It's near impossible to watch the damn video (I hope this "blur everything to the max" trend dies off.. fast)

Instant Interstate '76 vibe here.

As for the 80's theme being weird and unnecessary, again, Interstate '76

( GOG link )

Looks awesome, I'm not holding my breath for a proper linux port though.

Whitewolfe80Lol love the way you don't put Blizzard in the cash crab club when they are arguably worse than EA especially there parent group Activision.

I never said they weren't ;) I only said they should also add some EA cashgrab ;)

World of Warcraft
Diablo 3
Starcraft 2

but this will never happen ;)

Just port AAA titles.

QuoteQuestion: Is there any interest in me doing a separate site to cover general Linux news?
Yes but don't bury yourself in work ;)

For me ubuntu dropping Unity is a good thing, because indeed, developers now no longer have to work around unity and compiz to make things run

+ I simply hate Unity, ever since the first day it made its appearance.
Now please go and die Unity, die you filthy satan spawn

GuestTried to add my system info, inputs are super limiting. 5 monitors is the max I can choose (I have 9). Resolution options are for a single monitor. OS/Distro/Dual boot options are limited. No GPU count so on and so on.

yeah, super limiting because the very rare cases like you can't select their almost unique situation. come on

SamsaiOkay, some pessimistic observations:

Quote€100,000 goal
Quotesince the game is being developed with Unity we don't expect the porting process to be too painful
QuoteThough we're currently developing on Windows
Quotewho knows what will happen between now and release
Quotewe will really try to launch at the same time
At least Linux wasn't a stretch goal but I myself will steer clear of the Kickstarter, as usual.

I actually got excited for a moment when I saw the trailer,until it showed the unity3d icon... I think we've all had our share of unity3d kickstarter projects that get developed on windows where the devs are "really excited" about a linux build.

Lets just hope this one really does make it to linux and doesnt have the performance of a 3 legged donkey on acid.

No More Room in Hell 2 has a new teaser, should come to Linux

QuoteSome of the tools we're using aren't cross platform

Quotebut once the game is ready for thorough testing and public play we're going to do our best to make sure we can support linux from the start!

Is it so hard to just say the following ?

- We build the game on Windows.. for Windows. We use Windows middleware that has no linux version. We will not bullshit you and tell you we will get this working on linux, because it's just not going to happen.

Stop asking us for a linux version because we've already made it very clear we hardly know what linux is and are simply not interested in porting our game to linux.

Can't be too hard now can it ? ;)

Looks like Virtual Programming are working on porting Putty Squad to Linux
