1C Entertainment is happy to announce their collaboration with indie developers Acid Man Games and Fire Plant Games. Due to bring their upcoming old school FPS, Viscerafest into Early access next year.

While the Steam Discussion post does show a hint of good news. In reality, the developers “may be able to do it [Linux] at the launch of early access.” The problem is they are not “entirely confident in saying it’ll be 100% ready by that point”. But since Unity 3D is being used for development “it is doable”.
Likewise, it would be a pleasure to support. Kicking off the Early Access release with a build in Linux gaming.

The game was originally revealed at Realms Deep 2020. Viscerafest is a sci-fi fantasy single player arena FPS. Where players take the role of Caroline, a bloodthirsty, psychopathic mercenary. Who also wants nothing more than to marry her boyfriend Athens Fetter. But the problem is the money’s tight. Since rings aren’t exactly cheap. But thankfully there may be hope for her yet. As a warlock named Cromune has acquired a rather hefty bounty on his head.
