    Folks, Legends of Eisenwald is closing soon; they've promised Linux support already, though delayed a few months from the main Windows release... unless we can pledge it up another $25K or so to help them guarantee a simultaneous release on all three main desktop plaforms (L/M/W)! Wouldn't that be awesome? If you like gorgeous turn-based medieval strategy playing natively on your box, this looks like a lot of fun. If not, please consider supporting the Two Guys from Andromeda ( http://tgakick.com ). You can check out LoE alpha gameplay videos that they've posted... it looks awesome to me!!

    Again, for convenince, here's the URL: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...s-of-eisenwald

    It looks like the $35 (a bit over 20) is a good reward tier, as it gets the game, soundtrack, beta access, and all future DLC on the game. Of course, the higher ones are better, but start where you can

      SpaceVenture seems to have really lost a lot of steam as of late and if it continues as it is going now it may not make funding. Gotta keep getting the word out there so the creators of Space Quest can bring a hilarious new adventure to Linux.

        Cloudberry Kingdom is planning a Linux port, but currently the rewards are for the Steam or Wii U versions.

        I've been playing the beta, and it is ridiculously good fun.

            Carmageddon Reincarnation just got confirmed!
            Wh00t-Wh00t!!!

            There'll be a DRM-free copy of the game featuring fulll single player and lan-multiplayer.
            And it'll also come in Linux/Mac flavour.

            However for online multiplayer we'll have to use Steam but that's also announced for Linux right?:P

              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
