I love vehicle combat games, especially when it's some form of mech unit. MAV looks interesting and it's coming to Linux.
The developer said this recently:
QuoteLinux support is still on the list. The amount of testing required to release a build right now is a list about 5 pages long and I am still missing things. If I add Linux support right now, testing time will increase by about 5X and overall stability will drop significantly.
Linux support will be coming once I have the capacity to handle the additionally testing load without slowing the progress on the game.
Be sure to let the developer know you would like to see it on Linux in the linked post. Remember though, just stating "+1" is considered spam.
I think it looks like it could be really fun, I love the customization. The mech in the trailer with two massive shields on its arms looks pretty awesome.
