The Wandering Village city-builder funding succeeds for Windows PC, but Linux and Mac due in testing. According to details from developers Stray Fawn Studio. Closing out their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.
The Wandering Village is a city-builder on the back of a giant, wandering creature. While focusing on players building a symbiotic relationship with their giant host. The game has been announced to launch into Early Access on Windows PC. Due to arrive in the second half of 2021.
The developers launched a Kickstarter campaign. While allowing people to get exclusive rewards. All to support further development of The Wandering Village. The €30,000 campaign goal was fully funded in less than 24 hours. Closing out funding with 6,491 backers pledging €155,964 ($184,783 USD) on November 13th.
Also, support for Linux and Mac will be looked at during Alpha testing.
We would love to bring The Wandering Village to as many platforms as possible. But at this point in time we can’t promise it.
We will evaluate Mac and Linux support when we’re closer to the alpha testing phase. Where we can test it together with some players.
So the missing detail here, the game engine is Unity 3D. Therefore, the odds of seeing a Linux build is likely. BUT… to be on the safe side, this post is here to support the game. But also inspire Wishlist support on Steam.
