Skeletal Avenger hack and slash game due to get support for Linux beside Windows PC. Thanks to feedback from developer 10tons Ltd. Due to make a debut on Steam.

Multiplatform game developer and publisher 10tons announces Skeletal Avenger. The game is a roguelite hack’n’slash dungeon crawler with a twist. So instead of one infinite quest, gameplay has an endless amount of shorter quests. But an actual ending. The game will launch into Early Access late 2020.

At this point Linux version seems likely! The engine is our own.

It looks like Linux support is indeed coming to Skeletal Avenger. This is confirmed by developer 10tons Ltd. And it’s also interesting to not see Unity being used in the mix.

Skeletal Avenger Reveal Trailer

Skeletal Avenger is a hack’n’slash game at its core. We played a lot of Hades and it’s probably one of the main inspirators for this game. We spice up the hack’n’slash core with some unique concepts. Like special moves which all include self decapitation. We’ve also shaken some roguelite conventions like continuing until death. The game starts from re-animating after death. And then progresses towards a kind of spiritual release through vengeance. Each quest for revenge may end because the avenger dies. Or because the target for the revenge dies.”, lead developer Sampo Töyssy comments.

“Vengeance is the main concept of Skeletal Avenger. All the quests start with an obituary – a small procedural story. It describes how the revive of the misuse of the avenger. And who is also the perpetrator. The quest completes by killing the perp and completing the revenge. The quests yield coin and gear. Which makes the next avenger even more powerful and the game continues.”, Sampo continues.

“In some way the undead invasion started by 10tons’ popular Undead Horde. Continuing into Skeletal Avenger. The games are completely different but they share the same style. And the idea of undead heroes. Our customers seem to like these themes as did we. So we are really excited to create another game around them.”, Sampo concludes.

Skeletal Avenger hack and slash game will release in early access Q4 2020. The first platforms include Windows PC and due to get support for Linux as well. Built using 10tons Ltd. proprietary game engine technology. Andd is primarily targeting PC’s and current & next-generation consoles. More details on other platforms will be coming at a later date. So be sure to Wishlist the game on Steam.
