Evil Licorice, a new team consisting of Studio Evil is eager to come together. Due to reveal their latest project, Retro Gadgets, a gadget-creation station where players invent, code, and customize their own gadgets. Then share them with the world.
This early in the life of the project we cannot make any commitment. But if everything goes well, we would like to support Linux.
This is the recent statement from the Forum post. This makes sense since Unity 3D is being used for Retro Gadgets development. And rightfully so, we need a game like this with native support. Something different to add to the mix. Plus the Demo does run smoothly on Linux via Proton. Which gives a first hand impression of gameplay.
