    Sorry, I should have been clearer. If that is a screenshot, then I take it that it is not a screenshot of an area where actual game play will occur. It may be the background for a cut screen or a loading screen or something like that. For some reason, I took you to be thinking that it was a screenshot of an area where actual game play will occur.

    If it is an area where actual game play will occur, then I am truly amazed. It appears to be a painting/drawing with extreme detail and no sign of pixelization.

    They call it an environment screenshot and detail how they made it. In fact it looks like a painting because it really is painted on top of the game engine! Similar to the old infinity engine games. I guess the tradeoff is that it's more of an isometric game than true 3D, but it looks beautiful.

    Interesting. Thanks for linking to that. It does look beautiful.

    Either way, I didn't mean to sound in any way negative -- I'm thrilled this game will have Linux support!

    No worries! I know very well how hard it is to convey meaning over text.

    We've got a while to wait, but I think this will be the most complete game that targets Linux from the get go.
