Sir Plump is a 2D action platformer game on Kickstarter for Windows and Mac, which is also coming to Linux. Since the crowfunding campaign started, the development efforts of Gamelab caught my attention. Featuring perky graphics taking inspiration from Disney classics. So players can dive into the gripping world of the Middle Ages with this hilarious knight.
The developers are looking for a total of $50,000 USD with over $2,800 USD already under their belt. So the project is indeed moving along, but they seem to be lacking in the manner of PR. Since the campaign deserves a lot more attention.
“We work with Unity and Linux is definitely on our list! We’ll start to develop to PC and MAC first, but if we reach our goal, it’ll be available on Linux too!”
So it seems that requesting Linux support is an ongoing task. Especially since Sir Plump development is using Unity 3D. A massively popular engine that makes it easy to port to Linux. Yet again, the request is in and we have confirmation. Although, “if we reach our goal” seems a bit subjective.
