The game was funded using Kickstarter where it hit over $190K, and I seriously cannot wait to see what they did with the money. It looks epic and the early demo was pretty decent too.

The developers teased this on twitter:

Hey Linux!! We're baaaaack.

We asked about the Linux release:

@gamingonlinux Yep!

And then details on the release itself:

@gamingonlinux We'll be launching Early Access via Humble in just a couple weeks, retail probably at year end.

Looks terrific, and I am certain that I cannot play for more than about 4 minutes, due to a severe lack of twitch, that kind of skill, before ALT-F4ing and wondering if I should have been that impulsive so as to have bought it...:|

Sweet. This is one of the few crowdfunded projects that I backed but haven't had time to keep up to date with. Glad to hear they're on track :)
