settlement survival challenging city builder game to probably port to linux with windows pc

Settlement Survival challenging city builder game to probably get a port for Linux with Windows PC. Thanks to a recent bit of detail from developer Gleamer Studios. Working to make a debut on Steam Early Access next month.

Settlement Survival invites you to lead a group of survivors in search of a new home. The challenging city builder takes inspiration from the genre defining Banished. Also releasing its first public demo on Steam in time for October’s Next Fest. Which you can play now.
On top of this, it looks like Linux support will “probably” be available. At least according to the Discussions comment on Steam:

Probably will support

While this is good news, it’s all of the detail we have right now. That being said, the game engine is Unity 3D. But due to arrive in Early Access next month, plus the games Demo runs well via Proton. Which also offers a place for Mod support coming in the game. So it looks like developer Gleamer Studio is going for long term replayability. And only makes sense to expand platform support to include Linux.
