Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff open-world RPG update

swords ‘n magic and stuff open-world rpg game update for linux mac windows pc

Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff open-world RPG game has an update for Linux and Mac, due to join Windows PC. All due to further details from developer Kindred Games. Which is still going strong via Steam Early Access.

Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff is a casual, open-world RPG centered around the joy of discovery. Along with cooperative online multiplayer in mind. Although it plays just as well as a single player experience. You play a blank slate adventurer just waiting for you to carve out a destiny for them. With no classes, character levels, or real restrictions, you can be whoever you want to be. Also, use whatever weapons and items you can buy, craft or loot. And play however you wish. In Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff, you play at your own pace with no hand-holding.

Kindred Games had a very successful Kickstarter at the beginning of last year. Not to mention a successful early access launch in September of 2020. Helping the developer create this project into our dream game. While offering over 50 hours of content and tons of hidden items and secrets. Players have plenty to discover in this casual, cooperative, open world RPG.

Linux Support:

Currently, Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff is only available for Windows PC. But thanks to a recent email reply from developer Kindred Games, we have a Linux update.

So while Linux and Mac are definitely goals of ours, they might end up being pushed back until the game is mostly finished. And we won’t have to continually test and update each month for them.

The developer is currently focusing on Mac support, as promised via Kickstarter. But this is turning out to be a daunting task. But according to the email reply, it looks like support will not arrive until the game is close to the full release. The concern, maintaining support for the dev builds. Which would be a big task with all three platforms. With an aim first on Mac, then Linux after.
But according to the Discussions comment, Proton support works just fine. And as stated on the Steam page, Swords ‘n Magic and Stuff is due to be in Early Access for 1 to 2 years.
