Remember Advance Wars? Well, TINY METAL [Official Site] is a "spiritual successor" and the good news is that the developers have plans for a Linux version.
The game comes from Japanese developer, AREA35, who originally ran a Kickstarter for it which sadly failed. They're now back and it's sounding good!
The gameplay certainly looks pretty slick!

This was one of my usual shots in the dark, pretty pleased with the result here! I didn't expect a reply, especially not one so quick!
I remember pouring endless hours into Advance Wars and many other games like it, so I'm looking forward to their Linux release.
