Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor is probably going to suck a lot of my free time dry with the easy to use drone builder, lots of fun options to give it some AI along with fun combat.

The developer, Stray Fawn Studio, previously released the genetics survival game 'Niche' which also supports Linux. While I liked the idea, I wasn't a big fan of it overall. Then along comes Nimbatus on Kickstarter last year which made me love the developer. Taking inspiration from games like Faster Than Light, Reassembly, Kerbal Space Program and Besiege it was quite impressive. Especially so since they had a working Linux demo from the very beginning.

There's a new gameplay overview to feast your eyes on:

What you're able to make with it is truly ridiculous, I'm still learning and I honestly don't consider myself particularly smart when it comes to things like logic gates. Even so, I've managed to make some designs I personally find extremely fun. It has Steam Workshop support, so if you're not too good at the building side you can download others designs.

Win a key

For those who wish to bag themselves a key, we have three to give away. If you wish to win a copy I will make it easier this time! Simply let me know (clearly!) you want to win a key. Keys will be sent out Saturday around 7PM UTC.

Buy it now

For those not bothered about winning a key, you can find it on Humble Store and Steam.
