Press Release - Bold emphasis is mine to point it out.
QuoteHaarlem, The Netherlands – March 10, 2014 – Iceberg Interactive’s two favorite Croation development teams have jumped on Steam’s new flexible policies with significant sale prices today for the deep space simulation Starpoint Gemini 2 and the hectic arcade racer Gas Guzzlers Extreme . Starting at 10 am PST, Monday, March 10, and lasting until Monday, March 17, Iceberg’s Gas Guzzlers Extreme (PC) is on offer with a 60% discount, taking it down to $9.99, while the increasingly popular space sim Starpoint Gemini 2 (PC on Early Access) will receive a 33% discount, with a sale price of $15.40.

Developed by independent Croatian studio Little Green Men Games, Starpoint Gemini 2 is set to enter the Beta stage of its development phase on Steam’s Early Access program during the Game Development Conference (GDC). Iceberg has made it public that entering the Beta will be accompanied by a price increase and the end of the free inclusion of Starpoint Gemini 1, so this Weeklong Sale is really the best opportunity to get into Starpoint Gemini 2 at an advantageous moment.

Starpoint Gemini 2 is an open-world 3D space simulation game that provides powerful RPG mechanics with the frenzy of space combat. Taking place in Gemini, various factions are still fighting for power. Players have control of one ship at a time during the game with direct movement and combat controls as they explore new worlds, trade for greater power, and execute a high level of ship customization. Starpoint Gemini 2 features virtual reality implementation supported by Oculus Rift.

Fellow Croatian Studio Gamepires is working on both a Linux version and two new sets of DLC for Gas Guzzlers Extreme , showing an ongoing commitment to its spectacular combat racing game. Go check it out.

Gas Guzzlers Extreme features a variety of cars, from humble super-minis to full on giant Yank tanks, muscle cars, and more. Players will start with a low performance vehicle and quickly work their way into higher-powered and faster vehicles by earning money via a series of uniquely challenging races from big multiplayer arenas to wild, short-cut ridden race courses.

Iceberg Interactive is an independent video game publisher founded in 2009 by an international group of games industry veterans and is located in Haarlem, The Netherlands. While keeping its roots in the European retail games market, Iceberg has rapidly increased its focus towards the global digital games market, by building strong direct relationships with dozens of Game Portals. Staffed with avid gamers, Iceberg works closely with an international assembly of game developers, both midsize and indie. With a distinct focus on the strategy, action, simulation and adventure game genres, the company has garnered attention with acclaimed releases including Killing Floor, Wings of Prey, APB Reloaded and Endless Space among its 70+ game arsenal - with more promising games in the pipeline.

I look forward to car-battling you online, and I will be playing dirty. Although I think the capture the flag mode using cars with mounted turrets has won me over completely, insane.

The graphics look really decent in it too, along with the racing aspect.

All I wanted was to see a Deathmatch mode in the trailer. Then I saw it. And I was happy. I can finally play Twisted Metal again, and on my own OS! I'll definitely try picking this one up later on. I've missed these kinds of games. Was definitely one of my favorite types when I was younger.

This would be a really really nice surprise, but I am not too sure it will come :-( .
The game is made using directx9 will they really have an OpenGL version ? ( any statement from them ? )
Linux gaming needs a commercial racing game so bad, but up to now there is not even one.

I really hope "90th arcade racer" will show up soon, but I think, whoever will be the first with a goodracing game will sell a lot of copys of his game as there is really is a big need for this in the linux market.

Quoting: GuestWhoever made that video must be blind… But anyway yeah I like racing games too. Not with weapons though*.

    (edit) Now that I think about it, I did have fun with one or two futuristic racing games with weapons a long time ago… So I might like this one too.
well this game has a few modes with weapons and without like "classic race".

As it is available for Windows on Desura, can we expect a DRM-free version for Linux on Desura too?

Any news about this one?

"Seems" like the press release above is not listed anymore:

Press releases between Feb. and April. 2014.

Me idiot bought the game back then to support the devs/publisher. Yeah, my bad. :D

However, how about a new category for developers/publishers that promised a Linux release but did not deliver?
