From their FAQ:
QuoteCurrently, we are only releasing the PC version, because it's our primary development platform, but we intend to make Ylands fully multi-platform. Our plans involve a Mac and Linux release sometime in the future and we would also like to make the game available on consoles.

It seems it's a Unity game, as they are showing it off at Unity's Unite event.

About the game
Ylands is a cheerful sandbox game that will captivate you by its beautiful polygon graphics. Using terrain voxels and building blocks, you can create a completely modifiable island and then place it anywhere in the World. You have full control over your game experience: choose to play alone or with friends; try to live a life on your yland with only a handful of survival items or choose to have them all - it's up to you.

It's nice to see that Bohemia Interactive is becoming more Linux friendly, but it does of course help to use a game engine that already supports Linux. Article taken from

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

Cue the complaints about the use of the term "PC", in five, four, three...

Also, worth remembering that this is an early alpha/prototype and therefore there is a chance they will abandon the game before release if there just isn't enough interest. It might simply not reach the point of a linux version being made available.

Lol. I just got done looking at this game in an article at RPS, wishing Bohemia would bring Ylands and other future games to Linux. Lo and behold! It may well yet come to pass! Groovy Huzzahs all around. :D

Agreed. It's not what I think of when I hear Bohemia.
