Moss Destruction is an in-development fast-paced shooter with some roguelike elements that could be great when finished.

A fast paced, roguelike, isometric twin stick shooter with procedurally generated, action packed levels. Tackle the hordes of enemies with an armory of guns! Defeat dreadful bosses using handy upgrades for your bio-mech! Unlock new heroes and secret powerups to help your quest!

After speaking to the developer about it, they originally planned to keep Linux support back until it actually hit Early Access on Steam. They've now decided to get Linux access available during their closed-alpha period and their reasoning is hard to argue with:

We've decided to support Linux and Mac in the closed alpha stage too - it's better to have feedback asap if there is any platform-specific problem. 

I do wish more developers thought that way…

Here's a little peak at some gameplay (warning: it flashes quite a bit):

It's still quite early on in the development process and they're involving players through their Brightlocker page before they release it to the public properly. It's a website I hadn't heard of before, which enables developers to get their game out early-on while they're developing it and get feedback from people. You can buy various rewards (like a copy of the game) or tip developers to help them.

They also sent along some keys they said we could give out to our readers, so if you would like to help test and give feedback as it gets further developed, do let us know in the comments. They ask that you join them on their Brightlocker page if you get a key.

You can also follow it on Steam.
