Super Linux Squadron!

Hey everyone! Long time no space! We bring news from the front! :cobalt:

Super Galaxy Squadron EX Turbo is now available for Linux + Steam OS!

It should work right out of the box (32bit only for now) so give it a go!

We're just as committed as we've ever been to keeping our games up to date and always making them better so... we'll be porting SGS EX T over to GMS 2 so we can create an even better Linux version, Mac version and console versions! That's right - even Nintendo Switch :chartreuse:

We're also going to be looking into adding long standing requests such as remappable keys, gameplay + boss tweaks and maybe even some cool progression systems. :fuchsia:

Oh yeah, we've also permanently dropped the price to a firm, flat $10.00

Who would think we'd still be updating a fun little game that Nick made for charity back in 2015? :teal:

We did. Because we're New Blood - and we're good like that :TR:

About This Game

2438. Eleven years after the First Ceti War. The United Interstellar Federation and a secluded alien race from Tau Ceti are locked in a tense stalemate. Seventeen of the best pilots in the Federation have been recruited to single handedly win the inevitable second war.

Super Galaxy Squadron EX Turbo is an expansion/remaster/one-step-from-a-sequel to 2015's Super Galaxy Squadron, and takes the original game's frantic action and modern accessibility to vastly greater heights. New and returning features include:

  • Seventeen ships with unique stats and weapons to suit a variety of playstyles
  • Six stages of classic shmup action (and savage bosses) in Arcade Mode
  • An infinite onslaught to satisfy your scoring itch in Endless Mode
  • The supreme timed challenge of Boss Rush Mode
  • A range of difficulty options, from calm and newbie-friendly to basically impossible
  • Fully voiced cutscenes for the two people looking for a good story
  • New mechanics like Overdrive & Focus that help you kill more things and get more points
  • A (nearly) complete graphical overhaul
  • Still a whole lot of explosions (like you were ever worried)

Feeling nostalgic, or just want to see what's changed? Super Galaxy Squadron EX Turbo includes the original Super Galaxy Squadron, so load up your smaller, slightly less pretty ship for a trip down (two year old) memory lane. Or don't. It's up to you.
