Heads up DRM free lovers, as Xenonauts is has been updated on GOG to include the newer native Linux version.

About the game
Xenonauts is a strategy game in which you control a multi-national military organisation defending a Cold War-era Earth from alien invasion, using small squads of persistent soldiers to eliminate the extraterrestrials and recover their technology in turn-based ground combat. A detailed strategic layer allows you to co-ordinate the defence of the planet, using your interceptors to shoot down UFOs and researching captured artefacts to learn about your foes and unlock new combat equipment to use on your missions.

Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games from the 1990s. We aim to improve the graphics, add new content and streamline the interface whilst still retaining all of the key mechanics of the original games. Devoted fans should love this game, but we're also keen to introduce the joys of old-school grand strategy to a whole new generation of players who might not otherwise experience it!

Find Xenonauts on GOG.

I will be testing out Xenonauts to see how it compares with my old love XCOM, and writing it up at some point reasonably soon for you. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

If the devs make a 64-bit version, we'll put it up :)

You should ask them. 32-bit is already obsolete - there is no point to make such builds anymore.

Quoting: GuestIs it still a wine wrapper?
The first words in the title of this article are "Native Linux Build", so no, it's not a wine wrapper. :)

Someone skimmed over the title, and the content of the article...that's weird.
