    Hmm, Zombie Playground has a Linux version at the 1 million mark which seems... unlikely with out a very very large push coming in from somewhere.

    Damn but it has some excellent concept art though.

      Xenonauts

      Just played both and they do have the same inspiration (XCOM), but take very different directions. UFI:AI seems to favor the eye candy and has a new UI, while Xenonauts is sticking closer to the original XCOM and refining/polishing it. Personally I think the Xenonauts demo was more enjoyable than the latest UFO:AI release. Xenonauts has also taken Linux support out of the stretch goals and is working on having Mac and Linux demos up in a few weeks. It looks to be using Winelib rather than a native port, but it played fairly well in Wine as is.

        I don't mean to discourage anyone, but to me it seems a bit rude to announce Linux support at over 10x their funding goal when they will be providing both PC and Mac OSX from the very start.

        The game does seem to have some big names behind it though, it's a pity it's not getting a lot of attention. I get the feeling that the sheer amount of kickstarter old school gaming revivals are starting to dilute the pledges and there's a bit of "kickstarter fatigue" happening for pledgers.

          Indeed, however I sent them a message about it and from their response (as well as their latest update) they are looking into putting Linux into a lower tier. I'm hoping either the 100k or at most the 250k

            Yeah, especially since Two Guys SpaceVenture announced Linux (and Android!) at launch. To be fair, it is in the style of classic Sierra adventure games, which probably translates well to many different platforms, and ZPG is an online 3d rpg.

            Though, if I want a great zombie game I can play with others, I'll wait for L4D2 on Linux. If I want a cartoony style, I'd rather be an idiot in space, like in SpaceVenture, and like I was whan I was kid playing Roger Wilco in SQ.

            BTW! Exciting news there, SpaceVenture has way passed the 50% mark, and is at ~$275K, so it's a great time to jump on and keep the momentum going. The way it's trending, it looks like it will just barely make it, but it will be a fight to the end, and it needs pretty much every Linux game fan it can get interested!!

            That's no trouble, though; us Linux geeks are used to fighting to the end

              Yeah, it was looking rough for a while, but is now up to $275K with a bit under 2 weeks to go... any Linux game fans who like adventure games and sci-fi satire need to jump on board ( http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spaceventure/two-guys-spaceventure-by-the-creators-of-space-que/comments )

                SpaceVenture just made $300K!! Tiers have been enhanced again, and there should be a new playable concept art (prototype 3) in a couple of days... exciting times for Linux adventure gaming.

                  Well it doesn't really matter. It is not likely to succeed unless something drastic happens (and so far, none of the updates has made much of a dent in the progress)

                  Looks like its gonna be short 100k, which is quite significant.

                    SpaceVenture has really picked up steam over the last week or so. They've been doing a bit over 15k per day on average, and did double that yesterday due to a spike from doing a Reddit AMA. With 4 days left and just over 100k to go it's going to be close but it's certainly feasible. Kickstarter projects almost always get a big push during the final 2 days. If the current trend of 15k per day continues they will be about 70k short with 2 days to go. 70k in the final 2 days is definitely feasible, though I'll feel better if they're a lot closer than that, or better yet fully funded by then.

                        Y'know even though the Kickstarter model means the project is either fully funded or not funded at all, when it gets so close to the threshold surely you could find someone to give you a ~$50000 loan and repay something like $51k 24 hours later...

                        Anyway, I threw a few dollars their way

                          Just 3 days left to support the Two Guys SpaceVenture!

                          Hi there, I just wanted to give everyone an update on the SpaceVenture Kickstarter by the Creators of Space Quest:

                          We are currently hovering at 420k and need 80k to seal the deal but there is only 71 hours left so if ever any of you guys and gals were on the fence about Joining the cause for Andromeda, now would be the time!

                          Tons of awesome stuff even in the 30 dollar tier but the real meat is about 125 *Buckazoids come to mind* Of course, ANY amount at all that you pledge will mean the world to us. We love our $15 backers to pieces , after all!

                          Go here http://tgakick.com and peruse the rewards and I think you'll like what you see!

                          Be a part of bringing this classic game developing duo from the Gold age of SIERRA back to the forefront to join their pals!

                          Thanks a lot and hopefully we'll see you on the comments page!

                                Crucial new development in the last hours of the SpaceVenture Kickstarter!

                                A very big new development in the SpaceVenture Kickstarter Community, Folks!


                                WIN SOME CLASSICS! PLEDGE AT LEAST $30 TO HAVE A CHANCE!

                                A fan, Rudy Marchant is offering up something for everyone to take part in.

                                with more than 90% of the goal reached, pledger Rudy Marchant gives the fans even more reason to contribute to the cause! He will give away three ultra-rare highly-collectible Sierra games to three randomly picked fans who pledged $30 or more!

                                Just think! If we can get this bastard funded before the end of the campaign, we should see some nifty Stretch goals being established!
