Might be worth mentioning that this game will be on Steam too. It has been greenlit, but there´s no release date though.

I'm going to wishlist this one for now, but I will play it when I have time for it, no doubt. My kind of game for sure.

Anybody knows if the soundtrack is available somewhere, perchance?

Yup, and it's been available for purchase and play in the Ubuntu Software Store for almost a week. I was gonna buy it there, but decided I'd just wait for reviews and purchase it at a later date on Steam; even though I should probably do it on Desura.

I know Desura isn't making a Linux Console or anything, but they have more games for Linux than Steam and even some AAA titles like Freespace 2 and Fallout. I actually bought FS2 the other day from there, they include the Open Source version as well. Works great actually. Not to mention, on Desura, they also offer the Free games like M.A.R.S and some FPS.

I wish Steam would let some of the Free games on there to build up Linux titles.

This particular title is attractive looking, indeed!

In regards to where I would choose to buy it, Desura is my main service, with most of my games.  When it comes to free games, I guess I'm pretty satisfied with Desura having plenty of titles that don't make it onto Steam.  There is room for both to exist, and Desura can double down on it's strategy of inclusiveness and variety.  

Of course, there is a host of improvements Desura can make to it's service which would make me like it better, but I'm already a fan.  I suppose it could benefit from a recommendation system and facilitation of some co-op features (i.e., something similar to Steamplay) as well as improvements to it's Accolades system (to make it easy for devs to plumb their Achievement system through it, and reduce the work necessary to keep a Desura and Steam build in sync).

What would make me happiest would be improvements on the client for cross-platform delivery of community modding content along with paid DLCs (which are available, now, but only on a handful of games).  I think that could tie into the ModDB community pretty well, even though the services are somewhat separate, following the Linden acquisition.

I quite like the variety of oddities available on Desura, and it's clear that Valve hasn't figured out how to monetize completely free content (free-to-play, a la TF2, yes... free as in beer? Not so much).  In fact, other than ad revenues on the website proper, I'm not really sure how Desura is monetizing free content.

This game is decent. You can def tell it was a port from a mobile app. Just the way the button layout is. Its pretty good for what it is though. I bought it on the ubuntu software center. I will buy it again once it hits steam.

I don't think Desura gets any money from its free games; I think the main point behind them is to simply expand their catalogue and make the service look more attractive as a whole.
