PLANET ALPHA a beautiful alien world filled with mystery and danger but no Linux support. We reached out to Team17 early this month via email. Ideally looking to ensure native support for PLANET ALPHA platformer coming in Q3 2018.
“The game is created in the Unreal Engine 4. At this moment we’re just planning for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.”
So here’s what happened. We emailed publisher Team17 about Linux support back on June 9th. Since they are quite good at keeping developers up to speed on platform support. And I was hoping to see more of a positive feedback.
Well that’s clearly not the case. Not only that but the developer also commented via Steam. Stating, “there are currently no plans to bring it to Linux or Mac, sorry about that!”
So that’s that, for now. I’m sure there is indeed a commitment to how success the release will be. Therefore they are no plans for Linux suppport now. But, if you feel like sharing that Tux Love, hit the link above and do so.
PLANET ALPHA is the development work of Denmark based independent developer, Adrian Lazar of Planet Alpha ApS game studio. They have a rather snappy trailer you might want to check out. Since this presents the forthcoming mysterious, beautiful platform adventure game PLANET ALPHA.
The newly released trailer takes a look at the atmospheric and enigmatic alien word you’ll explore as well as showcasing some of the strange, creative and intriguing puzzle elements of the game. The puzzle elements marry together with engaging fast paced side-scrolling platforming sections. So things like stealth mechanics and environment manipulation. All set within a unique and beautiful art style to create an unforgettable experience.
