    Purge looks awesome too, kind of like graphical style of Borderlands and game-play of Mirrors Edge
    Tower of Guns looks very unique and blends tower defense and FPS action

    The SKYES attracted my interest as a MMORPG / post-apocalyctic passionate (realy nothing interesting in the panorama from ages),also had a look on gamesite, the project seems strongh but not so much videos or screenshot.
    Tryed to contact them with FB for a confirmation about linux version purpose.
    They actualy are in pre-alpha stage

    Yep but nothing like that one looks (for me of course) after the great disappointment about Fallen Earth no more post-apocalyptic

    Interesting...
    A few "gold" test results here on WineHQ
    The only library needed seems to be IE7 or IE8

    Fallen Earth seems like a rip-off of Fallout 3

    Ok man,Steam's successful installation, wine 1.7.30 with just d3dx9,Ie8 and msxml4 librarys, did'nt had so much times to test it but the game run well as a first impression. I'll report more in the next days after more accurate test with also latest wine version, reports about gameplay will probably needs around 2/3 weeks.

    Very nice! Thanks for checking it out.
    Find out if it still has some bugs or if they have patched up those issues.
    I love it when Wine works!

    Apparently the game become more interesting at high level with more contest implemented, for now i can say:
    Tutorial it's quite good and easy, grafic it's rather old, movement are slightly slow but fluid.
    No bugs detected for now after 4/5 hours in game

    Cool, I'll look into it. Fallen Earth is Free-To-Play right?
    I might even do a guide for it
