Releasing late this year, Industrial Petting sounds like a pretty amusing game. With single-player and drop-in online multi-player, it will have you (and maybe friends) supply the galaxy with weird creatures.

You have always dreamed of becoming a pet engineer on the edge of the galaxy, and now you can live that dream! With your orbital pet elevator landed on a distant world, it's time to tame the local wildlife, and build more of them.

After asking about Linux support on the Steam forum, since it appeared with SteamOS/Linux system requirements. The developer replied with "Yep! Getting a linux release, and currently have linux testers on Ubuntu." which is awesome to see.

Pretty excited about this, could happily see myself losing plenty of hours to it.

You can wishlist/follow it on Steam. Just remember to set your platform preferences, it really can help.

Seems interesting. Vaguely reminds me of Slime Rancher but with multiplayer, which is a big draw, as it might appeal to the friend I usually play with who's always looking for a new game to try.

That's the sorta feeling I got from it too.

Just added it to the wishlist. I found this blurb on the Steam page which I thought was pretty funny:
QuoteThe galaxy demands ethically sourced, fair trade exotic pets, and you're the one to supply it. With a certified joy-detecting space elevator, only creatures that are happy, fed, and comfortable can be exported to the market. Farm local produce and make extravagent meals to charm the creatures, or just give them a little bit of personal attention.
Can't wait to see people being economically incentivized to make things happy, fed, and comfortable no matter how they personally feel about them. :D

So cute! I loved Slime Rancher so it looks like this one might be right up my alley!
