The game is currently on Kickstarter, with a goal of €5K, they're nearly half way towards the goal too with 26 days left to go. For those worried about their plan for Linux support, do note they do have three previous games available on Steam that all have Linux support already—a good sign!
They've put up some early footage to give you an idea of what it's like:
It will feature three different game modes:
- Arcade: Face the mission of finishing a circuit in time and win the gold, silver or bronze badge.
- Championship: If you are ready for a real challenge, run as fast as you can to become the king of the galaxy. The countdown starts now!
- Mercury Arena: One stadium, two ships, only one will survive. It's time for a life or death fight.
They're planning to release sometime in "Q3 2018", with a beta in Early Access. Mixing some high-speed manoeuvres with shooting could be pretty fun! If you like the sound of it, find it on Kickstarter.
