Veil of Dust: A Homesteading farm RPG game port is coming for Linux with Windows PC. Thanks to the support and commitment of developer Calamity Bay Games. Available now via Steam Early Access.

Veil of Dust: A Homesteading game is releasing into early access last week. And will also include the complete central storyline and one romance storyline. Including upgrades to the homestead and all major features. While giving players a full path through the 25-35 hour game on Windows PC. However, the Linux build is in progress.

We’re in the process of troubleshooting our Linux build (we had a little trouble with our IDE updating at the last minute and breaking our Linux export process). We expect it out soon.

Since Veil of Dust: A Homesteading is on its way. The actual Linux release is still TBD. The game is being developed in GameMaker Studio 2, which has a primary focus on Ubuntu Linux. But should work on other distro’s, ideally. If not…. Proton.
