantasy experience.

“We are keen to release Narborion Saga on Steam. Providing RPG fans with a game that not only combines narrative. Yet does so with rogue-like RPG gameplay”, said Dénes Csiszár, Producer and Co-Founder of Liber Primus Games. “The complexity and replayability of the game should appeal to savvy PC players and RPG fantasy fans. Since each playthrough brings something new to the experience”.

The Narborion Saga for Steam combines three main RPG quests. Where players have the opportunity to develop character abilities. Learning new spells as well as dueling in Player VS Player combat. The gameplay is cut down into small episodes and placed as locations on the game map. To reach the episodes, players move their character on an overland map. As well as on several smaller (swamp, city, and dark forest) maps. Once there’s something to do or discover. Characters leave the map and enter a gamebook-styled narrative section to complete their quest.

Players will command the fate of the story’s hero through dynamic non-linear storytelling and rogue-like dungeon exploration. So the tale begins with a quest to find and rebuild the chapel of a long-forgotten Goddess. Then defeat the Master Vampire, Lord Malbor, agent of the God of Death and Magic. While the second quest, The God of Orcs, players will need to delve deep into the forces of darkness. Uncover a conspiracy of leadership with the mysterious new god of orcs. The third quest, The Swamp of a Thousand Paths tests players even further. Hence an adventure to the Coastless Lake to destroy an ancient Wyrm in search of important artifacts.

Narborion Saga is an impressive RPG game now on Steam. While we do no have official Linux gaming news for the release. So just jump onto the Discussion and upvote Linux.

aall walls must fall tech-noir tactics launches on kickstarter linux gaming news

In the latest gaming news, independent developer inbetweengames, announced their Kickstarter #campaign. Hence the tech-noir tactics game All Walls Must Fall. Now live, with the campaign set to run until Wednesday, 19th April. Scheduled for launch on Linux, Mac and Windows PC, All Walls Must Fall combines classic #turnbased #gameplay. While including a heavy emphasis on music, inspired by the likes of X-Com, Syndicate and Rez. With a sleek cyberpunk aesthetic and pulsating electronic soundtrack, inbetweengames have turned to Kickstarter in order to realise their dream. Check out the All Walls Must Fall Kickstarter Page.

“Hey Todd,

Yeah we noticed that Linux users are a passionate bunch so we thought we’ll get them on board right away. 🙂

We’re using Unreal Engine 4 for development of the game, so that’s also where our minimal specs will mostly come from. That being said we do optimize on low-spec machines as well and try to keep the game at an acceptable 30 FPS at minimum on the one we have.

We have a Linux version already and will continue supporting it throughout the closed alpha and later the open alpha on Steam Early Access. “

The initial funding goal of €15,000 will allow the team to run a closed alpha on itch.io for Kickstarter backers (May 2017). Followed by an Early Access release on Steam, including Linux support. The team will also add additional stretch goals. Allowing them to deliver additional features and content for All Walls Must Fall. At least once the original crowdfunding target has been met. These range from improved combat, diverse environments and intricate dialogue options, to a larger range of weapons. Acts 2 and 3 will also be part of additional stretch goals. All to bring further content and expand the story, introducing a new playable character in each Act. Which is some solid gaming news.

“We’re hugely excited to share our Kickstarter campaign with the public. While our time working on AAA titles at Yager was a wonderful experience in terms of lessons and friends. So we decided it was time for us to do away with compromise. And make the game we’ve always wanted to,” said Jan David Hassel, Designer of inbetweengames. “Drawing on our combined love of cyber-punk and film noir. As well as classic tactics and music games, All Walls Must Fall is a unique reinterpretation of those influences. All put together by a healthy dose of style. We can’t wait to embark on this journey with backers to make All Walls Must Fall the best game it possibly can be.”

In the world of All Walls Must Fall, the Cold War never ended. For 150 years, both sides have used time manipulation technology to observe and counter each other’s every move. Now this fragile state of affairs is approaching breaking point. As a rogue nuclear strike has been set, sending the world into turmoil. Both sides have scrambled to send agents back in time to find the person behind the order in the hope they might prevent it. If they fail, the whole world will turn to ash, forever.

All Walls Must Fall is an isometric tactics game where action happens to the pulsing beat of the music. You control time travelling secret agents as they jump and loop through a single night in the city of Berlin. Using a pausable real-time system, carefully plan your decisions and use powerful time manipulation abilities to your advantage, as you carry out your mission in the shadows or in plain sight. Levels are a procedurally recombination using a system under development by inbetweengames. Giving All Walls Must Fall a highly replayable campaign structure, while still offering individual creation of components and set-pieces.

Since this is some solid gaming news, the All Walls Must Fall Kickstarter campaign is available now for Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
