Black Annex action strategy game announced and heading to Linux!

Posted by , | Views: 5,965

Black Annex is an action strategy game where the player operates the hands-on business of corporate sabotage and infiltration. Manage company resources, customise and outfit your agents before deploying them to steal, destroy, kidnap and kill as the mission and your own choices dictate.

I asked the developer about what platforms the game will be on and Linux was confirmed!

@gamingonlinux Windows, Linux and MAYBE Mac

Sadly the brand new website primarly lists Windows, this is due to the developer not knowing exactly when the Linux (and Mac) versions will hit. Apparently a Mac version has been a little troublesome for the developer. Hopefully this won't be the case for Linux!

QuoteThe game is written in QBASIC and runs on Windows XP through Windows 8 (I have functional, but very much "pre-alpha" Mac and Linux builds).

The Linux and Mac info is at the bottom of the official website.

The developer did say that a Linux version will happen though so do not fear, fun is near!

@gamingonlinux yeah very much so

I do love the visual style of this game! I am sure it will appeal to many of you as well!

Great to see more varied games coming to Linux, this one especially isn't the type of game we have seen much of!

Update: It is now on Greenlight as well, so help it get on Steam if you can!

Pixel art games actually look better on 360p resolution than on 720p! It is anti-aliasing, sort of...

Hands up everyone who played with QBASIC themselves when they were younger!
