The Last Friend is a beat ‘em up and tower defense to save dogs on Windows PC, but is also coming to Linux. Thanks to recent details from developer The Stonebot Studio. Due to make it’s way onto both Steam and Humble Store.
As soon as I saw the graphics and art style behind The Last Friend, the gameplay is bound to be good. With doggo expert, T. Juan, to help coach players on their journey through the wastelands. Due to launch on Windows PC and consoles later this year, The Last Friend is a genre bending mix between Beat ‘Em Up and Tower Defense. But believe it or not, a Linux build is also in the plans.
…we are using Unity as an engine. And we will port to Linux.
Since the use of Unity 3D is no surprise. The developers also mention this will not be a day one release. Seeing they have “so many ports we have to work on” right now. This means The Last Friend will be “ported after the game release.”
The developers are planning to have 3 major releases. The good thing about this is “that we will probably add exclusive content to certain platforms.” Which is another win for Linux players.
