Back in 2011 we were talking about Cradle as the latest Unigine Engine game and it was expected to launch in 2012 with Linux support. Three years later, this game has finally launched on Steam with Linux support.

There sadly hadn't been too much progress on Unigine games lately with their VR and simulator business apparently working out well to keep the company going and developing Unigine 2. However, it's a delight to see now that Cradle has finally materialized by one of their licensees. The last we had heard of Cradle was back in 2013.

Cradle was released on Friday, 24 July, and is self-described as "a sci-fi first-person-view quest designed for the player to explore the surrounding world. The story is built around the relations of the protagonist and a mechanical girl who by quirk of fate found themselves amidst the desert."

This game for Windows and SteamOS/Linux can be bought for $13 USD. If you want to learn more about this Unigine-powered game, visit the Steam Store.
