wytchwood crafting adventure game may be proton only for linux with the windows pc build

Wytchwood crafting adventure game may be Proton only for Linux with the Windows PC build. According to recent details from developer Alientrap. Due to release very soon on Steam and GOG.

Wytchwood is a crafting adventure game taking place in a land of gothic fables and fairytales. As the old witch of the woods, explore a strange countryside, and collect magic ingredients. Then brew sorcerous spells, and pass judgement upon a quirky cast of characters.

Now that you know the plot, Wytchwood developer Alientrap has announced the launch date, December 9th. So far the platform support simply shows Windows PC. Reaching out to the developer, here is the email reply:

A native Linux port is possible but won’t be ready in time for release – we’ll make sure Proton works though. It’s Unity.

Yeah, so the reply is leaning towards Wytchwood with Proton. While the Linux port is still “possible”, the Unity 3D is not due for a day one release. Looking through the Discussion comments, the developer seems unsure about Linux. Still stating that it’s “possible” but not fully committing to a native build. Despite Proton offering some support, it would be best to keep casting your votes or +1. It’s a Unity game, so porting should be straight forward.
