Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy announces the Scavenger Hunt plus we have the games Linux support update. Thanks to feedback from developer Ludomotion. Who are also running a crowdfunding campaign on Fig. Which does not have a pledge goal, but a roadmap.
Ludomotion is delighted to announce the Scavenger Hunt update. Due to launch next week as part of the Open Access Fig campaign for Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy. Since the base $25 pledge tier comes with Alpha access.
Released as a milestone reward, the update will give backers of the roguelite action-RPG a chance to embark on a quest to find one of five hidden statues. Players who are first to find one of the statues will have their adventure immortalised in the final game. The hunt starts next Wednesday, 14 August, at 1PM PT / 10PM CEST / 9PM BST. The game should also work just fine via Wine on Linux.
More details of the Scavenger Hunt update can be found here.
The game is being build in Unity, so a Linux port should be easy enough.
So this is some good news for Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy. Mind you the studio is unable to confirm day one support in 2020. But it’s also a bit early to tell. Ludomotion is positive about Linux. Which is also a fine reason to support the Fig campaign.
