As well as Windows and Mac. So pay $1 or more to access Steam keys. With half of the game actually available with native support. There are decent games, while there are a few great Windows games.

mothergunship check out the newest trailer for windows games on steam and linux

Be it man or tree-frog, everyone is welcome in the resistance. Since players will be helping to fight off unending hordes of alien invaders.
Yet this is the second trailer for MOTHERGUNSHIP. So utilize humor and the sheer havoc provided by ceaseless waves of weapon-fire.
The developers at Grip Digital and Terrible Posture Games will literally immerse players into bullet-hell. Seeing the player is stuck aboard an orbiting spacecraft. While fighting interminable, procedurally generated enemies. All in an attempt to make it to a final boss. And due to sheer size alone, this instils fear in the hearts of even the bravest resistance commanders.

Linux and MOTHERGUNSHIP:

“I’m afraid I can’t talk much more about Linux yet. There are a few people on the dev team who are absolute Linux diehards. I will not likely know more until much further into development, about whether the game is destined for Linux.”

So MOTHERGUNSHIP is an explosive collision of a first-person-shooter. A bullet-hell genre, while the player faces off against nearly endless swarms of mechanical enemies. All while aboard randomly generated alien spaceships. With some of the largest bosses the FPS genre has ever seen. Therefore MOTHERGUNSHIP brings a fresh experience into the first-person shooter genre. Since this combines unique features and old-school first-person-shooter mechanics. Since the games coming to Steam for Windows, and hopefully Linux. Considering the fact that Unreal Engine 4 is being used for development. Check out the trailer:

MOTHERGUNSHIP Features:

  • Shoot – Face off against overwhelming odds in a brutal, non-stop combat. Forget negotiation, forget stealth, forget reloads. Just let go and kill them all.
  • Craft – For the first time ever, build guns exactly the way you like them, with the deepest gun-crafting system ever seen in a videogame.
  • Want to have a gun with twelve barrels that shoots homing rockets? Go for it!
  • Resist – Join the ranks of global resistance movement. Taking back Earth together with your friends. Cut through the alien fleet to reach the ultimate goal – bringing down the MotherGunShip.

MOTHERGUNSHIP is coming with a full release to Steam in 2018 for Windows. Yet Linux and Mac could be in the mix as well. Since it is still to early in the games development, there is no formal confirmation. Visit mothergunship.com to enroll into the resistance movement now.

Helium Rain is a single-player space sim for Linux and Windows. Since the games now available on Steam Early Access, built with Unreal Engine 4. So we are keen to share some news.
Gameplay pits the player at the helm of a spacefaring company. Exploration, trading, station-building, piracy are all options. Helium Rain relies on both spaceflight and strategy, mixed together in a creative way. Destroying a freighter has a direct impact on the economy.

  • Strategy gameplay with procedural quests, world exploration, technology upgrades
  • 12 playable ships with weapon and engine upgrades

Since space strategy sim genre is somewhat of a niche genre. Yet Deimos Games take things in a different direction.

Your ships have generators, radiators, weapons, engines, cargo bays or life support systems. Since they all work together. Every thruster on the ship plays a role. So make sure to aim for engines to keep your enemies up. Or send them spinning around by destroying power stations. Most ships have more than thirty individual parts. So players can customize the most important parts. Maintaining the main engines, attitude control thrusters, weapons and hull colors.

Your competitors are independent factions, companies with the same goal as yours – ruling the system. They will try to undercut you, or even attack you if you become a threat to them. But don’t be too quick to destroy them, as war can break the supply of resources you depend on ! Attacking freighters will destroy resources, making them costlier, with the potential to cause an economic crisis.

Helium Rain is available in Early Access on Steam for Linux and Windows. Yet there will be DRM-free releases for the games Windows and Linux builds as well.
