There may be a lot of RTS’s out there, but there aren’t many like Line War. Since gameplay takes inspiration from classics in the RTS genre plus board games like Axis & Allies. While adding a unique movement system that does away with tedious micromanagement. RTS fans are already taking notice: since its demo release in February. Over 30,000 matches have been played!
However, Linux support still seems to be at large. Studio Centurion just emailed me with an update.
We’re completely stuffed at the moment so Linux support will have to wait until after the summer vacations.
Line War is still coming to Linux. It’s just going to take some time. The developers are swamped with limited time to focus on a port. But the goods news, this is a Unity 3D, which is very playable via Proton. Which is the workaround until the developer has a minute to work on the native port.
