Planetary Annihilation To Have Linux Support

August 19, 2012 in News

That was a fun headline to write. Sounds like a sinister plot.

Uber Entertainment have added the promise of Linux support to their Kickstarter for Planetary Annihilation, and not as a stretch goal. The funding is now at $453,000 of their $900,000 goal with 26 days to go. Platforms now confirmed are Windows, OSX and Linux. The rate of funding seems to have flattened out a bit over the past few days, so it will be interesting to see if this announcement affects it in the coming days.

What’s also interesting is that people are requesting OUYA support. My concern with this is that once you add a device into the mix with a controller-based control scheme, there is the risk that the game design itself will be affected.
