Soul Grabber is an beat’em up side-scroller now on Steam Early Access for Windows, but coming to Linux. The games pays tribute to nostalgic arcade smashers and dungeon adventurers. So indie developer Masthead Studios is launching their beat’em up. The best part, the games available on the Steam store for $1.99 USD. And it’s completely playable on Linux via Wine & PlayOnLinux.
“A linux port is not planned at this early stages of development.”
So Soul Grabber development uses Unity 3D. Which means we will have to wait roughly a year before we see a full release. This is according to the Early Access page. At which point we will see a Linux release.
Also, to get the game to run in PlayOnLinux. I just run with Wine staging 2.15, voila. Easy peasy. Definitely worth it for an Early Access game and you can’t beat the price. Which is actually a great game.
Soul Grabber mixes the quintessential button hitter formula. Also including a randomized dungeon crawling and exploration. Playing as an archeologist trapped in a devastated universe. Since he can also possess the body of your skillful enemies.
Which means facing off against deadly beasts. A few fearsome demons and many other gruesome creatures. All while you find a way to break the spell.

“With Soul Grabber we are twisting the classic beat’em genre by featuring the body-swap skill which will give you the power to fight as if you were one of the bad guys” says Orlin Dutskinov, Creative Producer at Masthead Studios. “The current game is a neat game, but it will evolve into a longer and deeper adventure as the project gets closer to it’s full release”.
Soul Grabber contains dozens of distinct enemies. Since you can embody them, possessed by your character. Explore 3 demonized areas and conquer the netherworld by defeating terrifying bosses. While you attempt to escape from destiny. Build your own roadmap as you progress randomly generated dungeons. And also, try to survive.
