Few days back we covered Airmech, an Action/RTS hybrid game for Linux made completely from open source tools . The game has made great progress since then and a native Linux version is still on the cards.
However, you can already try the game on Linux as a native client version (alpha) has already been released on Chrome Web Store. I have just tried out the game on Chrome and can say that its amazing even in alpha. Very smooth , fast gameplay, impressive visuals and no frame rate issues.
Check out the video below:
Try it yourself. Join the Airmech Google Group and download the game from here. You will have to login with Your Google account credentials to gain access to alpha. Just make sure these three things:
- Use Chrome. Chromium may have issues with Native Client
- Type chrome://flags in address bar and enable Override software rendering list (browser restart required)
- Native Client is enabled in chrome://flags
