VEKTOR 2089, a retro inspired fast-paced racer is planning to come to Linux, I think it looks great and it needs a boost on Steam Greenlight. Yes, Greenlight still exists.

It has tons of features crammed into it by the looks of it! With a championship mode, split-screen multiplayer, a built in track editor and more.

The developer put out a message on Twitter, as they are having a hard time getting enough votes to pass Steam Greenlight, which is a real shame.

The gameplay looks pretty good! Fluid motion, nice mechanics, everything looks very playable, but I'm already getting a bit of a headache just watching the trailer due to the giant pixels moving by so fast. I think if they upped the resolution a bit, maybe going for more of an Amiga 1200 / AGA look, it would work much better!

I'd maybe consider it on my mobile phone. Maybe.
