I love RTS games and 8-Bit Armies looks really awesome, the developers have talked about a Linux version, but there's so solid answer. It's time to show how many people want it.

The developer said this on the Steam forum:
QuoteWe talked about making a Linux-compatible version, but no decision has been made either way yet.


If you like the look of it, I suggest posting your support in there. I think we really need more real-time strategy games like this, we have a lack of them. We have a fair few turn based strategy games, but not many like this.

It reminds me a bit of early Westwood games like Red Alert, I love the style.

About the game (From Steam)
8-Bit Armies is a retro Real-Time Strategy game for the PC. With a colorful, blocky voxel art style, 8-Bit Armies is Petroglyph's most fast-paced, friendly, and accessible RTS game to date. Collect resources, build up and defend your base, amass your army of military units, and ultimately crush your opponents! 8-Bit Armies features offline single-player missions, two-player cooperative missions, AI skirmish mode, and Player-vs-Player Multiplayer modes running on dedicated game servers.

Also no LAN mode unfortunately. But they are still undecided. So additional feedback/demand could help, too:

That's what I though too, early Westwood games.

That's because most of Petroglyph's founders worked on C&C at Westwood Studios before.

Yes, I would be all over this. :)

Yes, we do need more RTS. No, I don't like the look of it so I don't care if they'll port it. ;)

I don't know what it is with games these days and no LAN. How are we supposed to play LAN parties without a LAN? Everything is internet only multi-player, which I totally understand, but what if my internet is too slow? What if I want to play LAN at a hotel or gaming conference?

You're a silly selfish. :P

If they decide against a Linux/Mac version, it might be possible to create a clone based on the OpenRA engine.

did they use unity to make this game ?
