I wrote about Stellar Tactics [Steam, Official Site] in October last year, as it looked like a pretty decent space exploration RPG and the developer was planning Linux support. It seems the Linux version is now coming closer!

I was pointed out to a Twitter post from the developer:
QuoteRunning perfectly with one or two small issues. Needs full testing though. Not sure when it will be done.

Sounds promising!

About the game
QuoteBringing back the nostalgia, excitement and wonder of classic RPG's, Stellar Tactics will thrill you with a compelling narrative, deep strategic squad-based ground combat and rewarding open world space exploration. To survive, you will need to build your team's skills and equip your party and ships with the best weapons, armor and equipment you can find. With 10,000 sectors, tens of thousands of solar systems and millions of planets to discover, you can spend countless hours exploring, fighting, trading and building a party of seasoned veterans that can dominate the challenges of deep space.

That looks potentially awesome. If it does come to Linux I'm super interested.

I like the idea a lot.
Would have loved an FTL sans the permadeath and rebel fleet constantly harassing you.

Curios if they will have a story mode on it though.

You gotta be f'ing kidding me, or just insanely egoistic. Pretty much 19 of 20 games in the strategy/rpg genre is turn based. You are FLOODED with your games. The release schedule is stacked with turn based mechanics.

When was the last time we had an action rpg coming our way? Sometime back in 2015?

Diversity is king.

I love my turn-based RPGs and your salt amuses me, but honestly? That's fair. I wouldn't mind a good action RPG either.
