The independent diversion, which Do My Best Games and TinyBuild propelled for PC, Mac, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this late spring, got to be distinctly accessible for Linux a week ago.
In spite of the fact that the post-human advancement class is genuinely swarmed space, the zombie-slaughtering loathsomeness ride has earned for the most part positive audits from veteran recreations pundits, who valued its account and level of detail.

The capacity to make a Linux port pretty effectively on the Unity stage drove the organization to settle on the choice, he told LinuxInsider.

Open Source Demand
