Ruinarch evil overlord simulator is due to get native Linux and Mac port along with Windows PC. According to recent comments by developer Maccima Games. The game is already getting 90% Very Positive review on Steam Early Access.
The Early Access launch for Ruinarch is only the beginning. Since the studio has a very long term support for the game. By opening up development through an Early Access phase. This means they can avoid the Kickstarter funding uncertainty. Or worse, where projects can sometimes overpromise and underdeliver. But instead Maccima Games can make room for the many interesting ideas that players may come up with.
As a tiny indie team of just three people, the budget is also an issue. Consequently the Early Access release lets players support and keep team afloat. But they also now have access to a fully playable game. Given this type of development, this means that native support is on hold. However, the Steam comment the team “will port to Linux and Mac in the future.” But since the game is developed in Unity 3D. This should will make Proton support a solid option until a port arrives.
