I really enjoyed Eufloria when I played it a couple of years ago and sank many hours into the mobile version, but so far only a few into the PC version. It's a minimalistic strategy game that packs a surprising depth and I'm looking forward to checking out the new Linux version.

Yeah, that's pretty awesome. I hope it pays off for them.

I was hoping to at least buy the soundtrack to send some money their way, but it turns out I had that too. (Probably included in the Humble Bundle.)

I played it some time ago on Windows, and since I'd gotten it through a Humble Bundle I was able to just download and go with the Linux version.

They actually have changed a fair bit about the game, lots of welcome additions for sure. It is a bit weird how it handles resolutions though, doing that same freakout when you have dual monitors that a lot of other games do, and not being able to change resolutions in windowed mode. But it's still perfectly playable despite that, and the soundtrack is as great as I remembered.

Add me to the list of people who enjoy this game, if someone was just getting into gaming on Linux I would suggest this game as a good starting point.

Found it in my library last night, a remnant from when I still dual-booted. Beautiful and fun!
