The Endless Wyrd deck-building, roguelike adventure Early Access and Demo for Windows PC, plus Linux support. According to details from developer Design Imps. Due to make it’s way onto Steam Early Access this fall.

The Endless Wyrd is a dice based, deckbuilding, roguelike adventure. Where players scavenge the Wyrd, so they can escape the approaching Thing of the Dark. Load your dice with powerful augments to create your own synergies and combos. So you can stack the odds in your favor. While in the rabbit hole of the Wyrd, the only way back up, is down.

There is a bit of interesting news regarding The Endless Wyrd. First, Design Imps are planning Linux support. As stated, they are “very keen to port to Linux. But realistically that would only happen after the early access launch and development of the game has stabilized.”
Since game development is using Unity 3D, porting to Linux should be straight forward. Aiming for the full release and Linux support in Q4 2021.

That being said, The Endless Wyrd Alpha Demo is live on Steam right now. Which also plays very well using Proton. This is good news for Early Access, due to kick off in Q3 2021. Plus there will be a feature-complete demo of the game coming in a few months. It’s certainly a pleasure to see how well the Alpha Demo runs via Proton.
