Kinetic Void 3D Space Adventure Will Be Heading To Linux
Posted , 26 March 2013 at 8:05 pm UTC / 2321 views
Kinetic Void is a 3D space adventure with a focus on customization and enjoyable space simulation. The game is one of the few in Steam's new Early Access section (meaning it's early in development).

So this has everything I like in a game, it's space themed, I can build a ship and fly it around and with good visuals as well, this game is full of "win".

Their F.A.Q clearly states it will be heading to Linux!
QuoteQ: What operating system does KV run on?
A: We are developing on Unity3d, and will be deploying to Windows, OSX, and Linux.



Features:
  • Fully detailed and customizable space ships.
  • Hundreds of weapons and modules of multiple sizes
  • Fully customizable and adaptable controls for mouse, keyboard, and joystick.
  • Huge procedurally generated galaxy, limited only by your computers capabilities.
  • Randomized factions and political standings.
  • Open world sandbox, you are in control of your fate.
  • Detailed economy simulation with resources, trade routes and more.
  • Epic space combat.
  • Toggleable Newtonian Flight
  • Emergent gameplay.
Looking forward to seeing this one come to Linux. There has been a delay in the Linux version thanks to the "Scaleform" which they are moving away from:
QuoteWe ran into some problems with the Mac and Linux client using scaleform, so we are changing to another UI framework. I have been working on the UI all day, I hope to have it up and running soon.

We are NOT switching from Unity.

Hey all, thanks for the mention. I am Sean the lead developer of KV, we are working on a UI overhaul right now and hope to have it ready within the next two weeks, after that we will be pushing our Linux build live on Steam.
