Fancy becoming a child's action figure? Hypercharge will let you do this, and destroy your friends in this multiplayer shooter.

After seeing a quick video and some screenshots from it, I am very interested in this one and will be keeping an eye on it.

They advertise the Linux Tux icon on their website, which made me pretty happy.

About the game (From their website)
You are an action figure, fighting alongside or against your friends in our first & third person shooter co-op / multiplayer game, where the environment is either your obstacle or can be used to your advantage. As soon as you enter this gigantic world, you’ll realise it is an element that you have never experienced before. With imagination as your only limit, it is up to you to decide how you want to play.

Our aspiration as a team in terms of the main goal of Hypercharge is to make it all about choice, to give players multiple reasons to keep on playing. There isn’t just one thing you can do and that’s why we are implementing many different features that range from combat mechanics, level interaction and your health system that all reflect on your style of play.

I prefer The Mean Greens, hope they can finish the port to Linux in the near future.

When I saw that pictures I immediately was reminded of Toy Story and the cool kitchen map of Nexuiz (now Xonotic).

Looks cool! To bad about the multiplayer-only though.

Looks hawt, my favorite and only games I love are usually multiplayer.

I'm in the linux closed beta right now and is smooth as butter.
I'm getting more than 100FPS on every map, we are talking with developers in real time chat and they're fixing all the bugs.

All graphics quality to the best, gtx970 4gb, i7 3770 and ram 16gb 1600mhz cl9 4x4. Ubuntu 15.10 Nvidia-355
