I'm going to be honest, I had never heard of InSomnia, but it was sent in by a reader and I'm certainly interested now. An RPG set on a massive space station, with good looking graphics that's now planned for a same-day Linux release!

See their Kickstarter update here:
QuoteOther than that we continue exploring the cross-platform features of Unreal Engine 4 and currently it looks like we'll be able to release the final version of InSomnia for Windows, Mac and Linux simultaneously, without any gaps and not one by one as we considered in the beginning.

Their only real official gameplay video is old, but here's a newer video showing someone playing it, and it certainly looks interesting:

Looks like UE4 is quite the hit for bringing new Linux games!

This one has gone straight to my watch list, can't wait to see what it's like at release.

They've just released a new version too with loads of bug fixes ( 4.10.1 ) Including the crash bug for the linux editor :D

Cool. I'll keep my eye on it.

Wow... Now this is the kind of RPG I'd like to see on our platform. With excellent graphics, not just another Fantasy cookie-cutter concept, and without that darn isometric perspective.
Edit: And with coop too! Man... Bring it!

Good visuals but in terms of animation.... a lot of work to do.

I have been following the development of this game for quite a while now, and with every announcement I grow more and more excited.

I'm surprised to find myself wanting Insomnia for its art alone. It's as if art deco and art moderne elements had been hammer-welded together in a constructivist gulag. It's decopunk on the skids, beguilingly noir --- and I want more.

Hell, even if the gameplay is shite, I'm thinking I'll buy it just to look at it.

God I'm weird.

We actually covered this back in July 2014 on the Funding Crowd - and back then the Linux version wasn't confirmed, so it's superb to see this one come good.
