So the games actually in development using Unity 3D. Therefore a Linux and Ubuntu release should be in order, right?
Well I created a post in the Steam Discussions to vote for native support. We have reached out to Bad Seed, yet there is no reply just yet. Hence the Steam post.
So INSIDIA is a free-to-play online strategy title. Which combines tactical planning and cunning deception. Facing off in 1v1 turn-based combat. While trying to dominate and counter their opponent’s moves within the games map.
“We are delighted to launch the Open Beta of INSIDIA”, said Gianpaolo Greco, Producer of Bad Seed. “Now all competitive turn-based strategy fans can join the post-apocalyptic mayhem. And refine their strategies while the game is still in development”.
Insidia Gameplay Trailer
Each INSIDIA player ﬁghts to secure critical objects. All in order to destroy the enemy’s defenses and gain outright victory. So choose from a colorful roster of wild characters. Including fierce punks, mutated wizards and steampunk knights. Which forms the core of a player’s fully customizable hand-picked team of champions. Since each have their own unique set of abilities and skills.
Champions are setup into three different abilities, Passive, Active and Ultimate. Passive abilities allow player characters to act automatically to events and scenarios. Active abilities allow the champion to use their signature ability every time a champion is in use. Ultimate abilities require an energy cost per use. Since energy is a resource in INSIDIA that is passively generated each turn.
Dominating the map with carefully thought out moves and utilizing a champion with the right abilities are essential to become victorious. Once a base is vulnerable, a champion can sabotage it to achieve victory. INSIDIA will ultimately provide players with 12 different champions to choose from along with 36 different skins and now offers the initial 6 champions for its Open Beta launch with new characters unlocking every month.
Developer Bad Seed is setting its sights on eSports later in the year. So INSIDIA will be the first indie game to come to FACEIT’s eSports platform after full release.
INSIDIA is available free-to-play on Steam Early Access for Mac and Windows. Yet hopefully we will see native Linux and Ubuntu support.
