Spirit of the Island life-sim RPG support

spirit of the island life-sim rpg game support for linux and mac with windows pc

Spirit of the Island life-sim RPG game support for Linux and Mac with Windows PC. Thanks to further details and work from developer 1M Bits Horde. Which is available on Steam, but discounted on GOG and Humble Store.

Spirit of the Island is now globally available. Doing so a​​​​​​fter the successful Kickstarter Campaign. Now META Publishing and Alex Kikuchi (Head of 1M Bits Horde) are very eager to release their colorful life simulation RPG. Which is available on Windows PC, but still holds hope for Linux and Mac.

We still have some work to do in the game, before checking Linux or Mac (problem is testing and the time for it).

Having recently received an email from Alex Kikuchi, Linux support is still in the mix. As stated in the email reply, there is still quite a bit of work to do on Spirit of the Island. But apparently, testing is the issue for the Unity 3D. Which should make the porting process easier, but no ETA. But there is Proton, for now.
But that being said, I’ve made the suggestion for Alex to create a post on the Linux_gaming subreddit. With hopes that interested players can help with testing.

In the mean time, after five months in Early Access, Spirit of the Island is fully available. The game has also received lots of community driven quality of life upgrades and content updates. Along with many positive reviews from players.
