Pavel Zinchenko's new game Event Horizon - Frontier looks like a pretty sweet mix of 2D space action, with base defence and it's releasing soon with Linux support. It's set in the same universe as the previous game, Event Horizon, which was released late last year which also has Linux support.

Features:

  • Over 100 unique ships - New ships can be unlocked as you progress through the game, from small frigates to capital ships
  • Fully modular ships - Change the internal layout of your ships to use different weapons, add more armor and much more
  • Massive fleet battles - Rally up a fleet of ships to help you defend your space station against dozens of alien invaders
  • Exploration - Scavenge ship wreckage and abandoned cargo for blueprints and scraps
  • Investigate beacons - Go to beacons to help cargo ships under attack or destroy an enemy space station
  • Endless upgrades - Ships can be expanded and even repainted for looks, and modules can be upgraded

It might not be much in the way of looks, with a style that's pretty simple but the actual action involved does look like it will be quite intense.

Event Horizon - Frontier is releasing on Steam on July 3rd.

Sold. Goddam, this ticks all my Drox Operative, Reassembly, and Captain Forever boxes! Sign me the hell up!

The only question is, how did I miss the first game?! I guess I'll buy that one right now, and that'll give me a week and a half to look forward to the sequel...

Ooooh, looks very interesting. Waitlisted. Say what one will about AAA titles or lack thereof, but I think we're having a great Linux gaming year.

Quoting: Guestthe UX is a bit wonky, sorta touch screen oriented style of UI.
I think the mobile version of this (and there is one) has been out for a bit. Makes sense...
