    The game seems still in early access, and it's currently available on Steam and Nintendo Switch. It looks to me like a good PS2 like game, in a positive way. I believe this game deserves a DRM-free, clientless PC release. Hopefully it's easily ported also to GNU/Linux but that's likely wishful thinking. Who knows.

  • Thanks for the suggestion.

    We contacted them but they're not interested at the moment.
