Spiritfall action roguelite game aims at Linux via Steam Deck and Windows PC. Thanks to further details from the dedicated minds behind Gentle Giant. Due to make its way onto Steam Early Access soon.

Indie Studio Gentle Giant has announced that their upcoming 2D action roguelite + platform fighter, Spiritfall. Which is due to release on Steam Early Access, March 7th. However, reaching out to the developers they do have Linux in mind.

We don’t have anything set in stone for Linux yet. However Spiritfall is running on Steam Deck.

The game is developed in Unity 3D, so Proton support does work nicely with the Demo. Although it’s a bit unsurprising since many developers have an interest in the Steam Deck. So I sincerely hope Gentle Giant actually releases native support in Early Access. Since Spiritfall deserves Linux stability.
