Trifox action adventure support based on demand for Linux with Windows PC. According to details from developer Glowfish Interactive. Due to work its way onto Steam in 2022.
Publisher Big Sugar and developer Glowfish Interactive are eager to announce Trifox. Due to make its way onto Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. However, we do not see any further details for Linux support. So we reached out to Glowfish Interactive hoping for an update. There is also a Discussions post from almost a year ago asking for a Linux build. Here’s what they said:
We are using Unity to make the game and haven’t confirmed yet on the Linux side of things.
Will most likely depend if there is enough demand for it.
While Trifox gets my attention both for gameplay and art style. The use of Unity 3D does make porting the game to Linux easier. However, it’s also a bit frustrating when dev’s want to seek enough demand from the community. This seems more like fishing for pre-sales.
That being said, I did play the Demo available on Steam. Which does play well using Proton 6.3-4. Putting pre-sale fishing aside, the Demo does help motivate interest to throw some Tux Love or a +1. The gameplay is certainly interesting. And looks very sharp on Linux. But don’t take my work for it, try it for yourself. Also note, a game controller works well and is the best choice for gameplay.
