Linux update

January 14th, 2014

We recently updated Solar Flux on Linux to add fixes for those who were unable to play due to an issue with nVidia graphics cards, and launching the game on older Ubuntu based distributions running an older version of glibc. Sincere apologies to those affected by these issues.

Many thanks for your patience while these issues were caught, and fired in to a nearby sun! ;)

Easy to learn, hard to master. It starts out with easy missions but they get more complex and difficult as you go. It's a pretty fun game though; it's a nice break from the shoot-'em-up games. It requires a lot of patience, but I find it very fun! Love this game! :)

This game is addictive and fun if you like strategy type game's,and its very nice visually too. I'd like to see more casual game's like this or simillar, I'm enjoying it so far. It has a lot of levels each one a different challenge, please consider giving it a go, I did and I have enjoyed playing this little gem, I also found it Quiet relaxing too. It is a nice change from other more tedious and aggressive type game's. I love this game. ; )))

A beautiful, relaxing puzzle game that's all about momentum, inertia and orbits. A spiritual successor to Osmos.

Not really my thing. Its "novel" control system of smushing your ship away by clicking feels simultaneously floaty and yet too-precise. They don't believe in using words for menus and such wherever possible, which means it's sometimes obnoxious to navigate things. Core gameplay is not very engaging (again, to me) because it's about delicate swoops and fast reaction times. I can definitely see where other people could have fun, and it has a nice trance-void-techno aesthetic, but if you have similar tastes to me (meaty puzzles and RPGs, keeping twitch-gaming to FPS and the like) the game is going to feel immaterial and bland. 4/10, but depending on how much you enjoy the presentation/style this could go up to 8/10. I'm not recommending, but how good it is feels way more subjective than most games.
