It was only a few days ago that they said it would arrive soon, so it's really great to see them work so quickly to provide a Linux version.

From the forum post:
QuoteGood news everyone!

We have a working build now for Linux..........or at least we think so. The biggest problem we have is we don't currently have a Linux system so we are looking for help.

We are looking for two players to help us test out the systems and make sure everything is working before we go live. Testing shouldn't take long and we'll reward the players copies of the game for free.

If anyone is interested in helping us test this build, please E-mail me at

I honestly think it looks fantastic, so hopefully testing goes smoothly for them. Article taken from

Though I might be too late, I still send them an email.
This type of game sounds great: coop twin stick action... up to 8 players. Yep, that's what I want to play ;)
