Savage ships with Linux client
Well, before I was interested, now I'm down right intrigued. Savage from S2 Games is a game where you play a RTS from a first person perspective. One of the things that make this title unique in my mind is the inclusion of multiplayer mode, where all the units are actual human players, much like Natural Selection. Over at Linux Games, I noticed that S2Games has issued a press release saying that the game will ship with a Linux client on the CD. Considering how much Natural Selection I have played, I now have to check this game out, as this is one genre I would definately like to see more of.
Did I mention you also get a spot in the beta if you pre-ordered? How's that for service! Not just pre-ordering on thier site either, but in EB Games and Gamestop. It sounds like a great idea, people who already are interested in your game can offer thier opinions to help balance the game. That's the audience that would be most vocal on release, so why not take thier input and actually put it in the box instead of releasing a patch to fix the game 3 months later when nobody cares?
