Satisfactory factory building support is “possible”

satisfactory factory building support is possible on linux mac with windows pc steam summer sale

Satisfactory factory building support is “possible” for Linux and Mac with Windows PC. According the developer comment from Coffee Stain Studios. Which also has Overwhelmingly Positive reviews on Steam.

Goat Simulator to become an MMO for Linux, Mac and Windows PC?

One of the most delightfully #weirdgames to come out this year is Goat Simulator, which will now receive a #freeexpansion later this month, transforming the #release into a massively multiplayer online game, developer Coffee Stain Studios revealed today. The sociopathic goat rampaging through a small town known for its slapstick physics, intentionally awful glitches, and predilection for explosions.

Why fantasy? Why multiplayer? Why is a walking microwave one of the choices for character class (the others being Tank, Magician, Hunter, “Rouge,” and plain ol’ goat)? Looking at the debut trailer, it seems all the madcap physics and bizarre bugs are present. The level cap is 101, sheep and goat factions are at war, and there are mermaids.

Actually, this is probably the only scene that matters. This is everything you need to know about Goat Simulator:

The MMO-styled Goat MMO Simulator release launches on November 20 as free downloadable content through Steam for those who already own the original title on Windows PC. Goat MMO Simulator will also be playable on Linux and Mac with full controller support.

Sanctum 2 now available on Linux and Mac

Coffee Stain Studios, now mostly goat-developers, but also Sanctum-#developers are happy to announce that Mac and Linux support is finally #available for Sanctum 2. Everyone who already owns Sanctum 2 on PC will also be able to play it on Linux and Mac.

Furthermore, Sanctum 2 will be Free To Play over the weekend and 85% off (a whole $2.24 USD) to purchase during a  Free Weekend on Steam together with all other Sanctum products.

“The Mac and Linux ports of Sanctum 2 was initially intended to launch a long time ago, but was severely delayed because of circumstances we couldn’t control. At least the ports are finally here and we hope that the Mac and Linux crowd will be happy that they can finally try Sanctum 2 out!” – Anton Westbergh, CEO

In Sanctum 2, you will have to utilize elements of multiple gameplay genres to succeed. Build towers and walls during the building phase before the enemies attack, then jump into the fray and help your towers blast everything to pieces in FPS-mode. You can progress through the single player campaign yourself, or play up to 4-player co-op with your friends to discover the secrets of the planet LOEK III and why the aliens are so set on destroying the Cores you are sworn to protect.

Features

  • Tower defense – Design complex mazes and build powerful towers to stop the enemies from destroying the Core
  • First Person Shooter – Don’t just sit back and watch, jump into the action yourself!
  • 4 playable character classes – Each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses.
  • Vast customization system – pick perks, or make the game crazy hard by adding Feats of Strength.
  • In-game visual novel – Unlock a comic-book page for every map you beat to discover the secrets of LOEK III
  • Progression system – Increase your rank and unlock new weapons, towers and perks!
  • 4 player co-op – Progress through the storyline yourself or team up with other players whenever you want!

About Sanctum

Sanctum revolutionized Tower Defense back in 2011 with the FPS take on the genre. The concept proved a success with Sanctum being one of the most sold indies on Steam that year. In 2013 Coffee Stain launched Sanctum 2 which added further depth, more action, four different playable characters, and more customization.

Almost 1 million' sales for Goat Simulator

Goat Simulator sales almost at 1 million

Of all the many “simulator” games, Goat Simulator stands out as one of the silliest and craziest to catch heat. That’s reflected by the #gamesales to date of “almost 1 million,” as announced by #CoffeeStainStudio’s Armin Ibrisagic at #GDCEurope this morning. It’s no surprise, then, that the studio’s now working on bringing the game to iOS and Android.

To ram those figures home, Ibrisagic said Coffee Stain made back the money it invested into Goat Simulator in “ten minutes.” Perhaps crazier, the game generated more revenue in four months than the studio had made in the previous four years.

Goat Simulator represents a surreal and unexpected success for the Sanctum studio, which, as Ibrisagic explained, approached the game as no more than a light-hearted change of pace after working on a far more serious tower-defense series for years. The moment Coffee Stain realized it had to make Goat Simulator into a real game was when its debut trailer racked up a million views. The studio diverted all employees to working on it and rapidly started adding content to it ahead of its – no kidding – April 1 release. That extra content included a giraffe – after all, according to Ibrisagic, all animals are goats.

Goat Simulator set unleash in North American stores this July

Goat Simulator set release retail box in North American stores this July

Goat Simulator has been available as a #Steam download since April 1, but this is a physical game about physical things getting physically wrecked by a very physical goat; doesn’t it deserve a physical release? #DeepSilver thinks so, which is why it’s acquired North American distribution rights from #developer Coffee Stain Studios.

You will be able to pick up a boxed copy of the game at participating retail stores starting in mid-July. Thankfully, while goats are known to eat just about anything, this even-toed ungulate will go easy on your cash. The boxed copy – like its Steam counterpart (Linux, Mac, Windows) – will cost $9.99 (currently on sale for $7.99).

Of course, the goat-in-a-game-shop news might sound familiar to those living across the pond; it’s been available in UK stores since May.  No word on what platforms will be included in the boxed version.

Deep Silver Joins the Funny Farm, Acquires the North American Distribution Rights for Goat Simulator for PC

– The Baaaadest Video Game Simulator Showcases Goats Gone Mad With Ridiculous Head Butts, Jetpacks and A Super Sticky Tongue –

Larkspur, Calif., June 27, 2014 – Today Deep Silver announced it has acquired the North American PC distribution rights for Goat Simulator from Coffee Stain Studios – the most unique goat simulator of the goat simulator genre and quite possibly the funniest game in the history of games, ever, forever.

Available in participating retail stores for $9.99 by mid-July, the title includes the patch 1.1 content with new goats, the ability to ride a bike and skateboard, a new map and local four-player split screen multiplayer mode. New game modes include Capture the Flag, Racing Mode, and Ragdoll Hockey.

Supporting Steam Workshop, Goat Simulator players can create their own goats, levels, missions and more. While the main character may get hit by a truck, head butt a car until it explodes or perform endless other acts of rampage with style, rest assured that the goat will never die and a humans’ desire to destroy things can forever be fulfilled. The slow motion controls, exaggerated physics, ridiculous bugs and random events in the small, yet dense maps make it easy to enjoy this sandbox goat simulator. Strap on the jetpack, jump on a trampoline and head butt your way into video game absurdity with Goat Simulator.
