Rayless Blade pixel art RPG game coming to Kickstarter for Windows PC and Linux too. All due to further details from the work of developer Kong Studio. Working to make its way into the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign soon.
Rayless Blade is an open world, pixel art RPG with JRPG style turn combat AND UNDERTALE style combat. While roaming the massive hi-bit pixel art world inspired by Hyper Light Drifter, you’ll make friends, enemies, and have to solve puzzles. Now to mention defeat difficult enemies in order to progress. All coming to Kickstarter on June 18th.
But you won’t have to do it alone; you’ll find many people that can be recruited to your team. Due to help you fight and explore. You’ll be able to recruit up to 3 members in Rayless Blade. Since each individual will belong to a certain class type. Such as, Dark Knight, Magic Knight, Strider, Engineer, Dragon Slayer, and Rebounder. So assembling your team is strategic in nature. As you progress, you will discover hidden and randomized loot by solving puzzles, searching obscured areas, and defeating enemies. Plus you can customize every team member. Use the loot you’ve earned to upgrade your team in terms of their gear.
On top of this, we may also see Linux support. According to the recent email reply from Kong Studio.
The game will indeed have a Linux port if we receive enough funding on Kickstarter.
Rayless Blade is being developed in GameMaker Studio 2. However, the developers want to commit to Linux, but they also want to support the community. Hopefully, when the campaign is live, Linux is not a stretch goal. But we will have to wait to see just what Kong Studio has in store. So far, the game looks pretty good.

Rayless Blade also has a story to follow. You are trapped on a remote island controlled by a vengeful tyrant who in turn is a puppet to a greater power. You’ll meet lovable, charming characters along the way, many of which will oppose you initially. They may also turn against you as a result of your actions.
