Very good sound effects! Really solid audio. That's a very good sign in itself.

And so the first verse of the swan song begun...

I think their primary problem was their strategy to have the users create the content, aka "pvp". Big failure. It sounds so great on paper, just create a sandbox and keep the servers running, and wait for the steady income to begin. So, SO many small studios try that route. But it doesn't work like that. It's not that easy.

It really stings me that Metro Exodus doesn't come to Linux, considering the earlier games did.
It bothers me more than it should, but I felt that at least we had those guys on our side. The Metro games are really great too, it's far, faaar too far between games of that level on Linux.

Beamboom... and with proper voice acting too

The voice acting is good, but the English translation (from German?) sounds a bit too literal...

Maybe... But I'm totally open for filing that under "charming" and not be too affected by it.

It's strange if that's the case though, one should believe that voice actors of this calibre could/would comment on that.

Alm888Good news!
As much as I liked "X: Rebirth", no way I'm gonna pay in full for a delayed release.

Why not? I mean, if it's worth it it's worth it, isn't it? So, if they held back the windows version until the Linux version were ready (now) you'd buy it, but since Windows received it first you want to, what, punish the devs?

A good game is a good game, and it's not like this was released a decade ago on Windows.

... and with proper voice acting too, not just the dull text dialogues - and really good voice actors! Great art style, looks totally worth buying.

Totally unrelated but:
