While not everyone knows about Tower 57. #Gaming takes place in a dystopian, dieselpunk world. While Megatowers are the only enclaves of civilization. Yet a group of extraordinary individuals gets sent to infiltrate the reclusive Tower 57.
Since we know the basics, a release is expected sometime in #2017. Although, according to #11BitStudios, we do not have a set release date yet. While also facing an issue of no Linux support, let alone a day-one release.
“So the guys are still working on the game and need some more time. I can’t get you the date yet – sometime this summer, probably.
The bad news is that Linux version is not confirmed, and if there will be one – than not on the day one.”
So we already knew about Tower 57 coming to Linux, ideally. And yet it seems as development evolve, we may not even see native support. This is some unexpected news to be honest. Since I was expecting some more positive news since the earlier release details announced last year.
So Tower 57 is a top-down twin stick shooter. All set in a 16-bit inspired pixel art, destructible environments and heavy focus on co-op. While this is a modern take on what made AMIGA games so great. The skills, clips’ capacity & the ability to cooperate will decide their fate.
Tower 57 Features:
- Rich and vibrant pixel art dieselpunk world
- Roster of seven diverse characters with different skillsets and equipment
- Campaign designed for single player & (local/online) co-op playthrough
- Highly destructible environment
- Fast-paced arcade gameplay
Tower 57 has been confirmed for Mac and Windows via Steam & Humble Store at least. So as it stands, Linux gaming for the twin stick shooter is still up in air. While we still do not have a confirmed 2017 release date.
