      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.

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

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

      Thanks for the Linux support! Backed and shared!

    13. Erik Günther on September 1, 2012

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

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

    15. Matt Evans on August 31, 2012

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

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

      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!

      Thanks for Linux support!

    19. 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 :)

      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.

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

    24. shawn stokes on August 27, 2012

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

    25. Matt Evans on August 26, 2012

      Yes, Linux please.

      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.

      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.

    38. Martin Hlavac on August 22, 2012

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

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