Really great to see this popular series of games continue to support Linux!

I'm currently waiting to hear back about a review copy, hopefully they will contact us soon after I've sent a reminder on it. Certainly looks good and I did enjoy the previous games.

Going by feedback from users on Steam, looks like it's another good entry.

Currently only available for Linux on Steam.

I had a 20% off coupon on Steam for this today. I may end up getting it but found the last one (two?) just too hard as the game progressed, even on the easiest difficulty.

Loved the first game though.

I also received a 20% off coupon from Steam. (valid for 1 week.)

I assume that they sent them to people that own the first Kingdom Rush. (maybe Kingdom Rush Frontiers too, but I do not own that one.)

I can't recommend the KR games enough, they are a lot of fun!

I also consider them very hard.

Yet, I like that as too many games are just TOO easy these days imho.
I read an article from a game designer that argued this is a general
trend as todays gamers tend to give up too quickly and, hence,
stop playing (and buying) these games.

If a game's too easy then it's difficulty levels have not been implemented properly. The default should be what the programmer thinks is good for their average player. Then good players can up it if they want and useless noobs like me can set it waaaaaay down

It will be available on GOG like their two other games?
I don't know about these games, but reading you about it... I think I'll buy the first one (or Frontiers) to see.
Their ratings are high.

Yes, it was just released on GOG. But sadly, seemingly without Linux support.
