Arc Savior, another space combat game will be supported on Linux after release

Posted by , | Views: 4,471

Arc Savior, a new space combat game from developer Squid Monkey Studios is releasing later this month and it looks quite interesting. Turns out the developer is going to support Linux too.

When asked about it on the Steam forum, the developer said "All going well, a Linux build will be available. However, after Windows, Xbox will be next then Linux.". So for those wanting a supported build, there will be a little wait but it is coming.

Looks pretty retro, take a look:

Even with the classic style to it, I have to admit the action looks like it will get pretty intense. As a big space combat fan, I'm very much looking forward to trying it out.

Here's an overview of what it will feature:

  • Fast, engaging space combat: Engage various threat types, defend and destroy massive structures, adapt to a variety of attack patterns.
  • Take Control: Fight from your cockpit or take aim with your 3rd person view.
  • Choose your ship: Fly a variety of advanced Terran fighters, from nimble scout ships to powerful interceptors!
  • Customize: Equipped your ship with an array of advanced weaponry, built for damage and utility.
  • Destruction: take structures and defense systems apart piece by piece – out wit their turrets and target weak-points to immobilize or shatter sections of their hull.
  • Vibrant dangerous universe: Jump into 15 different locations, beautifully crafted, all with their own stories to tell and dangers to find.
  • Immersive Narrative: Be at the center of 3 engaging stories, your efforts control the fate of your people.
  • Joystick compatible: as well as being fully optimized for mouse and keyboard, and game-pads.

Trashgames left, trashgames right, trashgames everywhere.

It is really hard to find a decent game these days which doesn't leave the impression that an amateur has developed it in his garage.

Completely rude and unnecessary. You haven't even played it, don't be a tool.

Oh, the admin believes he can define what is rude and which opinion is necessary and which not (probably the one he doesn't agree with). What comes next? Troll insults and censoring?
I still do have an issue with all the trash games if you like it or not and this one is for sure nothing that will even get attention in magazines.

Well, yeah, it is his site...

Ok, sigh, I'll bite. Off beat, indie games are what we generally get on Linux, save a rare AAA title here and there. They're often quirky, not trashy. One of my favorite games of anything right now is a solo-developed, indie game I play on Proton called "Clone Drone in the Danger Zone." Its graphics look like they're out of the mid-90's, but I could care less. It's a blast. Certainly not one the "magazines" would focus on (and who's read a physical gaming magazine in the last 15 years?).

If big time, AAA coverage is what you're looking for, go choose a different platform and haunt the forums over at PCGamer or Kotaku. <Troll feeding mode off>

Others have already noted your tone, so I won't repeat it here. But what led you to conclude it will be trashy and amateuristic? The graphics and sound feel ok and from the description the gameplay seems arcase-ish (in a way that appeals to a larger public). It's not an AAA with visuals like Star Wars Battlefront II, but I see no real indication it will be of bad quality.

And that's a great example of the opposite, actually. Despite jaw dropping visuals, I don't find the EA BFII that enjoyable to play. I actually vastly prefer the 2005 BFII, which I think has near perfect gameplay. That, and the modded and updated maps and characters that users create make that game a blast even 14 years later...
