SnowCastle Games is a Indie company based out of Oslo, Norway. They began production of
Festival of Magic,
an original adventure role-playing game in which the players must fight and farm their way to glory. Join Amon, a desert scavenger and his reluctant companion Gnart, as they unravel the ancient mysteries of Umbra – a world divided by light and magic.
The game combines turn-based combat and farming gameplay with exploration and puzzle-packed quests. Grow spuds, tend barnacles and use your harvest as powerful ammunition and spells; load your weapons, team up your companions and get ready for an epic adventure.
Now if you don’t know who SnowCastle Games are they made a great game for IOS called Hogworld which I might add got them on Apples Appstore top list back in 2011. That should say alot.

When they said on there Steam Greenlight page that they would support Linux I gave it a massive yes and a follow. I then decided to do some research on the game and thought this might be too good to be true situation. So i checked out there site and no indication was given about any sort of Linux support until, I came across the beta sign up page where it clearly states Linux as a beta platform. I instantly signed up for the beta and see if I even have a chance to get on the beta for Linux. I was all over that like some fat kid on some sort of sweet candy like product. You can also sign up too for the Dec 2013 Beta here. This game is a RPG to watch and hopefully get my hands on very soon. Game On.
