Unknown Worlds the developers behind Natural Selection 2 have announced Subnautica an open world, underwater exploration and construction game with support for Linux.
They confirmed this to me via twitter, they will be using Unity so unless they find show-stopping bugs it will be on Linux!
So, what is it?
QuoteSubnautica will combine elements of role playing, sandbox, exploration and cinematic games to create a unique experience, the genre of which we do not believe has yet been invented.
Sounds like it could be pretty interesting, the underwater element should make things interesting that's for sure.
They have released nothing other than concept art and music like the shot below:
Sure does look interesting, if the game is anything like that count me in, you can find more concept stuff here.
Considering their history of supporting Natural Selection 2 so well I have high hopes for this one living a full life after being released.
Anyone else excited?
