The Last Federation, a strategy title with turn-based tactical combat developed and published on Steam by Arcen Games will also get a Linux version.
The Last Federation is a different kind of strategy because it covers the entire solar system and follows the rise and fall of entire nations. It's difficult to describe the gameplay and even the developer had to resort to sarcasm.
“Look, I'm not going to tell you what to do. My understanding is that you're trying to form the solar system's first-and-last unified federation, and that's a noble enough cause. But right now nobody wants that except you, and you've got 8 very diverse, very angry races to either unify or exterminate. So... good luck with that. I'll help how I can,” says the developer on the official Steam website.
The players will get to control the outcome of the game through turn-based tactical combat and they will get to manage eight races that have very distinct personalities and attributes.
The system requirements are also quite low, even if we take into account the nice graphics employed by the game: Ubuntu 10.10 or later, although other unsupported distros may work, a 2.2Ghz CPU, and a video card capable of running the game in a resolution of 1024*768.
The Last Federation is expected to arrive in exactly one week, on April 19.
