I was really excited when I saw the STRAFE Kickstarter, but it didn't really seem like it would come to Linux. Thankfully, it seems like now it will be on Linux.

Their description of it is quite funny:
QuoteSTRAFE® is the fastest, bloodiest, deadliest, most adjective-abusing, action-packed first-person shooter of 1996. Featuring breathtaking photorealistic graphics and persistent gore that allows you to paint levels red with the excessive entrails of your enemies.

You can find STRAFE on Steam, due in 2017.

This is exactly the type of retro theme I like to see. I'm not usually a fan of "retro" inspired games, but this genuinely looks fun. It also looks reasonably pleasing on the eyes too, so that's a bonus.

They did an awesome job on their commercial too. If anything, I at least want the soundtrack.

Oh god all that blood. I didn't realize how much I missed that in games until just now.

Now I am hyped about this game until 2017.
