Cortex Command Soon To Be Re-ported, Says Developer

Posted by , | Views: 6,729
From out of nowhere strikes another port in progress. Some of you may remember Cortex Command from a humble bundle a few years back. The game has since picked itself up, dusted itself off and has workshop support and an incoming Linux port by an outside developer. I still have a sore spot from that humble build but at least it's coming.

Here's the quotes

Cortex Command is a game about players controlling body suits inside bases from a human brain lodged in some gear. You sit in your dark and dingy basement and control these suits to wage war on another brain. The gameplay is fun and from the last build I played it was to put it nicely, a 'sandbox' game where the missions did not exist and you basically bought stuff from a shop and just battled some skirmishes or with another player via splitscreen.

Certainly one to watch out for, it has some great potential.

"I still have a sore spot from that humble build" in my case it would be putting it lightly, it was one of the first bundles I bought after converting to Linux, not a great start:/ especially that I liked the game on windows:/u

I've played both the native CC port and CC via wine. There are extra features in CC Windows (which I think is at 1.06) compared to the native port (wedged at 1.0rc) so I'm really hoping that the new port is better, faster and at feature parity.

Hey - Toribash came back to the Linux party, so I hold out some hope that CC will be back as a regular.

The 3D in this video irritates me.

It appears the game has _zero_ 3D during gameplay, why would the developer see the need to include bad 3D in their game trailer if its not in gameplay? It's not money is it?

Probably left over concept art or something. I guess its the same with quite a few game trailers where they will show cinematics that never appear ingame.

im looking forward to playing this new port, old one is really dated and lack features.
