As part of our strategy, we want to be early adopters on platforms and operating systems that suit our games. Linux is definitely a great opportunity to make our games available to a broader audience and we are pleased to say that The Book of Unwritten Tales is simply the first of them to be developed for the Linux platform,” said Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development at Nordic Games.
“We’re excited for players to finally get their hands on the Steam Linux version,” said Jan Theysen, Creative Director at KING Art. “It will also allow fans of the game and those who may not have played before to be part of something special in PC gaming history.”
