The next universe sandbox may support Linux

Posted by , | Views: 8,519
Universe Sandbox where you can spawn massive stars, launch asteroids, and manipulate gravity with just a few clicks, currently Windows only but the developers have said something interesting for the next version.

A developer stated on the Steam forum:
QuoteThe new version of Universe Sandbox that will likely support Linux is still in development and not yet for sale.

We're developing the new version in Unity 4, so the Linux support should be as easy as the Mac and Windows version.

So it seems again thanks to Unity we will have another awesome game on Linux!

About the Game
Create and destroy on a scale you’ve never imagined with the ultimate space simulator.
Harness the power to create black holes, collide galaxies, and manipulate gravity with just a few clicks. Inspired by the software astronomers use to unlock the mysteries of our universe, never before has astronomy been so interactive or so much fun.
Spawn a massive moon to tear apart Saturn’s rings or launch a rogue star to rip the planets from their orbits around our sun. After unleashing catastrophic destruction, create your own solar system and share it with friends.

I can't say I read any of their information on it in detail, is this an update to the already existing "game" / simulator or a new product entirely?

My brother plays with this on Windows, so it would be good to get him playing it on Linux.

It looks like it will be a a new version of it as they are re-doing it in Unity.
