interstellar space genesis 4x strategy support for linux and windows pc

Interstellar Space: Genesis is a new 4x strategy game coming to Windows, but has Linux support in the wings. Thanks to developer Praxis Games. The games due to release on Steam soon. So we have details about support.

Interstellar Space: Genesis is a spiritual successor to Master of Orion II: Battle at Antares. Including other classic 4X strategy titles from the ‘90s. Releasing on Steam, July 25th for Windows PC. But what about native support for the single player game?

Linux Support:

We wish to port the game to Linux at some point. Since we’re in Unity it shouldn’t be too hard.

The Linux confirmation is a plus. Since the games due to release on Steam this week. The port which is also mentioned in FAQ will not be happening right away.
Which means patience for some. But I have tested Interstellar Space: Genesis via Proton and works well. And still the best workaround for Unity based games. At least until the native release.

Interstellar Space: Genesis is the brainchild of Praxis Games. Both Adam Solo and Hugo Rosado make up the Portuguese studio. The team behind well known sci fi strategy website SpaceSector.
