GOTLAND, SWEDEN – July 12, 2012 – ThreeGates today confirmed that it will be offering a Linux version of Legneds of Aethereus, its action RPG game currently in production. The game project has nine days left to raise the remaing funds and reach the $25,000 funding goal on Kickstarter. Other recent updates include a confirmed version for Macintosh, new digital rewards, a DRM-free version and more. To support the project, please visit:

“After looking into Unity 4.0 and running some test builds on the 4.0 Beta, ThreeGates is proud to announce that we will be able to provide a Linux version of Legends of Aethereus,” said Don Geyer, CEO of ThreeGates. "In our opinion the Linux Community has been somewhat forgotten by the game development community despite its growing popularity. We also believe that Linux users will enjoy the game play style of Legends of Aethereus. Since our aim is to make a product for core gamers we fell it is very important to cater to the Linux Community since there seems to be a very similar philosophy for all of us. Nothing could make us happier than to provide a great game for the Linux Community."

ThreeGates will support both 32bit and 64bit systems, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) and higher. Everything seems to indicate the game will run great on Linux and the team is working hard to get the game out so the Linux Community can enjoy the game as well.

Legends of Aethereus is a high action RPG with up to four player co-op and a variety of PvP game types. Join forces in online multiplayer cooperative expeditions as the Inventor, Astrographer or Officer and venture into the uncharted wilderness of Aethereus seeking fame, glory and untold riches.
