So, there is something unique that’s just around the corner – a new adventure in the realm of space and stars. This isn’t just any ordinary journey; it’s called Underspace, crafted by the solo developer behind those quirky Thomas the Tank Engine mods in Starfield and Skyrim. That’s Trainwiz for you! He’s also just announced that this epic sandbox spacefighter RPG is hitting Early Access on April 10, 2024. And the best part, native Linux support is due to be in the mix.

There are indeed plans for Linux support…

Exciting news from Camlann Games, the publisher behind Underspace. They’re keen to let us know about the native support in the works. While they haven’t locked in a native build for Early Access just yet, there’s a strong possibility that the full version 1.0 will launch with Linux support. And they’re using Unity 3D for game development, which is fantastic news for Proton 7.0-6 support – the Demo is performing brilliantly.

Underspace will have you dive into a universe where every star system is a unique creation. Each sector is a treasure trove waiting to be explored. This isn’t your typical space story. You’re stepping into the boots of Kardoz, a once-mighty noble now living on the edge as a starchaser. It’s a wild galaxy out there, teeming with pirates, cultists, and all sorts of cosmic dangers.
