  • For there not being a whole lot of information about this game floating about, there seems to be quite a bit of hype around it (well maybe just in the Linux community).

    I would be great to have some more quality games on Linux that aren't FPS. World of Goo was worth the cash, and it sounds like this might be too.

    I would love a key if there are still any available.

      • Key Request

        Hello, I would like to get a key for the beta. I'm glad to see the continued development by S2 games for the Linux community, I played Savage quite frequently years ago. Recently tried Savage 2 but it was a bit taxing on my laptop, hope this game is not as demanding but I will offer to test on 7800 GTX GO 256mb and Pentium M 2.0GHz system for your low/medium requirements.

        • I've been playing Savage 2 since they released the Linux Client and I would love a beta key to try out their latest game, nothing but love and respect for S2.

As far as I know, and as what's been shown far, I can get as many keys as needed if you are interested in testing it out and run Linux. So there is no need to ask any questions about "still having keys", etc.

            And if you need multiple keys for friends/family/whatever, make a separate post for each request, as it's easier to manage them that way.

            Lastly, please try to refrain from the one-line requests... Try to add something to the conversation or your thoughts on Linux gaming, S2 Games, whatever. If all else fails, just tell us what your favorite beer is, but please try to contribute to the discussion.
            For those of you that are new here, see above.

                • I'll be in!

                  I'd like a beta key, please.

                  I have always bought Linux-native games (the iD ones especially, I am an FPS lover) but also things like World of Goo, just to support the vendors who support Linux. I'll buy this game when it's available.

                  I'm hopeful that more games will be made available for Linux, but also realistic - Microsoft has a lot of marketing muscle and they have done well to lock vendors into DirectX... even when they shut out 90% of Windows users by making DX10 Vista-only. Amazing.

                  I love how Microsoft describes DirectX as "cross-platform" - it supports Windows and (kinda) XBox 360. I guess that for a Microsoftie, those are the only platforms that matter...

                  The progress of OpenGL in the last year, and also OpenCL and other technologies, is encouraging but it's not really meaningful when nVidia is the only company providing driver support. Lucky for me, I'm as much an nVidia fan as an iD one!

                    I would love to try this game out. I have been Linux only for a while and can't wait to have a game like this!

                    • Howdy.

                      Remembered playing Savage all those years ago .

                      Also eager to try this out on my netbook (MSI wind+, so GMA950 gfx lol, this game will rock if it runs on netbooks, i mentioned to my brother that dota/war3 will never die, as war3 runs on netbooks, so everyone will just move to that!), as well as giving it a crack on my dual core GTX260+ powered machine.

                      Lets see how well ubuntu likes it

                        I'd like to request a key, I loved the first two games they made savage 1 and 2.

                        • Hi, I'd like to request a beta key as well. My friend recommended this to me saying it's like DotA except with better graphics. Hope to have a good experience playing. See you guys on the battlefield.

                          • Hot damn, three-hundred posts in less than 24 hours!? This must be a new record.

                            And yeah, I'd like to give the beta a shot, at least.

                              • Me too!

                                I'd like to get my hands on one of these keys too, please!
                                .
                                Great work from S2 Games on their game engine supporting so many platforms with graphics 'that' beautiful, great gameplay, tons of characters on screen and running amazingly smooth (as I saw on the videos, have to test by myself yet). If they find market for selling the engine too, just like the guys from Unigine Corp., them we cold see more titles being released with 0-day GNU/Linux support from their licensees. It would be great if you could have an interview with someone from S2 Games Michael, and ask if they intend to release their middleware for third-part developers anytime soon. Although it sure doesn't look as pretty as Unigine, it tackles another game niche where running smoothly with tons of units on-screen is more important than supporting the latest OpenGL extensions and effects, and provide for more creative gameplay.
                                .
                                I'm now downloading Savage 2 too. This really seems to be a great game engine and very versatile too. The guys at S2 Games are doing a great work and serve as example to the people that say that it's not possible.
