Note: The developer has also now commented on this article to fully confirm Linux support if you had any doubt.

I love the style of the game:

Confirmed that Linux is an option, as I'm using it right now! The real question is will it be one they choose?

/sarcasm



Looks cool, I hope they bring it to Linux!

That is hilarious. So it is coming to Linux for sure? Yes, maybe.

Yep. Windows is an option for me too. It will never happen, but the option is there.

Well that video had exactly zero game play footage, but oh well, I still very much loved the Mechwarrior isometric shooter games that were on Super Nintendo back in the day and hope that this game will provide some great fun as well!

There are some more videos on our YouTube channel of our demo, and some by our fans: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=antraxx+game

We're definitely supporting Linux, and we have a rough gameplay demo available now at www.play.antrasxx.com that should work for any Linux user (I highly advise to use Chrome since we use WebGL). Currently we're working on a massive gameplay and graphical overhaul, so what you see in the demo isnt gonna represent the final game but its a small taste of whats to come.

So awesome to be featured here, have browsed this site for years.

Nice, thanks for the info and especially for the Linux support! Can't wait to see more of your game as it evolves! Good luck making it really shine!

I loathe trailers that don't show me game-play -_____-

How am I supposed to know at a glance if I want something if I can't even see the product - jesus.

The freggin images on this page look a billion times more interesting than the trailer.

I guess its because we're not done recording our actual gameplay trailer yet Like I said, there are alot of videos on YT showing demo gameplay.

I'm really digging the "Metal Slug" look of this. Looks fun too.
