This guy makes me laugh. Love it. More people need to announce new versions with silly videos.

Also available on Desura.

I purchased a copy while it was on Indie Game Stand and plan on giving it a good go when I can, it does look extremely fun and at £7.19 (or $9.99) it's another game that won't hurt your wallet while providing a lot of play time for that. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Their support for Linux is sorta poor. Lots of unsolved Linux-version only bugs (or not working features known from Windows version) and they dont even try to pretend they bother.
