Semblance puzzle platformer and native support status

semblance puzzle platformer and linux support status

Semblance is a new world-busting puzzle platformer available on Mac and Windows, but we have the status for Linux. Well at least so far, according to developer Nyamakop.

Semblance launched this week from independent South African developer Nyamakop. The game is available today for $9.99 USD on Windows PC and Mac via Steam, Humble Store and GOG. This also includes a 10% launch discount on all platforms from now through July 31st.

Linux Status:

“The Unity Engine is being used.

Due to the size of the development team, it’s unlikely there will be a Linux port anytime soon, sadly. If the game does well this is something we might be able to reconsider though.”

Since this sounds a bit convoluted. The fact that the game is holding a 100% Positive in Steam reviews. There is a good chance we will see a Linux port. Which plays into the success of the release. Since this is a Unity 3D, the lack of Linux support is almost comical.

Semblance is an innovative puzzle platformer where nearly everything. This also includes your soft, bouncy character and the environment around you. So squish, squash, mold and deform in imaginative ways to solve problems. Grab hard-to-reach collectibles and heal the land from an infestation of hard material.

Semblance lets you move between challenges at your pace. Which is a great feature, since gameplay comes with an engaging story that unravels organically as you explore.

Semblance – puzzle platformer Launch Trailer (Mac, Windows, no Linux yet)

Semblance started as our final year university project at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2015. After a suggestion by an experienced AAA game developer. The developers decided to make the game into a full release. Working on the game ever since. Exploring the consequences of a deformable character, and more recently, a mouldable world.


  • A unique playdough world to mould and deform to your will.
  • A soft and squishy character to help squeeze into tight spots, and interact with the world in different ways.
  • Gorgeous, yet simple art style.
  • Challenging puzzles for players to solve.
  • Engaging, yet minimalist story.

Throughout development, Semblance won multiple special honors at gaming shows for its unique design and aesthetic. The game comes full of beautiful colors, minimalist artwork, charming critters and a soothing atmosphere.

Semblance puzzle platformer is available on Steam, Humble Store, GOG for Mac and Windows. But chances are a Linux build will be available, no ETA. The games success continues to be solid and it’s Unity 3D.
