Join us on our own very special Reddit on /r/Linuxers.
The developer of Voxel Turf [Steam, Official Site] just shared details of their game on reddit and I must say I'm extremely interested. It has features of GTA, base building and lots of others crammed into it.

The feature list makes it sound very interesting! It has various game modes to suit different styles of play, Steam Workshop support for modding, player customization, vehicles, mini-games, city building, LAN and online multiplayer and the list continues on for a while.

Here's the even more interesting thing: The developer has been working on it since 2012 and it originally began as a hobby for them to learn C++/SDL/OpenGL. It was built on Linux directly too, Linux Mint to be exact using tools like Geany and Gedit.

I've just put in a request for press access, so hopefully we will be granted keys to cover it. Update: Keys have been granted!

The game releases with Linux support on September 14th. If it turns out to be fun (it sure looks it) then it might be a good one to run a server for. Article taken from

Oh man, it has multiplayer. Imagine doing a drive by shooting on someones construction site. Trolling possibilities are endless! ;)

Seems like minecraft with commitment issues to me. Did they just list all the game ideas they could think of and jam them all in? Is this supposed to be an actual game, or more of a weird time-waster like Goat Simulator?

Intriguing. I would have thought tags like "Open World" and "Sandbox" would be listed on its Steam page, but it only says "Indie Strategy Action Simulation." A combination that would normally signal something I wouldn't find interesting, yet watching the video I'm already wondering if I can reproduce Saints Row's city of Stillwater.

Whatever, it's made in Linux (!!) and that alone warrants putting it on my wishlist!

Quick test the demo version. While the game was running clean, it still seemed quite unfinished. Perhaps the main version offers more content.

The music is cool.

Sound intriguing, especially thinking about modding. I would love to play in a dynamic crime or medieval city and fight my way to the top...

I wish i could start to study C++/SDL/OpenGL and ended up making a game like that.

I can barely make a sprite move without problems

Sooo awesome, I cant wait... Awesome to know they used SDL for this

I echo some of the other sentiments here.
Too many ideas , too little concrete gameplay.
All those streets look VERY barren.

Is not working for me (Linux Mint 18.3)
It says running but nothing happening.
