Helltaker Linux

Vanripper (Lukasz Piskorz) has announced that free to play puzzle-dating sim Helltaker is now available on Linux, and Steam OS.

Launching on May 11th, the game is a fusion of visual novel dating sim and puzzle game. You have entered hell for one purpose- to create a harem from cute demon girls.

Play through navigation based puzzles with limited moves, and attempt to reach multiple demon girls at the end. These puzzles can be skipped if you desire.

Once you reach them, you make moves of an entirely different nature to woo the demon girl, based on her tastes. Though you may end up getting killed if you answer the wrong way.

The game is free to play. While concept art can be unlocked in game, players can unlock it all from the beginning and support the developer for $9.99. This also grants the artist’s notes, and a recipe for the game’s chocolate french crêpes.

You can find the announcement trailer from the developer below.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

You woke up one day with a dream. Harem full of demon girls. You’ve opened the portal in hopes of fulfilling your wildest desires. Hellfire burns through your lungs, death awaits around every corner and everything looks like from a cutesy mobile game. You are in hell.


  • Traverse hell in search of love.
  • Win the hearts of horrible demon girls.
  • Kick adorable skeletons around.
  • Solve puzzles as efficiently as possible.
  • Or just skip puzzles in the menu.
  • Try to not get murdered by demon girls.
  • Get murdered by demon girls anyway.

Helltaker is available for Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (all via Steam). It is free to play.
