Neuroslicers from developer Dream Harvest seems like a very interesting title. A narrative driven, online competitive cyberpunk RTS and it will be coming to Linux.
NeuroSlicers is a genre-defying highly tactical, narrative driven, online competitive cyberpunk arena based real-time strategy game. With AI powered units and battle board manipulation at its core, Failure offers a set of truly fresh challenges for both the seasoned competitive player as well as those looking for a truly fresh narrative driven strategy gaming experience.
I actually discovered it on IndieDB some time ago. I reached out to the developer who didn't get my message for a while. Today, they replied to note that it will have a Linux version and their testers have been playing the Linux builds for a while.
For a small early look at it, see their below trailer:
They do have some much more recent videos on it, like this much longer video from a recent livestream and it honestly looks quite amazing.
- Focusing on fast, macro driven gameplay, arena based maps and a multiplayer driven narrative.
- Control clever AI powered units.
- Use powerful hacking abilities that allow you to manipulate the battle boards.
- Spawn advanced weaponry and buildings that allow you to take over the network one data node at time.
It's not due for quite a while, with it still being in development and their currently scheduled release date isn't until 2020. It's currently in the alpha stages and so a lot of it is undergoing changes. I'm going to be follow it more closely now it's confirmed. I should hopefully be able to test once it reaches a proper closed-Alpha next Spring.
