The Waylanders releases the party based RPG game. Currently in Steam Early Access containing a portion of the Celtic Age of the game. While including 10 to 12 hours of the planned 40 hour adventure. Players can explore more than 8 unique locations with over 40 maps to visit. As development continues, the team plans to release periodic updates. And also including gameplay changes until the final launch. A roadmap will be released later this month.
Of course there is also the matter of Linux support. And developer Gato Salvaje Studio issued this reply on Steam.
We want to be honest with this question. Currently, The Waylanders is not available for Linux. And it won’t be available during the Early Access. We are valuing the possibility of releasing a Linux version in the future. As we did with our previous games.
So the good news here. The other games from Gato Salvaje all have Linux support. And The Waylanders does run well using Proton 5-09 as well. There is a moment where I saw a black screen, then the game loaded. That being said it looks like we will have to wait until post release support. Due to get a full launch “sometime between late 2020 and early 2021.”
