Tower Unite is an interesting MMO, it's a community-based virtual world full of other games to play online. An interesting concept, sounds a bit like Second Life to me.

Announced on Steam
, the developers note the issues it currently has and how to get around them on Linux. I like this fully open approach as it tells me they have actually tested it quite a bit to know the ins and outs of the Linux version.

They are keen to stress Linux and Mac aren't a priority right now, which is fair enough, not everyone has the time and resources to fully support three games at once when the game itself is still in development.

I've reached out to the developer for a key to test with and report on.

Looks fun! I'd love to buy it and try it out myself, but I don't really have any extra money to spend right now. Maybe when there's a sale, though.

To be honest, after moving from Windows to Linux, I did give up on some childhood games that I was still playing, like Roblox (I've since quit, but I'd love to find another game that's not focused on ripping off the consumer, has a foundation built by its community and devs alike, etc.). This game seems like it will be able to fill that gap, especially since the community of Roblox and quality of games there has gone way downhill in recent years.
