redshot metroidvania game works on steam deck hoping for a linux build with windows pc

REDSHOT metroidvania game works on Steam Deck but hoping to have a Linux build with Windows PC. Due to further details from developer Brian Lynch. Working to make its way onto Steam.

REDSHOT is a bullet-time Metroidvania where everything is deadly, but you are deadlier. You will have to make split second decisions to stay alive in the middle of fast and frantic combat. With a range of horrid monstrosities and murderous nomads.

According to recent details from the developer, Linux support is in the plan.

I am hoping to have a native Linux port done some time after release. But I’ve recently been testing it on the steam deck and it works totally fine.

According to the email, REDSHOT is being developer Gamemaker Studio 2.25. But we do have developer confirmation that the game works surprisingly well on the Steam Deck. Plus the next patch will have a few small optimizations. This is due to help it run better on the Steam Deck by default, without changing settings. You can also check out the Windows PC Demo on Itch via Wine.
