the hand of merlin rogue-lite rpg game to support ubuntu 20.04 on linux with windows pc

The Hand of Merlin rogue-lite RPG game to only support Ubuntu 20.04 on Linux with Windows PC. All due to a recent post offered by developer Room-C Games. Currently available on Steam Early Access, GOG, and Humble Store.

Independent developer Room C Games in co-production with Croteam had another major content update this month. The rogue-lite RPG game The Hand of Merlin further aligns itself for its forthcoming 1.0 launch. While Room-C Games offers further details on Linux support. Doing in a Steam Discussions comment.

We’re planning on officially supporting only Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

Are you able to get a log file generated before the game crashes?
It should be in a path like this:
/home/user/Steam/steamapps/common/The Hand of Merlin/Log/Merlin.log

If so, please send it to: [email protected]

But if the game doesn’t even generate a log file, that means you may be missing a required library.

While it’s a pleasure to see a Linux build for The Hand of Merlin. There are still some impending issues. But the developer only plans on supporting Ubuntu 20.04. This is interesting, given the launch of the Steam Deck.
Already own the game on Steam? Install the Linux build and launch. If it fails, launch the ./Merin executable via command line in the ~/Steam/steamapps/common/The Hand of Merlin/Bin directory. If the game still fails to launch, email Room C Games. Be sure to also include the ldd ./Merlin output. As well as the associated log file if the game runs but crashes.

The Hand of Merlin – Official Launch Trailer

The Hand of Merlin is a turn-based rogue-lite RPG. Where Arthurian legend clashes with sci-fi horror. Players recruit three mortal heroes on a desperate journey from Albion to Jerusalem. Due to explore richly imagined medieval lands on the brink of apocalypse. An area that is also assaulted by an otherworldly evil. Thanks to the writing of Jonas Kyratzes (The Talos Principle, Serious Sam 4) and Verena Kyratzes (The Lands of Dream, Serious Sam 4). The Hand of Merlin is a story of Arthurian legend. But with an unusual twist that introduces a completely unique sci fi element to its storytelling.

The Hand of Merlin turn-based rogue-lite RPG is playable on Linux and Windows PC. Available from Steam Early Access and Humble Store. Priced at $24.99 USD / £18.99 / 22,49€ .
