 Should be in the edit private information section in your interstellar marines account. I got my keys, and added them to steam.

Isn't this the game that was gonna have Linux support because it was using Unigine but then it switched to Unity and the Linux version was canned because Unity didn't support Linux and that time?

You are thinking about Primal Carnage.
They switched from Unigine to UDK.

I'm hoping this one turns out well too, was backing it on their kickstarter that failed to hit an ambitious goal. Any more details available on the roadmap, in particular the parts affecting Linux support?

They had told me something about "Middleware" that didn't work on Linux. Im not sure what kind of Middleware, but they said they need to figure out how to get it working correctly.
