Developer Indoor Astronaut announced yesterday that their amusing and chaotic track building game Unrailed! now has a Beta available for Linux players to try out.
Unrailed! is a chaotic online and couch co-op multiplayer railroad construction game where you work together with your friends as a team to build a train track across endless procedurally generated worlds. Master encounters with its inhabitants, upgrade your train and keep it from derailing!
They announced this quietly on Steam, so I took the plunge and picked up a personal copy to try out. So far, so good! The tutorial worked perfectly, performance seems fine too and it seems like a genuinely fun game idea. Can certainly see why it has a "Very Positive" user rating on Steam.
I managed to test a game online too, so cross-platform multiplayer does seem to work nicely.
The latest experimental build which has the Linux version includes more than just ports. They've also added in checkpoints and a save system, allowing you to save and quit at each station. The Hardcore mode disables checkpoints.
