Skopje is due to take place an alternate version of the actual city under the same name. Which has n ow experienced an apocalyptic event during its most brutal peak. With roguelite elements and an open-ended world gameplay. There is certain a strong focus on exploring a city thrust into disarray. While you try and survive the hordes of mutated abominations that lurk at every corner. The early access release date will be announced at a later date.
That a creative art style an almost Borderlands type vibe. We reached out regarding Linux support. Since I’m a fan of FPS games and Skopje looks mighty interesting.
We’re developing the game in Unity. When it comes down to whether or not we’ll be releasing for Linux. We do intend to port it. But since we’re currently a tiny team of just two programmers. If we encounter any significant issues with the porting, it might come a bit later.
Dark-1 is a small team of friends sharing a common passion for making games. With experience rooting from local game development companies. And also numerous game jams. Members chose to leave behind their jobs in order to fully focus on independently developing games. Since then, Dark-1 has released one title. Hence the music based challenging side scrolling game, called Odium to the Core. Which is available on Linux, Mac and Windows PC.
