I wrote about Earth Liberation [Official Site] recently, as it was one of my random discoveries on itch. It's now on Steam and the developers have confirmed it will come to Linux during Early Access.

I followed it up with a post on Steam now it's available and the developer said this:
QuoteYes indeed, Linux support will be added to Earth Liberation during Early Access. We will update the community once we have the exact timing expectations.


As a massive RTS fan, this has me really excited.

About the game (Official)
In a nutshell, Earth Liberation is a short sessioned highly intense RTS, fast-paced with an old-school taste. The focus is on combat rather than on base development or complex economy. The game challenges skilled players without introducing new brain twisting mechanics into the genre. As a Commander of the Resistance, you have to cut through a series of fierce close quarter battles. In Earth Liberation hell drops on you instantly - and your only keys to victory are tactics and rapid decision making. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Anyone other feels that most of the "latest RTS" are... quite lookalike?

What makes this stand out in any way? It looks like a crappy alpha build of sc2. And that trailer, man, I am staying AWAY from this game I'm sure their intentions are good anyhow!

As a big fan of traditional RTS games, I can tell you we have a real drought of them on Linux.

More of them is a good thing and personally I think it looks pretty good.

There is gameplay:

it looks: uuuh...

I need remake of Age of Empires 1

Or metal fatigue.

Or any old good RTS or any new good RTS. This looks horrible.

I'd also say it looks quite impressive! You can not expect a Starcraft II clone with the exact same quality from a team with much less monetary resources.

If the game is out of early access and if it's considered to be good at that time it's an instabuy!

I really did not like it (the demo at least). Too simplistic.

Must-Buy for me as soon as they add Linux support.

I will buy it, if is DRM Free.

Looks like SC2 , and that pyramid seems like Necrons from Warhammer 40k.
Not impressed when they can't make something original.

That's what I mean, why try to copy sc2 with a fraction of the budget? Do something original instead, like Offworld Trading Company, I wish that would be ported to linux.
