Developer Reikon Games and the publisher Devolver Digital have their hands full. Hence the brutal cyberpunk action shooter RUINER is available on Windows as of September 26th, 2017. Yet the Linux and Ubuntu release will be delayed. Which is what the developer outlined yesterday on Steam.

The state of the Linux release:

Hi guys,

Linux port is currently on hold. We have so much work around the current versions that we have to prioritize our efforts. We will think about it after the hottest period is over 😉

Take care,

Therefore, as it stands, we will have to wait. Which seems to be the case with Unreal Engine 4 games. Linux and Ubuntu ports seems to take longer. Take games such Everspace for instance. Currently available in a Linux Beta, not a full out release. Mind you, there was an issue to be resolved for the game engine itself. Still that “hold” for RUINER is somewhat surprising. Since we were expecting an update sometime within two weeks of the release. So… we wait.

RUINER – Launch Trailer:

Therefore for those who do not know, RUINER is a brutal action shooter. The games set in the year 2091 in the cyber metropolis Rengkok. A wired psychopath lashes out against a corrupt system. All while retrieving his kidnapped brother under the guidance of a secretive hacker friend. Combine preternatural reflexes, augmented tools, and the arsenal of fallen foes. Then tear down and dismantle the corporate titans of virtuality dealers at HEAVEN.

Reflexes will be put to the test as players take aim at HEAVEN, the monolithic corporation behind the entertainment networks bringing people real sensations in virtual worlds. The masked hero will utilise a fantastic array of weaponry and gadgets in concert with fluid movement and tactical strikes to save his kin and discover the hidden truths of Rengkok.

So RUINER is available on Steam, GOG, and Humble Store for $19.99 USD as of September 26th, 2017. Those who are keen to pre-order for Linux and Ubuntu, it’s your call.
