They stated the Linux icon should hopefully come today as well to show off the fact that it's now on Linux officially.

@gamingonlinux we're aware of this and it should be added later today, with any luck.

It's also currently on sale until the 15th at 50% off for £7.49 so now is an excellent time to show your support, it's well worth it.

The developers also noted to us that yes, the DLC does work on the Linux version.

Key Features

  • Fast, frantic space combat: freely engage multiple enemies, dogfight other pilots, fight massive fleet battles and defend vast structures.
  • The Strike Suit: strategically switch from Pursuit Mode (speed and power) to Strike Mode (a powerful, highly maneuverable combat mode)
  • Capital Ship Destruction: take capital ships apart piece by piece – take out their turrets or target weak-points to blow out entire sections of their superstructure.
  • Multiple endings: your choices in game directly affect the state of Earth at the end of the game.
  • Vibrant and vivid universe: space is far from the dark, featureless void it’s supposed to be. Discover the color and vibrancy of the Strike Suit universe across 13 unique locations.
  • Ship Designs from renowned Mechanical Design engineer Junji Okubo (Appleseed: Ex Machina, Steel Battalion.)
  • Music from award-winning composer Paul Ruskay (Homeworld) including a collaboration with Japanese singer/songwriter Kokia (Tales of Innocence, Gunslinger Girl: II Teatrino)
  • Joystick compatible: as well as being fully optimized for mouse and keyboard, and gamepads, Strike Suit Zero is compatible with a range of joysticks for full immersion.
  • Multi-screen support: play the game across three monitors, and discover the Strike Suit universe in all its widescreen glory.

Do you know if Strike Suite Infinity is planned on Linux too?

(I already asked in the article about the beta but I guess my question is better here.)

Currently it's not happening no.

According to a dev in Steam Forum it looks like SSI might be coming to Linux:

As soon as it appeared in my list I started to download, I was playing it right now and I have to say it´s a fantastic game, I love space simulators, I bought SSZ with the DLC and SSI too.

Awesome! =) Me and my bro have this, he's going to be thrilled when I tell him. Now I'm waiting for Worms to show up in my Linux list ready for d/l. ;)

Will this game be avaliable outside Steam?

If this game hits Humble Bundle, will require Steam to activate and play too?

Have the develoupers considered Desura?

Dangit.  The game seems fun so far, but I have one major issue: I identify more with the colonials than the UNE.  I actually can't play the game, because I'm more interested in killing my teammates than my enemies, and am actually more satisfied when I fail a mission than when I succeed.

Ah, well.  I guess these are the dangers of being a cynical old man with no faith in humanity - story based games often pit me against my own ideals.

This is awesome! I was afraid that the game will not run on NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M with only 512 MB video memory. But it runs great even with high settings and 1920x1200 resolution, without antialiasing.

The game is also available on other stores (GOG, GamersGate − they don't sell the Linux version though) so the devs are not sticking to Steam per se. They don't sell it through the Humble Store or Desura, maybe they're unaware of these or the conditions don't suit them.

SSZ works brilliantly on Ubuntu 13.04! In the options menu, it actually has a setting for multi-monitor mode. I've never seen that option in any other game I've played before. Too bad I don't have an Occulus Rift, I'd like to try it with this game. I did a short video of SSZ running in Ubuntu with maxed out settings at 1080p, runs very well :)
Now, I hope Strike Suit Infinity might come to Linux too as I have that as well.
