There's now a Linux version of ASTROKILL on Steam as promised

Posted by , / 7939 views

I wrote about how the developer of ASTROKILL [Steam] was planning a Linux build just over a week ago, well, now they have!

As a reminder, here's the trailer:

Here's what they said:

I just uploaded the first Linux build. For anyone that already has the game, it should automatically download (if you're on a Linux machine). I have a batch of Beta keys to give out as well. PM me and I'll send you a key. Bear in mind, this is the first Linux build and it's entirely untested. I'm hoping it just works without a hitch, but that's rarely the case... If you already PM'd me, please do so again (Steam's chat system is pretty clunky).

I've placed it into my personal wishlist, as it seems like a game I would be very into. The developer cites influences from games like Freespace 2 (one of my all time favourites).

About the game:

Focused on combat without compromising realism, ASTROKILL is a modern space shooter drawing inspiration from old-school games like TIE Fighter and Freespace 2. Players pilot fighters, gunships, interceptors, and medics (in 1st or 3rd person) from warring factions in ballistic dogfights. Wage war flying for either the sprawling Dominion of Man or the rebellious Outer Belt Alliance!

It doesn't currently show a SteamOS icon, but don't let that deter you, there is a Linux build available right now.

Will you pick up a copy to support the developer?
