Earth 2160, the RTS game looks like it's getting a Linux version on Steam

Earth 2160 is a game from quite a few years ago now, but it's a classic strategy game. Looks like someone has begun bringing it over to Linux too.

It popped up on SteamDB today:

383399/config/language: english
383399/config/oslist: linux
383399/name: Earth 2160 Linux English


In October of 2015 they released a Wine wrapped version for Mac, so it's probable we are getting the same treatment here. Nothing is confirmed though.

About the game
After the destruction of the EARTH in 2150, the leaders of the Eurasian Dynasty escaped on board an evacuation fleet. Now they are fighting for the survival of the human species. Their base is one large building comprising of smaller variable parts. The Lunar Corporation is already on the Red Planet and has to fight to find a new base and home after the destruction of the Earth. LC buildings are built one on top of the other, similar to a skyscraper, but with one big difference - they have the ability to defy all the laws of gravity to move quickly to a new location.

Quoting: TheBossIt's obviously not an issue if these updates on SteamDB are from today.

That is not how this works. If a company request insolvency proceedings then it doesn't mean that ALL activity stops from this point on. Target of these proceedings is to get the company back on track and liquid again. Only if the company is in to bad shape then it will be terminated. However as part of these proceedings not so profitable activities can and will be canceled, which could affect the release of Earth 2160 for Linux. But we will see what will happen.

That would be great! I would like to see EARTH 2140 on Steam as well.
