We are getting even closer with Online Multiplayer through Steam. Like an Alien Spawner deep within the hive, bug after bug has been swatted down; only to find a few more lurking within.We’ve improved player synchronization, matchmaking performance, controller and input complications and a host of other issues giving us even greater confidence that we are nearly there. Thanks again for all your support!

Where is MAC/Linux?

We’re working on those game versions too – but they are not yet complete as we’ve been focused on getting Online Co-op out. Don’t worry they are coming very soon. Keep in mind, you can redeem your key on steam NOW and as soon as these builds become available you can play! Thanks for bearing with us!
