Jarheads squad based shooter in development

jarheads squad based shooter in development for linux mac windows

Jarheads is a bloody squad based tactical shooter in development for Linux, Mac and Windows via Steam. Complete with full voxel-based scene destruction. Complete the varied objectives methodically, or just blast your way through.

Outland now available on Steam, Linux and Mac release coming

Finnish studio +Housemarque, best known for PlayStation Network darlings #SuperStardustHD and Resogun, has taken its 2011 PSN and XBLA #platformer Outland and dropped it onto Steam. The game will normally be priced at $9.99, but you can score it for 15% off until October 6. It’s only available for Windows PC users now, but Linux and Mac versions will arrive at a later date.

Outland combines the non-linear exploration of titles like Metroid or Guacamelee! with the polarity-switching mechanic of the Treasure shooter Ikaruga. Just as in that latter game, red and blue bullets will fill the screen like locusts, and you can absorb them by flipping your polarity to match the bullets’ color. You don’t have to tackle the adventure alone, as you can partner up online to handle unique two-man challenges.

A special edition of the game featuring a digital artbook and the soundtrack will be released in due time. If you can’t wait until then, you can buy Outland now and purchase those extra goodies as DLC.
