Linux!

We’ve finally managed to port Void Invaders to Linux! Right now, the official supported distros are Debian and its most common variants, including Ubuntu, Xubuntu and Lubuntu. Other distributions may work, but you’ll have to install the required libraries manually, and we currently can’t offer support. If you use Debian (or one of its friends), you can use the “Play install dependencies” launch option to install necessary libraries, after which the game can be played.

Linux-specific bugs can be reported here.

Many thanks to our friend Flippylosaurus who helped with troubleshooting and who created the install scripts.

About Music Mode

We’d like to apologise again for Music Mode not being released with this update. Real life got in the way and we didn’t find time to turn it into something worth playing. That’s why we decided to postpone it indefinitely.

That’s all folks!

We’re pretty sure that this will be the last major update for Void Invaders (though we’ll stick around and try to fix any bugs you may find). We’ve had a great time working on Void Invaders, but everything comes to an end. After having worked on it for nearly two years, we’re ready to start working on something new.

Having a game on Steam truly has been an amazing experience, so thank you all for supporting us. We also genuinely hope you guys will enjoy the new update.

By the way, Void Invaders is 83% off right now as well! Be sure to spread the word!

Have fun and thanks for playing Void Invaders!!!

Quick Announcement - Ultra Update almost finished

Hi guys,

The Void Invaders Ultra Update is almost there! It will feature a new game mode, new levels and enemies, a new skin, additional settings and options, performance and general improvements, bug fixes and more!

We’re sorry we’ve kept you guys waiting so long, and we have some bad news as well. Personal problems, combined with a lack of motivation, have forced us to indefinitely postpone Music Mode. Apologies to those who were looking forward to it!

Right now, we’re tweaking the last couple things, while a friend is working on getting the Linux build working. We hope to have the update done as soon as possible (yes, we’ve said this before, but it’s for real now!)

Thanks for sticking with us.
