Ziggurat is back, and now it’s even better. Since you can use powerful weapons and spells to break through hordes of enemies. All while exploring labyrinth like dungeons in this hectic roguelite FPS. So you can improve your skills and discover new equipment. Due to arrive on Steam Early Access on October 22nd. Which is certainly now far off.
Originally the Ziggurat 2 Steam page only showed Mac and Windows PC. But it seems they have now added Linux into the mix. We also reached out to Milkstone Studios, who also promises support.
Initially we weren’t going to add Linux support right away. Because usually we don’t test these versions as much and they may show unexpected bugs with the Unity engine.
However, we’ve received a nice amount of requests for it. So we’ve changed our mind and we’ll add Linux support from the beginning. We hope to fix any bugs that may arise.
This certainly puts pressure on Milkstone Studios. Having to manage fixes and bugs for the game on Linux. So chances are the 6-9 months of Early Access will lend to some issues with Ziggurat 2. That being said, the studio doesn’t “test these [Linux] versions as much and they may show unexpected bugs.” Therefore, this will put more responsibility on the community to report legit bugs. Not to mention the developers for fixes.
