The Signal From Tölva is the just announced game from Big Robot, the developers of Sir, You Are Being Hunted which supports Linux. Our platform was missing, so I reached out to them to ask what's up.

I spoke to Jim from Big Robot about how Linux was missing from their announcements, the answer was short and sweet:
QuoteWe can't confirm Linux yet, but it's possible and likely.

It has already been in development for two years, and it's due out early next year.

As an FPS fan and a lover of space/sci-fi this game looks like I will enjoy the crap out of it. I really do hope they don't have any issues supporting Linux, as I would love to play it.

About the game
In the distant future, star-faring robotic factions sift through the ruins of an ancient civilisation. On the highlands of Tölva, beneath the shadow of abandoned war machines, they found something.

Was it the source of the signal you were so interested in? And will the trail lead to enlightenment, or something more sinister? You hijack a drone and you begin the search for yourself.

The Signal From Tölva is a journey into a wild science fiction landscape, filled with danger and beauty: you must survive terrible hazards, navigate through impossible spaces, and fight an ongoing battle to control this haunted, blighted world. You will make use of a range of powerful tools to overcome your enemies and uncover secrets: hack robots to battle alongside you, equip powerful weapons, and detonate savage defence systems.

Oh wow, they really amped up the production value since "Sir, Your Are Being Hunted"! It looks absolutely great! I'm also really hoping Linux won't prove problematic as this looks really, really interesting to me.

This reminds me borderland as for the game play, however it looks great can't wait to see some tests and surely buy it.

Bit random this but not often you see an Icelandic word in a game. (Tölva = Number Prophetess == computer)

Yeah wow what a step up from Sir[...] this is! You Are Being Hunted was never my cup of tea but this one here looks absolutely fantastic. Here's hoping there actually is a solid story too, but again... Wow.

I really like the mechanics of "Sir..."
I just think it takes a bit long. Too many artifact thingies to find.

Something about the environment reminds me of Halo.

I couldn't put my finger on it, but that nails it!

I'm feeling less than lazy today so let's see, they're both:

- flanked by jutting stone cliffs
- low grass with sparse tree distribution
- large rocks embedded in much of the environment
- mysterious alien megastructures

That, coupled with a high tech shootout taking place, conjures up the same atmosphere that Halo had. Although the gameplay looks a lot like Sir, You Are Being Hunted. I look forward to a Linux release.
