The developer of 'Destination Ares' [Steam] has stated on Steam that a Linux version of this interesting sounding strategy game is planned.

The developer said:

QuoteYes, I do hope to build it to Linux (and Mac) down the line. I felt it prudent to focus on one platform for release, esp. since I don't have computers to test Linux and Mac builds on atm.

I've voiced my support, as it's one I would genuinely like to try out. I will keep you posted on any updates.

About the game

A colony spaceship has been thrown together with old, worn parts. The crew boots up the ship's artificial intelligence as they start the arduous journey to the red planet.

You've awoken, AI. Can you survive the journey ahead?

Destination Ares is an unforgiving resource-management sim, wrapped in a pensive story. As the ship's AI, it's your job to keep the crew alive, against all odds and obstacles (including themselves).

Do Windows developers not know about dual booting?

I personally have no interest in this. The graphics look very bad, especially for a $12(US) game.

Graphics don't make a game

At first, I thought the game would be an extension to Faster Than Light. I mean the ships look really similar, except for the texture quality.

*cough*FTL*cough*

Graphics shouldnt make or break a game. OG fallout looks terrible by modern standards, yet I would have totally payed $60 for that game. I bought it on GoG, along with the second one. FTL has civ levels of playtime, and it looks 16 bit.

Meanwhile, the highest level graphics and the highest level games have been sucking hard lately. Graphics /=/ gameplay
