Phoning Home, the story of two robots trying to survive will come to Linux

By - | Views: 14,508
Phoning Home [Steam], which sounded a lot like the film WALL-E when I first heard about it will come to Linux.

Your robot actually has similarities to WALL-E, not that it's a bad thing (it looks cool!). Anyway, feast your eyes on this trailer and tell me you're not excited!

Marko Dieckmann, founder, ION LANDSPhoning Home's enormous open-world is full of surprises and provides players a true sense of adventure. This combination of exploration and survival games will keep gamers on their toes as they embark on a journey like none other.

From the press release I got sent, it seems it will be released on Windows next month, with Linux (and Mac) coming at "at a later date".

I replied to stride pr who sent me the email to me, but I've waited 5 days without a response now so here we are. Article taken from

Some nice outdoor graphics, but this trailer doesn’t show much gameplay if at all so no idea how it will play!

"I'm not excited."

Happy now that you made me lie?

The robots may have suckered me into a purchase. As long as it's not a walking simulator.

Ooh, please tell me this has co-operative multi-player! This looks like it'd be fun to play with a friend.

Two robots are trying to survive; that sounds like Cave Story. ;-)

I like the sound of it. Good to see something a bit different! Will have to wait and see what it's like.

It looks nice. I hope they will really release the Linux (and Mac) version.
I'm kind of tired of this nowadays.
