Tunche a charming, hand-drawn return of 2D beat em up for Linux, Mac and Windows on Kickstarter. The games developer LEAP Game Studios mixes in roguelike elements. Also, 4-player co-op with a dash of shaman witchcraft in the crowdfunding campaign. And at the time of writing, already 30% funded.

So the other day I was flipping through Kickstarter games. Tunche had just launched, but alas, no Linux support outlined. Reaching out to LEAP Game Studios seems to prove otherwise.

Linux Support:

“We plan to release the game on Linux, Mac and Windows on the same day. We use Unity :)”

So this is indeed good news. Both in the use of Unity 3D and the day-one release for Linux. Which is coming sometime in December 2019.
Which leads me to believe the release will have a more realistic Q1 2020 debut.

Tunche is a 2D beat’em up that tells a mysterious story. One also based on a legend of Peruvian folklore. While the game itself combines hand-drawn animation with risky roguelite gameplay. Not to mention some fast-paced combat.

Tunche creates an unfortgettable experience of fighting through hordes of monsters. While player crawl deeper into the Amazonian jungle. Go solo or form a team of up to 4 players. Then you can all take on the journey. One that creates new challenges every time you play. This is what has my attention with the gameplay.
