The cutesy artillery game has added Linux support in its ongoing beta test. Development apparently still has a ways to go which makes this early support extra nice.

Hybrid Beasts was previously covered a while ago as a title that might be a good deal of fun. It’s a mix of tried and true Worms-style artillery action with a storyline, quest and a world to explore.

Currently, the beta is a little threadbare and is limited to local multiplayer. Things like more levels, weapons and gameplay modes are planned to be included as time goes on. The developer is regularly releasing new builds so hopefully it won’t be too long before most of the content is added to the game. It seems that the game is using Ethan Lee’s FNA so it's a good sign the game will run well on Linux.

About the game
Hybrid Beasts is a unique cross-genre game where you explore an open world full of adventures, quests and secrets. During your travels, you compete with teams of never before seen creatures in explosive and yet strategic turn-based battles to conquer and defend the regions of the world you just discovered.

You can buy Hybrid Beasts through a Humble Store widget on its official site. Article taken from

Thank you very much for featuring us here . We are very happy to be able to add full Linux support already at this stage of developement. Currently, the Linux renderer is just as fast as under Windows and delivers a smooth 60 fps on most graphics hardware . We are currently very much looking for additional beta testers that play the game under Linux as it has been surprisingly hard to get a decent variation of Linux distros tested so far.
