No Truce With The Furies is an isometric RPG coming to Steam and Humble Store. While set in this genre-bent setting where literary fiction meets sci-fi/fantasy. Since the games actually inspired by titles like Planescape: Torment and Kentucky Route ZeroNo Truce With The Furies tells a detective story where every piece of dialogue has a lasting effect. While this can be big, small, or even unspoken.
Since developer ZA/UM has spent the better part of fifteen years creating the world. So No Truce With The Furies is a narrative-driven experience. Made uniquely possible through the interactive role-playing genre.

What about a Linux release?

Hi Todd,

The game is built on the Unity engine.

As for the port, I’m afraid I cannot say much more right now.

Seeing this is not a full out confirmation. We are now asking Linux gamers to show some Tux love via the Discussion Post on Steam. Therefore we can show ZA/UM some solid community support for the games coming release.

So explore the gorgeous seaside city of Revachol as a disgraced detective lieutenant. Solving one last murder case that has roots deep within the city’s core. Shape the type of law officer you want to be in No Truce With The Furies. While using twenty-four unique and finely crafted skills. Each represents a real human psyche and physique. Expect absurd new heights of story combat. Since the action is all through quick-wit dialogue. Which can steer your moral compass in any direction. So wonder inside a representation of your mind in the metaphysical Thought Cabinet. Examine your own doubts, conflicts and memories, guiding your in-game dialogue choices. Yet the role-playing games an emergent art form — and ZA/UM is set to light it on fire.

No Truce With The Furies Features:

  • Fantastic Realism: Is it fantasy? Is it sci-fi? Is it alt history? Some kind of punk? No, it’s a genre-busting new world fifteen years in the making. It’s fantastic realism.
  • Beautifully Bleak Paint-shading: The benchmark for isometric graphics have been pushed to new heights thanks to contemporary oil painters who hand painted the environments to bring the city of Revachol to life.
  • The Thought Cabinet: Thoughts of all kinds are stored in an interactive inventory. Come to conclusions, develop obsessions and use these thoughts to guide dialogue choices.
  • The Skill System: The world’s simplest role-playing system called Metric. You can sing, dance, pay rent and actually fail at skill checks with profound results. Built by D&D evangelists, the rule system represents real life attributes.
  • Audio and Ambiance: Mikee Goodman from the band SikTh provides killer voice-over talent and the acclaimed rock’n’roll band British Sea Power has recorded original music for the game.

GOKEN RPG coming to Linux – no release date

goken rpg coming to linux - no release date games on steam for windows

Since GOKEN is designed to bring back everything that was right about gaming. While set in an open world environment in the form of the good old Action RPG on Windows via Steam. Yet the games that’s bring back old school gamers into some nostalgia, will be coming to Linux.

So we reached out to developer GIANTY and they this to say about Linux:

Hello Todd!

A Linux port of GOKEN has seem to be garnering a lot of attention since release. And while initially we weren’t so sure about splitting resources for a Linux version. It is now being brought up on several levels in the company.

While I can not make any promises. I can definitely say that what was once a small blimp in our radar is now something we feel the need to deal about.

GOKEN is indeed developed on “Unity” which makes for a port sound all the more possible.

Again I don’t mean to pump false hope nor can I provide you with any dates or specifics. So forgive us for being unclear on your
question.

So clearly, there is no set release date for the Linux build of GOKEN. Yet this does prove that a with enough support, Linux gamers can influence a port. Even though the game engine of choice is Unity. Which we all knows supports the majority of native games on Steam.

GOKEN Features:

  • Seamless open-world game mechanics
    While the game features a rather old school “quarter view” mechanic, the map transitions and event scenes, even the combat is all seamless as can be to enhance the overall gaming experience.
  • Real time strategic action battle system
    Utilizing 2 primary attack buttons, users can assign different weapons to each button to create a unique combo that fits the users need as they go. Monsters, bosses and stage gimmicks can require a specific type of weapon at times creating opportunities for users to strategize their best route of approach.
  • Customizable Tattoo system
    Utilizing “tattoos”, users are given specific points upon leveling to get the protagonist inked as a form of powering up so it could be built to one’s own. Raising MAX HP and Stamina, learning new and special moves are just a few of many ways players are able to customize their character depending on their play style.

So the GOKEN release date has not be set for Linux. Yet the games available now on Steam Early Access for Windows.
