Daedalic Entertainment just released their brand new co-op focused competitive RTS, A Year Of Rain, into Early Access and they confirm that a Linux version is a high priority.

A Year Of Rain is a traditional RTS in the style of others like Starcraft, Warcraft and plenty more featuring a mix of base building, resource gathering, unit recruiting and of course lots of battles.

Speaking on Steam, their team said this just before release:

Yea, let me apologize for the team. We just couldn't get the Linux and Mac version ready for the Release Day. But it is high on our Roadmap! We'll share a Roadmap for everyone to see later.

That Roadmap is now up, with a clear "TOP Priority Roadmap" section that has both Linux and macOS support. When you actually go onto it, the expanded details do make it clear that both platforms were given careful thought when they started working on the game. The Linux version is almost there and they're hoping to have both up in a few weeks.

Feature Highlight:

  • The ultimate Team RTS. Play together across all game modes
  • Ambitious campaign, designed for co-op experience
  • A 2v2 skirmish mode that is truly designed for team play
  • Unique asymmetric 2v2 multiplayer mode “Against All Odds”: Two heroes face two entire armies! (To be added during Early Access)
  • Three unique factions: House Rupah, the Wild Banners and the Restless Regiment
  • Compelling, multi-layered story spanning all factions
  • Elaborate, stylized art
  • Powerful iconic heroes to lead your army
  • Soundtrack by award-winning composer Neal Acree

Wait and see... many Linux promises were not actually followed with actual native ports.

Daedalic Entertainment is very Linux friendly, I love them! If they said it's going to be release on Linux, with all the games they have released on Linux already, you can be pretty much sure they will.

Oops - wasn't aware it's Daedalic! Hope they still will make point and click adventures...!

This art style and game type is getting me like dangling a shiny in front of a kitty. This is going high up on my radar.

Let me know when the Linux version drops I'm totally buying it. I hope it plays as good as it looks because then I might find something SC-BWish but new and refreshed without any of the Activision taint.

The Steam reviews are "mixed", but I wishlisted anyway to encourage them to release the Linux version.

Seems like the typical teething issues for an in-development game.
