Klei Entertainment (Shank, Don't Starve, Mark of the Ninja) have announced a new turn-based tactical espionage game entitled, Incognita. The trailer suggests gameplay similar to Frozen Synapse or X-Com: Enemy Unknown.

Access to the Alpha is via a Steam key redeemable on pre-order of the game. Two things keep from buying in on this one: unemployment, and it's currently Windows only. The first hurdle is up to me, the second is on Klei Entertainment. However, Klei has released their most-recent titles for Mac and Linux both via Humble Bundles and through Steam, so once this one leaves alpha, we Linux users might be able to join in the fun.

This is a very pretty game that has a cool concept. I want to check it out too, but yeah Windows only... I have come to the conclusion that I want to stick to cross platform stuff. It's simply easier to game when I don't have to be told where and I also like voting with my wallet for developers that care about that sort of thing.

The only real holdouts for cross platform now days are big studios but the only triple A game I want to get that isn't out yet is Wolfenstein: New Order. That said, I hope it at least comes out for Mac but it hasn't been announced so I am not holding my breath :D

I'm in the same place for games now, too: If it's not cross-platform, I have a bias against it already. There are a few exceptions to that rule but their number grows fewer and fewer each day.

Since Fez got released for Linux, I really only have two title that I boot back into Windows for: Sine Mora and Need for Speed: World. Saints Row: The Third plays like crap on my rig or it'd be on that list, too.
