Spirit of the Island story driven life sim RPG developer working on support for Linux with Windows PC. Thanks to details from developer 1M Bits Horde. Working to make its way onto Steam Early Access later this year.
Solo developer Alex Kikuchi (1M Bits Horde!) is happy to reveal the story driven life sim RPG, Spirit of the Island. The game will be releasing on Windows PC in 2021. With a Kickstarter campaign due to launch soon. If funded, Kickstarter pledges will be used to develop console versions and cross platform multiplayer support. Reaching out to 1M Bits Horde, Linux support is also in the works.
Since Unity supports Linux, I would love to try to port a version for it. I just need more time and a lot of testing.
While this is good news for Spirit of the Island, obviously further testing has to take place. Alex Kikuchi also mentioned in the email that he has 10 years of experience with Unity 3D. Which should certainly offer a huge plus for Linux suport going forward. Since he also works for Unity as well. Making the possibility of Linux support a great deal more solid. Since the game offers online co-op but cross-platform multiplayer.
