This would have been posted sooner, but the Linux version was broken, I got in touch with the developers and they promptly fixed it!

Has anyone checked this out yet, what are your thoughts?

Personally for me it's still a little confusing as the UI still needs a little work in showing you what to do at the start. You are sent right into the game without so much as a welcome screen.

It does offer up some fun customization that you can do on your mech units with different classes to chose that have different weapons, to completely changing the camouflage colours and type of camouflage your unit has, what do you think to mine?

It's disgustingly awesome.

The game does show some serious promise, all the basics needed to make a great mech game are there they just need to tweak little bits, I've sent my feedback to them in the hopes they pick up on a few of my minor items.

You can buy the game here for $14.99 and get access to the beta with that too. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I read about this game sometime ago, I like it but I hope it has more game modes and not only killing arenas.
