The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act 3 support update for the game on Linux with Mac and Windows PC. According to recent details from developer Soma Games. Which is already live on Steam.
The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act 3 takes place in a story-rich world of Mossflower. Doing so in the first official Redwall story since 2011. “The Scout” is a linear action adventure game in three acts. Where you play as Liam or Sophia, the newest member of the Lilygrove Scout Corps. So as the young mice find themselves on the journey of a lifetime to save their home from ruthless pirates.

That is the premise behind The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act 3. It’s a cost effective story that is due to captivate players and fans of the series. However, there has been a chance since our last post about the game.
Unfortunately, it was decided that if we want to do this right. The studio does not have the resources to be able to create a quality port of the game and support its long tail like we do with our other ports. We don’t have enough developers to fix all of the Linux specific bugs that will come up. And to make any and all necessary tweaks to ensure the The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act 3 port will run with exceptional quality on Linux distros. The last thing we want to do is make a shoddy, quickly-baked port that suffers in performance or quality compared to the others and is littered with bugs that don’t get fixed.
We, too, wish that we had the resources at the moment to support development of an excellent port. But as of now there will be no plans to create a Linux port for The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act 3. Thanks for reaching out and starting this conversation and thank you for your understanding! The decision is in no way meaning to slight or neglect the Linux community. We just want to make sure that any project we tackle is done with excellence. And we don’t want to give them an inferior, unsupported port
This is the email directly from developer Soma Games. Which is a bit different than our previous post. But the studio is honest about bugs and releasing a quality port. It’s just sad that Linux gets the axe for a Unity 3D game, despite having a Mac and Windows PC build. At the same time, The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act 3 may run well via Proton. So that is still an option. Currently, Act 1 does have Platinum support.
So this is end result for The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act 3. Which is available now for both Mac and Windows PC via Steam. Sadly no Linux support will take place, but Proton is an option. Priced at just $9.99 USD / £7.19 / 8,19€.
