Gear Up coming to Linux

Posted by , / 7184 views
Gear Up is a multiplayer online game where you can build tanks and participate in online challenges such as battles, races and missions. We have created lots of weapons, turrets, chassis and tracks, all ready to be assembled with each other.  Thousands of different tanks can be created and if you think wheels and tracks are boring try the spider legs, the hoovers or the wings. All vehicle parts are physically simulated  and we are tweaking them towards arcade action.

QuoteYes we are working on a Linux version. It is a native port where all systems in the engine are ported to Linux.

Currently we get to the main menu in Gear Up. The next step is to work on the input system.
We are not really sure when the port will be playable and available. Perhaps we can start public testing 2-3 months from now.

I spotted this on Stream Greenlight when they added Linux support to the game's profile there. Looks great

Cool!  Title correction, though:  "comming" -> "coming"  (no criticism... just trying to help us, here, look as professional as possible... GOL's status and profile is becoming increasingly important as Linux gathers Steam...  )
