Homeworld 3 and possible Homeworld 1 for Linux!

By - | Views: 12,326

Homeworld one of the greatest Sci-Fi Real Time Strategy games could come to Linux with your help!

13 years ago, one of the most legendary sci-fi games was released, and the space RTS genre took a giant leap forward in innovation and fun. Yet, somehow, nearly 10 years later, fans are still waiting for the next installment of the Homeworld franchise. We here at teamPixel, LLC are tired of waiting for the next Homeworld game and would like to rally fans together to bring the franchise back. The THQ bankruptcy has provided the unique opportunity for a new developer to license and helm the franchise and put Homeworld back in the hands of gamers.

Basically if you back these guys they will make Homeworld 3 and it will be multiplatform and if they hit $100,000 they will re-master the first game and bring it out multiplatform too.

If this fails I will lose faith in humanity. I LOVED the original so I have high hopes for this!

They had an indiegogo campaign and raised over $13,000!

They don't currently have the Homeworld license, this is money to make sure they get it.

Scam, how would a web development company with no games development experience be able to develop something like Homeworld. Also this doesn't go to developing the game, this just gets them some money to buy a property just to make them money. $50k would be nowhere near enough anyway.
