Natural Selection 2, the FPS with strategy elements has a fresh release out and they've published a roadmap towards a big 2.0 release.
Update 324 "CATALYST" was released today, along with news that they've officially pulled in another programmer to help push it forwards. As for the new release, it includes a bunch of overall balance tweaks as well as some sound improvements. They also released a new "Catalyst Pack" DLC to help fund future development, which includes news skins with more to be added. All this is in preparation for them gearing up towards a big 2.0 release with tons of planned tweaks.
On their roadmap, they're working towards a friends system to join games together, a clearer main menu, a clearer map, new maps, improved bot support and quite a lot more. It sounds like they have some pretty good plans for the game, so I hope they're able to rejuvenate it.
The game needs you to manually install libsndio, an issue which has been known about since last year so it's sad to see the developer still not include the dependencies needed. To grab it on Ubuntu, run this:
sudo apt install libsndio6.1
I imagine a fair few people will already have it, as a number of other games and applications outside of Steam use it too. I've sent them a message to remind them this still hasn't been done after around a year. They also need to fix the Steam Overlay, which doesn't currently work in the Linux version. Both quite minor issues, but still need sorting.
I had a bit of a blast on it earlier and it did bring back some good memories, I used to absolutely adore the game. It actually runs a lot better than it used to, very smooth now.
