Ratten Reich anticipated RTS game hits Kickstarter for Windows PC, but it’s also coming to Linux. Thanks to details from developer Metall Adler Studio. Which is doing very well via their crowdfunding campaign.

Indie game publisher, Crytivo, is excited to announce the Kickstarter launch of Ratten Reich. A highly anticipated RTS game inspired by the World Wars of our own history. Then dive into this unique and beautifully grim world. One that sees manlike creatures fight for power, honor, and vengeance. All due to raising €27,000 ($31,912 USD) by October 7th, and already 35% funded.

Ratten Reich is a grim and unforgiving world, where war has continued for many years. The war is fought between rats, mice, roaches, and lizards alike. Slum like cities, burnt corpses, steam tanks, soldiers in imperial uniforms, and armor. And the soil, the mother of all, full of bomb craters and battle scars. Millions upon millions of fates, dreams — nothing more than ashes from the fires now. Since this is the story Metall Adler is trying to tell. All in an RTS game with interesting and unusual mechanics. Check out the trailer below.

Ratten Reich certainly offers a unique style of RTS gameplay. According to the Kickstarter campaign, the game is only available for Windows PC. Or so we thought. This is not the case, according to an email reply from Metall Adler Studio.

…the project is being created on Unreal Engine 4 and we can expect porting to Linux.

While this is good news for Ratten Reich. The developers have yet to clarify a day one release. Or even when we can expect a Linux port. So far only the confirmation for Linux itself. But since Unreal Engine 4 is being used, this explains the level of detail in the game. The art style is visually stunning.

Adorned with slums, charred corpses, steam tanks, and uniformed soldiers. War has left nothing but scars on the mothering soil of the world. Millions upon millions of fates and dreams have turned to ash in Ratten Reich.

The Tzar army of roaches, monitor lizards, dozens of mice led countries. Doing so under the flags of the great Franx and Angul. Who will clash against the might of the Ratten Reich in an alliance with the lizards. Who also live in the land of the rising sun.

Since there is no game Demo available, the developer is offering Free Beta Access. Due to be available on Steam, due to offering at least Proton support.

If you’re unable to donate to the Kickstarter, that’s no problem! We are planning to run a free Closed Beta which will be available to everyone who signed up. For a limited time ONLY. This opportunity differs from the unlimited game access that Alpha and Beta backers will receive. The Closed Beta will allow for everyone to be involved in making Ratten Reich a better community-oriented game.

Should the Kickstarter be fully funded, the dev’s will implement:

  • 3 full-fledged companies for a gameplay total of 15 hours
  • Dozens of playable characters and over 70 different blowing units
  • Customization techniques
  • Huge variety of small arms
  • Singleplayer and Co-op skirmish matches
  • Multiplayer

Ratten Reich the highly anticipated RTS is coming to both Linux and Windows PC. This very vivid looking game is certainly worth supporting via Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.
