Stardrytch classic 2D platformer game port still planned for Linux with Windows PC. Thanks to the ongoing efforts of developer Nils Kastens. Currently available on Steam with positive reviews.
As a solo indie developer Nils Kastens releases a unique action platformer, Stardrytch. But currently, the game only supports Windows PC. Although, Linux support is still in the plan, according to a recent email reply.
I am very busy right now, but I have not forgotten about the Linux version.
Stardrytch is a Unity 3D games still due to get a port. While being a solo developer means he is the only person handling any fixes or tweaks to the game. Although I did manage to test the game with Proton 6.3-7 and everything works well. Even the controller input is nicely integrated. Which should allow for a smoother port for the game.
