Fumiko created in Unity3D Linux Editor launches on Steam

fumiko story-driven adventure launches created in Unity3D Linux Editor

So #FumikoGameStudio #released the latest title in Linux #games, launching on Steam, including Mac and Windows PC. Pitting players in the roll of an artificial intelligence named Fumiko. While the character managed to escape the testing grounds, the voices tell the player where to go in the story-driven adventure. A surreal world is unfolding. So everything is unknown in the dystopian network of 2080.

Fumiko will be my first release and has been in development for 3 years. The main reason that it took me so long was that I was working part-time for 2 and a half of these years. I founded this little game studio in July 2016. Fumiko! is developed with the Unity3D Linux Editor. I’m putting a big focus of including as much open source software as possible into the development workflow. A short list of software used is Blender, GIMP, Audacity, FL Studio, Openshot, SimpleScreenRecorder, JACK, VIM, Terminator and Kanboard.

So it’s impressive to see such a game hitting Steam. Hence even more so where the Linux Unity3D editor is being used. While also taking advantage of other familiar open-source software for game development.

Check out the games Linux demo, available on IndieDB.

The games trailer:

Features:

  • Your abilities are taking surreal forms over the course of the game as Fumiko is evolving
  • The longest dashs and highest jumps you have ever seen
  • Learn more about this virtual network of the 2080s and explore the lives of its inhabitants
  • Break into threatful security systems in your search for answers
  • Admire the beauty of a hand-crafted low-poly world
  • Day-1 Linux and Windows support
  • Supports the Xbox, Xbox360 and Steam Controller. Other gamepads are detected but might have wrong button & axis mapping. Using software to simulate an xbox controller should work.

Since this is a story-driven single-player adventure game, the player will enter a rabbit hole. Hence the network is preparing to stop you from becoming too powerful. Visit social hubs and protect the people from a threat yet unknown.

So Fumiko presents something different, a unique gameplay style. Now the story-driven adventure is available on Steam for Linux, Mac and Windows PC with a nice 25% discount until February 20th.

If you’re looking for more straight up action games, check out Neon Drive and Bleed 2.

Spriter makes it easy for anyone, regardless of experience, to create 2D game animations using a technique called Modular Animation.

This allows you to quickly create great looking animations in a fraction of the time while requiring significantly less art.

While you could pay more than the average price. So you would get the Clickteam FusionHTML5 exporter, Marmoset Hexels 2, a 1-year subscription to Todoist Premium, and PICO-8.

Itch.io gets blocked by Valve incompatibility on Steam Greenlight

itch.io gets blocked on steam greenlight with incompatibility

A follow-up on our recent #story about Itch, the indie game store application trying to get votes on Steam Greenlight. Which is not going to happen.

After receiving a message from Valve. Since the Itch.io creators report that their #application is not applicable on Steam Greenlight. “This item is incompatible with Greenlight,” reads the header at the top of Itch’s Greenlight page. Itch.io shared a private message from Valve. Sent through a representative outlining that Steam is not available to handle that type of non-game software.

Here how Itch.io gets blocked in this message sent by Valve. As a result of their posting on Twitter by one of the Itch creator’s:

Before posting your game

Before you post your game to Steam Greenlight, you must agree to the following:

  • Have a functioning build of the core mechanics in your game that can be demonstrated in a video
  • Own the rights to sell the game you are posting, or you have specific authorization to represent the developer
  • You agree to the terms and conditions of the Steam Subscriber Agreement

Additionally, you agree not post any item to Greenlight that contains the following:

  • Someone else’s game, unless you have specific authorization to do so
  • Porn, inappropriate or offensive content, warez or leaked content
  • Cheating, hacking, game exploits
  • Threats of violence or harassment, even as a joke
  • Games using copyright material such as assets or intellectual property without permission from the owner
  • Soliciting, begging, auctioning, selling, advertising, referrals racism, discrimination

There is a variety of software available on Steam. Hence some which does not necessarily fall into any of those categories. So the Valve reasoning could be a challenge. Mind you, expecting Valve to give the go-ahead to an application for another game store? Even though Uplay is been bundled with Ubisoft’s games on Steam.
