Kinetic Void 3D space adventure will be heading to Linux

Posted by , 26 March 2013 at 8:05 pm UTC / 3077 views
Kinetic Void is a 3D space adventure with a focus on customization and enjoyable space simulation. The game is one of the few in Steam's new Early Access section (meaning it's early in development).

So this has everything I like in a game, it's space themed, I can build a ship and fly it around and with good visuals as well, this game is full of "win".

Their F.A.Q clearly states it will be heading to Linux!
QuoteQ: What operating system does KV run on?
A: We are developing on Unity3d, and will be deploying to Windows, OSX, and Linux.

  • Fully detailed and customizable space ships.
  • Hundreds of weapons and modules of multiple sizes
  • Fully customizable and adaptable controls for mouse, keyboard, and joystick.
  • Huge procedurally generated galaxy, limited only by your computers capabilities.
  • Randomized factions and political standings.
  • Open world sandbox, you are in control of your fate.
  • Detailed economy simulation with resources, trade routes and more.
  • Epic space combat.
  • Toggleable Newtonian Flight
  • Emergent gameplay.
Looking forward to seeing this one come to Linux. There has been a delay in the Linux version thanks to the "Scaleform" which they are moving away from:
QuoteWe ran into some problems with the Mac and Linux client using scaleform, so we are changing to another UI framework. I have been working on the UI all day, I hope to have it up and running soon.

We are NOT switching from Unity.

Hey all, thanks for the mention. I am Sean the lead developer of KV, we are working on a UI overhaul right now and hope to have it ready within the next two weeks, after that we will be pushing our Linux build live on Steam.

What's the best way to get alerts of stuff so that we can get the word out when it's time?
