Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff is doing well on Kickstarter for Mac and Windows PC, but also has Linux in mind next. Thanks to developer Kindred Games. Who’s crowdfunding campaign is doing exceedingly well.
Kindred Games is crowdfunding to help finish its first commercial game. A casual, cooperative open world RPG called Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff. And the campaign is also doing very well. Within the first 2 hours of the Kickstarter campaign launch on March 17th. The project was already 40% funded. Now passing the $21,950 USD goal. And its still growing with 26 days to go. So you know the game is going to be a solid casual RPG.
Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff is due to release in Early Access on Steam. Coming to both Mac and Windows PC in September, 2020. It features a hands-off approach to a multiplayer RPG. While including a class-less, level-less experience. So that players play however they want. Simply relying on curiosity and the joy of discovery to drive the gameplay.
Now, since Unreal Engine 4 is clearly used for development. As seen in the Kickstarter campaign page. I asked about the missing Linux support for Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff.
My programmer and I would absolutely LOVE to add Linux support. We’ve got a good handful of fans in our Discord who are constantly hounding us about supporting Linux. So we’re doing our best to make it happen.
We’ve just promised a Mac build. And will be working toward that over the next couple months. As we push out more builds for our testing team. Once we’ve confirmed a Mac build for Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff. We’ll move on to testing out Linux.
We plan on working directly with our testers on the Linux build. so I’m pretty confident it’s gonna happen.
So there you have. There is also a further comment regaring ‘wine support’. More as an alternative if support doesn’t happen for some reason. But know that the developer is working towards a Linux build. And that you can support the campaign. But also be sure to Wishlist the game on Steam too.
