Super Daryl Deluxe, the RPGvania with a brawler-style combat system with a Windows release on Steam, but not Linux. While this is a hand-drawn comic aesthetic from Dan & Gary Games. Which awkwardly introduces itself on Steam for Windows. But we can also expect a Linux release. So we reached out to developer Dan & Gary Games with interesting feedback.
“I’d love to do a Linux/Mac port in the future. I simply ran out of time after doing the PS4/Switch work. Once things wind down a bit I’m going to start figuring out what to prioritize next.
As for the engine, it’s a custom engine that I wrote in the MonoGame Framework.”
So two things, first this explains the lack of a day-one release. Hence the custom engine. But this also means that the MonoGame Framework will make porting to Linux more efficient. And since the game just released on Steam, this means fixes and community feedback will be the focus.
Super Daryl Deluxe – RPGvania Trailer (Windows, Linux and Mac coming)
Welcome to Water Falls High School (WFHS), a prestigious and perfectly normal multidimensional educational institute, where classes are alternate worlds based on their subjects. Distill essences in giant beakers in Science or have a very weird encounter with a very drunk and naked Julius Caesar in History.
Daryl Whitelaw, WFHS’s newest student, still has a lot to learn if he wants to survive and more importantly, make friends. Students keep disappearing. The mysterious new principal sits sealed away in his office. Classrooms are on lockdown and rumors fly about the return of the little thing that almost destroyed the world 40 years ago.
Saving the day might be a stretch for someone who thinks a mullet is a fashionable haircut, but Daryl and his poor fashion sense are the last hope for the students of WFHS. Granted he’s pretty useless on his own, but with a mysterious self-help book Daryl can mix, customize, and upgrade more than 45 powers to unleash on foes.
Unfortunately for Daryl, there’s no page advising against mouth-breathing. Luckily, he can complete side quests for his classmates to try and make up for his lack of cool. Climbing the ladder of teenage judgement sucks, but if Daryl manages to get somewhere he can unlock sweet new passive abilities and other rewards.
“All I can do is look at this game and think ‘Oh no what have I done?’” said Gary Porter, Gary of Dan & Gary Games. “Our playtesters said they really like Super Daryl Deluxe, but maybe they were just trying to be nice.”
