Achron is a sweet time travel based RTS game available natively on Linux and has been for a long time now, they have a history of great support too with yet another update.

This release 1.6.2.0 is mainly an important bug-fix release to make it more stable, but it does include two new game related features:
  • Added toggle for hearing sounds through fog of war to pre-game lobby
  • Added more anisotropic filtering options to graphics settings in menu
Full changelog available here.

When picking it up years ago I found it highly confusing, it seems you do need to be quite patient with it and spend a bit of time messing about to learn it properly.

I really need to do a video to show this off under Linux, so look out for that in a GOL video in future!

We also have a Release Calendar, be sure to check it out.

There is no Linux demo so I tried the (old) Windows demo with Wine, but it just crashed.
