Lux Delux A 'Risk' Styled Game Now On Steam For Linux

By - | Views: 4,854
For fans of the board game 'Risk' you may want to try out Lux Delux which is now available on Steam for Linux.

I've only ever played Risk twice in my life, and it took a long time both times, so a faster paced version for the PC, yeah why not!

About Lux Delux
Lux Delux is a fast-paced turn-based-strategy game inspired by classic board games of risk and world domination, with so much more!

-Take over the world in 10 minutes!
-Cross-platform online multi-player with rankings league! Our online champions want more fresh meat.
-Conquer over 900 different maps: Historical, geometric, fantasy, every US state!
-Biohazard mode nukes out different countries on the maps each game!
-Diverse map generator plugins including CastleInfinity.
-Create your own maps with the built-in Map Editor.

Lux Delux is an indie game cult classic, created by players, for players, and growing organically for over a decade now. Thanks for the Greenlight.

Because taking over the world is fun!

This game was apparently an IGF finalist way back in 2005, so it's nice to see it show up for sale for Linux. As a fan of strategy games who rarely play any because of the huge time investment they usually require, this one looks like it might be right up my alley.

I've been playing the Lux games for quite a long while; it was one I bought in the Great Desert of Linux games.

It's a pretty fun game, and is worth the play.

Just bought and tried it (I am a huge Risk fan, but I have never heard of this game before). It's definitely fun!
