Ethan Lee, a talented and prolific programmer who is responsible for porting more than thirty indie games to GNU/Linux/macOS platforms, announced yesterday that he is working on PC versions of Charlie Murder and The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile. Mr. Lee said that most of the work is already complete (he just finished adding online multiplayer functionality to both titles yesterday) and that PC gamers may enjoy Ska Studios’ beloved action titles really soon, on December of this year, or January 2017 at the latest. Both games will support Linux, macOS and Windows at launch, and will include online multiplayer, Steam achievements and leaderboards.
Strangely enough, this isn’t the first time that The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile graces the platform, as a Russian hacker created an unofficial port in 2013. Back then, some indie studios didn’t have the budget or the time to do PC versions of successful XBLA titles, something that is no longer a concern thanks to the rise of talented and helpful individuals such as Mr. Lee.
