That trailer may not show the Linux icon at the end (how odd), but the tweet they sent out and the Steam page all specifically state Linux support day-1:

Our grand strategy game #Realpolitiks is coming to #Windows, #MacOS and #Linux on February 16, 2017! https://t.co/Ykylircly5 #polishgamedev

I think it looks quite interesting, and might have to give it a go!

About the game

Realpolitiks is a streamlined real-time grand strategy game that allows you to become the ruler of any contemporary nation. Dive deep into the issues of the modern world, with its current geopolitical borders, using your country’s power and economic strength to engage in military conflicts and international affairs. Choose your own method of coping with other nations' interests, unexpected events, global threats and various crises. Deal with the disintegration of the European Union, the expansion of Islamic State, the aftermath of World War III and many other real and fictional scenarios.

Based on three main political systems (democracy, authoritarianism, totalitarianism), Realpolitiks allows you to extend the influence of your country through various means, all in order to win the race for global domination. Use your diplomatic skills, economic advantages, military power and the full freedom of moral and ethical decision-making to become a world superpower and ensure the well-being of your citizens.

Sounds interesting, but I stumbled upon "real time"...
Galatolol 18 Jan, 2017
Exactly, grand strategy + real time is not what I like.
But I will put it on my wishlist and by someday anyway.

I hope it is realtime in the same sense as Paradox games are - that is pausable realtime.

This looks like a great game. I hope since it is set in modern times that most of the focus is on internal politics and not on conquering the world.

"Based on three main political systems (democracy, authoritarianism, totalitarianism), Realpolitiks allows you..." No anarchism? Not real nor politics... but that's another topic, so to stick to the game purpose... I won't buy it.

I really like Europa Universalis and this game looks similar but with more focus on diplomacy and economy. I will probably get this :)

Surely it isn't a political system. Or are you one of those people who don't see the irony in organized anarchism? :)

This looks like the exact game I would develop if I could actually develop games. We'll see how well it's implemented, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and buy day-1 because I've always wanted a 21st century Paradox-esque game that focuses almost entirely on politics.

There wouldn't be ANY gameplay if there was anarchism. Just sit back and watch your lack of state progress on its own and, I'd argue, eventually re-develop itself into a state, but that's another topic :P.

Yep. My thoughts exactly. This is going to be an instabuy for me too.

One thing I'm curious about is whether they will have the fallacy of democracy and capitalism being one and the same, or whether they will allow for more interesting systems like authoritarian capitalism (ie. Singapore) or democratic socialism (Scandinavian model). That would probably be a dealbreaker for me.

The development company is located in Poland and was founded by
former CD Projekt RED (The Witcher 2), so my hopes are high!
