The Flower Collectors detective game support coming for Linux and Windows PC release. Thanks to developer Mipumi Games who are announcing the coming release on Steam. But we also have Linux release details as well.
The Flower Collectors is a detective mystery game. All taking place in the political powder keg of Barcelona in 1977. Due to release on Windows PC, April 21st. This is also Mipumi’s second major release. Following its acclaimed debut of 2016’s The Lion’s Song. Which has great reviews on Steam.
So it looks like we have good news for Linux gaming. Since developer Mipumi Games just sent details via email. And as a result, I’ve been waiting for game support.
The Flower Collectors is created in Unity.
At the moment we are focusing on Steam PC, GOG and Windows store. As you can see with our first game The Lion’s Song. We added more platforms along the way. Since we are a small studio we have to take our steps carefully though.
Therefore, this is good news going forward. Since The Flower Collectors Linux release will not be possible until after launch. But again, this is another Unity game. So this should also make porting easier, even though we do not have a release date. It’s a pleasure to see a developer inspiring a commitment to Linux support.
