If you weren't aware already Worms W.M.D is heading to Linux (we have this confirmed). This new trailer has me pretty excited.

It certainly looks like the type of game we need for our livestreaming. It looks silly and exciting, exactly what Worms should be. The bit where the worm screams in terror at the TNT actually cracked me up!

About the game (Official)

True Hedgewars is free but Worms is way better + it has the nostalgic bonus because i played worms in my childhood :>

Definitely getting it :)

Might pick this up once its on sale, just because of the nostalgic feeling.
It will ofcourse never replace the old worms games, but it runs on linux ^^.

It looks way better than Clan Wars, which was quite half baked if you ask me.
Hedgewars has some great features going for it, and I really like how it's playing. But at the same time, well a good old Worms is still a treat nevertheless. I play both and I'm fine with it. How lucky, two great games on Linux!

I've all Worms games on Steam (except World Party Remastered), and I prefer Hedgewars than their recent games (Armageddon is still awesome).

I hope it will have cross-platform multiplayer

I don't think I've played any worms game since the first one. Apart from different weapons and stuff, this looks like more of the same. And for once that's not a bad thing. :) Why break something that works? Of course there's all kinds of newfangled on-line multiplayer stuff and the graphics are nicer, but that's irrelevant. Local multiplayer is where the fun is.

But I'll have to finally try hedgewars at some point, thanks for reminding me guys.
