Witch It is the hide and seek game is available on Windows but could see a Linux release. So we reached out Hamburg-based developer Barrel Roll Games’ for further details. We have a surprising reply.
So the whole concept with Witch It is a straight up hide and seek. Since the games multiplayer primarily. Well you can imagine why Witch It has solda 100,000 units, since its Steam Early Access release in May 2017.
Therefore, Barrel Roll Games has been marketing the game on its own. Also managing to grow a significant fanbase through video content creators, mainly in Europe. Since Witch It appears in the Humble Daedalic Bundle 2018. That means the games available if you beat the $8.19 USD average. Which is great, seeing the Steam page $14.99 USD. Daedalic is also making the game more visible in North America.
“We do want to support Linux, but we don’t have a concrete time schedule yet.
However, we are working on the port to UE 4.19 and after our first checks, the open gl shaders seem to work properly now. This is one step forward to the Linux version.”
So this is the reply directly from Barrel Roll Games. Since there is no release date yet. The possibility of seeing a Linux release is quite good.
Since the games been in Early Access for over a year. It would be impressive to see Witch It on Linux. And the game still holds a 90% Positive average on Steam. Which would mark another great Unreal Engine 4 debut.
For those of you who do not know, Witch It is a multiplayer. Okay, it’s actually a cool “Hide & Seek” game of two competing teams. Where brave hunters seek hidden witches in a humorous, magical world. There are currently three game modes: ‘Hide & Seek’ – hunters have to find all the witches to win the game. ‘Mobification’ – Catched witches turn into hunters; and ‘Hunt a Hag’ – skills are disabled for both teams and hunters can only use their melee weapon.
As previously mentioned, the release is available on Steam Early Access and Humble Store for $14.99 USD. But right now, the best deal for Witch It is in the appearance in Humble Daedalic Bundle 2018, $8.19 USD at the time of writing.
