Moon Rising is a Turn Based Strategy game based on the Moon! Thankfully they are planning a full single player as well so it won't be another multiplayer only game!

The developers sent this tweet across to let us know it's coming soon-ish!

Awesome news!

You begin with a Headquarters capable of producing various units from Astronauts to Terraformers. With these you must capture more buildings and outwit your opponent through a number of game types. Besides the Headquarters, there are two types of building in Moon Rising - Solar Station and the Refinery.

Capturing Solar Stations will give you more power, enabling you to move your units further each turn. The Refinery generates more income with which to produce the aforementioned units. Simple. Article taken from

A year or two from now, I wonder how many games on Steam will have a Linux version?
Too bad THQ went defunct, I would have loved to see their lineup of IPs get some Linux loving.

The graphics theme in this game remindsme a lot of Shadowgrounds 1 (finished it and loved it). I am intrigued :)
