      Thanks so much, I backed this because of the Linux support! Awesome!

    2. Creator Enrico Heine on September 13, 2012

      You need Linux supporters? What do you expect from a Linux Supporter? I can help you with Bug Reports and doing tests on Debian Squeeze 64 Bit with an ATI Radeon HD 6850 running the newest Catalyst Driver including finally working 32 Bit driver Support for older Applications/Games. So let me know if I can help you somehow.

      Linux support? Well why not then.

    4. Creator Esteban on September 9, 2012

      awesome I was not going to back this project but LINUX IS AWESOME and these game is too

    5. Creator Stephen on September 9, 2012

      Was interested in this game but wasn't planning on backing it. Until you guys announced Linux support :-)

    6. Creator Anonymous Coward on September 8, 2012

      Also backed for Linux support!

    7. Creator wallnuss on September 8, 2012

      I just tripled my pledge after reading this :)

    8. Creator Cameron Wiebe on September 7, 2012

      Thank you for supporting linux!

    9. Creator pecanbery on September 7, 2012

      Backed because of the linux support!

    10. Creator stevie on September 6, 2012

      Will the alpha and beta versions of the game also be available for people using Linux?

    11. Creator chip on September 5, 2012

      Linux support for me, another $40 for you :D

    12. Creator Adam Jennings on September 3, 2012

      Thanks for the Linux support! Backed and shared!

    13. Creator Erik Günther on September 1, 2012

      Hay! $1050k mark is passed and no updated poster :D

    14. Creator Joseph Pianta on August 31, 2012

      Sykoste: view
      That was enough to double my pledge! I look forward to a boxed edition filled with miniatures!

    15. Creator Matt Evans on August 31, 2012

      I backed before I learned about Linux support. That is just gravy on top!

    16. Creator ChemicalRascal on August 29, 2012

      Whoop whoop!

    17. Creator cyclooctane on August 29, 2012

      I agree with tnxgalaxy
      As a Linux user I am looking forward to this.
      But for me, real LAN support would be great.

    18. Creator Erich Hoover on August 28, 2012

      I found out about this from phoronix, but had to haggle with myself for a few days about how much to spend. I'm so excited to see such a large scale RTS come to Linux, thanks so much!

    19. Creator elaner on August 28, 2012

      Thanks for Linux support!

    20. Creator tnxgalaxy on August 28, 2012

      my wishes ?
      1) a real LAN support :)
      2) make sure I'll be able to play the game in 10 years, as I did with Total Annihilation (and probably SupCom :)) if it has to have DRMs which I understand, please release a patch that unlocks that in a few years
      3) when the game doesn't make money anymore, that would be awesome if it could be opensources (source code + artwork), with similar plans as Minecraft

      Thanks for reading :)

    21. Creator Andrew Markin on August 28, 2012

      Thnx for Linux support.

    22. Creator Dirk Walter on August 28, 2012

      Thanks for the linux support you got my money. :)

    23. Creator Louis Bergelson on August 27, 2012

      It's exciting to see this coming out for linux. I know it's unlikely, but I would love to see this open sourced. I'm sure you could get a lot of die-hard linux backers to kick in a lot more that way. Since it's being supported by the community it would be great if it was entirely open.

    24. Creator Kyle Oh on August 27, 2012

      Amazing looking game, but Linux was the reason pushing me over the edge to help kick this project. I can't wait! :D

    25. Creator shawn stokes on August 27, 2012

      if we all just give $7 more we would be over

    26. Creator Matt Evans on August 26, 2012

      Yes, Linux please.

    27. Creator George Sedov on August 25, 2012

      If linux is here, so am I :)

    28. Creator Jacques Schaefer on August 25, 2012

      New baken onboard :)

      Linux support.....:D

    29. Creator D. K. Henry on August 25, 2012

      Great job guys. I supported it early on simply because I am a sucker for this kind of RTS, I am even more excited to get my hands on it now !

      P.S. I Have supported at the level to get access to the alpha, and linux is the only OS I have so if you need linux testers look me up.

    30. Creator nibulix on August 25, 2012 is a Backer now!

    31. Creator akaIDIOT on August 25, 2012

    38. Creator Pablo "Diacrítica" on August 23, 2012

      Linux support, and suddenly my money appears.

    40. Creator Colin Clausen on August 22, 2012

      marvin: plug your 60in screen into your computer, the ouya isnt powerful enough to do a game like this, especially not on a 60in screen. Thats just a -sad- fact.

    41. Creator Martin Hlavac on August 22, 2012

      Great news!... It would be great to play game without a need to reboot to another system

    42. Creator Marvin Murdock on August 22, 2012

      Are you thinking of OUYA support? It would be great to smash planets a 60in screen!!!

    43. Creator rickstarter on August 22, 2012

      Just wanted to chime in and say that Linux support got me to chip in too. Looking forward to the finished product!

    44. Creator Shawn MacFarland on August 22, 2012
