Love insects and other creepy crawlies? Hive Quest might be a game you will enjoy, one that's coming to Linux and it's now crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
Inspired partially by the classic Black & White from Lionhead Studios, it's not meant to be graphically impressive. In fact, the developer opted to go for a more retro 3D look with it. Gameplay involves you managing a tribe, along with gathering resources like food to keep them going. It's a bit of an odd one, due to the mix of gameplay involved. It blends a strategy game with puzzles, exploration and a little mystery wrapped in an ancient magical theme with insects and spirits.
They're seeking £14,000 and it seems they've had quite a slow start to the campaign, with less than £500 pledged so far. Still 28 days to go, so it may pick up yet.
It's only mentioning a Windows demo on the Kickstarter page, weirdly, but if you head to Indie DB the Linux demo is available and it does work as I previously tested it. The game is coming to Linux though of course, that's confirmed across the Kickstarter and the press kit.
