Originally trying to play the Linux build on Steam was a challenge in early November. Since Tandem: A Tale of Shadows would not execute. So the only way to jump in the haunting tale was via command line. Well, it certainly seems that Monochrome has fixed that issue. Now the game launches perfectly from within Steam. Which also looks absolutely gorgeous on Linux by the way.
So, for those familiar with the Beta Branch, try the code “hatinhint004“. Do keep in mind, this is a Beta, but it plays really well. Plus controller support also integrates nicely into Tandem: A Tale of Shadows. While the “release date is next week”, but no official date yet.
December 3rd Update removes the Linux Beta build.
