Update: The developer told me on Twitter that the game has been delayed until May 23rd.

Geneshift [Steam, Official Site], previously known as Subvein: Mutant Factions, a top-down shooter with vehicles will officially launch on April 27th (Early Access) and they also have a demo now too.

Check out the shiny new trailer:

I've tested the demo out myself and it is flawless for me on Arch! It seems to perform well and it has pretty decent multi-monitor support too. It actually displays on my correct monitor and has plenty of options to tweak to your liking.

The demo has a limited part of the campaign to play and some online servers to join, so you can give it a good test before the release this month.

About the game
Geneshift is a top-down shooter bursting with brutal gunplay and insane vehicle action. Unlock mutant skills and outplay your friends in tactical online combat. Then play the co-op campaign to discover unlocks, battle zombies, and as always - save the world.

If you do try it, be sure to let me know what you think! Might be a game to play during livestreams if there's enough interest. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

doesn't seem to be a option to use a controller rather than the keyboard in the options menu [i might of been missing something] so i couldn't play it to its fullest

I started the game with my Steam Controller switched on and the game seemed to work just fine using it, despite there being no obvious option to select a controller.
