Linux support for The Red Solstice

A native Linux build is in the works, Ironward developed The Red Solstice using their own in-house game engine but have yet to release a timeline for the port. Do note, the engine uses OpenAI and OpenGL, which has been implemented in the development process from the very beginning.
The Red Solstice works really well under WINE, which we tested flawlessly using the PlayonLinux Steam installer. Even back when the title was in Alpha, Linux Game News had our hands on the stand alone install with success.
