Syder Arcade available for Linux, along with new content

BOLOGNA – December 21, 2013 – Two months after Syder Arcade arrival on Steam, developer Studio Evil and publisher Meridian4 released today the first update for the game. The new content is free, Steam exclusive for a limited time, and already available for download.

During the Steam Christmas Sales, Syder Arcade is available for $4.99, 50% off the original price.

Studio Evil is proud to announce that the Linux version of Syder Arcade is finally available on Steam, and can now be purchased along with the classic PC and Mac versions.

A new playable ship, The Overseer, joined the three already available: fast and deadly in combat, heavily relies on wraiths for damage and survivability and unleashes a powerful shockwave that destroys enemy bullets.

Two new challenge levels are now playable. The Lighthouse, where the gamer is called to defend the last bastion of Miza against a brutal pirate assault. The Ice Canyon, a race against time on the frozen moon of Ymir.

New Steam achievements have been added, together with a powerup born from a special collaboration. If you also own Unepic on Steam, some of the in-game pods will be transformed into cute, pixelated Baby Dragons from UnEpic. A similar surprise happens playing UnEpic with both games in the Steam library.

The complete list of changes for this update 1.6 are available here:
