Crimsonland top-down shooter released for Linux and SteamOS on sale

One of the more awesome #topdownshooter’s Crimsonland is now #available for Linux and #SteamOS as planned. 10tons wanted to make a truly cross-platform game and now it’s finally here. So, if you haven’t picked up a copy yet – now would be a perfect day, as the title is now 60% off on Steam ($4.99 USD).

10tons also implemented gamepad support for all platforms and the team did mention both Linux and Mac could use some improvements with their gamepad support. The Linux version was mainly developed with Steam OS and Ubuntu in mind, the game should work on other distros as well. Other than that the porting process looks good.

Originally, Crimsonland was greenlit at the end of 2013, 10tons decided to give the game a complete tune-up. The brand new 2014 version introduces countless gameplay fixes, a new chapter with new enemies, new perks, and new weapons. On top of that they’ve done a complete overhaul with the artwork too. Thousands of aliens, zombies, giant spiders, mutant lizards, and more are on the attack – can you survive the onslaught?

In Crimsonland you will unlock new weapons and perks constantly improving your abilities and arsenal. Your screen will be filled with literally hundreds of monsters and thousands of giblets. Grab your gun and prepare for endless hours of intense top-down shooter fun.


  • Sixty quests in the Quest mode
  • Up to four player local co-op
  • Five survival modes: Survival, Rush, Blitz, Weapon Picker, and Nukefism
  • 30 unique weapons
  • 55 awesome perks
  • Online leaderboards: global and friends
  • Leaderboards for co-op: Gang up on them!

Crimsonland does features up to four player local co-op. All game modes including the quest can be played in co-op mode. There are also separate leaderboards for co-op games so gather your friends and show the internet who wields the gauss shotgun like a pro!

It took 10tons a bit more than a year from the old Windows version from 2003 to the current multiplatform version of Crimsonland. There are still some things that need to be done with the game, but most of the planned work is now complete.

10tons are always working to develop awesome new games, but you can follow the team on Twitter, Goolge+ or Facebook for more news.
