It's not often that we get to talk about games coming out early, even a few hours worth, but Kickstarter success story Strike Suit Zero is all about breaking our carefully constructed boundaries. Originally slated to hit on January 24, Strike Suit Zero comes to Steam, Green Man Gaming and GamersGate today, January 23, for a standard price of $20 (£14.99). It's 20 percent off on Steam, for $16, today through January 30.
Developer Born Ready Games is working on Mac and Linux versions of Strike Suit Zero and it will support the Oculus Rift VR headset, all due out later this year. Born Ready raised $174,804 on Kickstarter back in November, almost doubling its goal of $100,000. The people have spoken, and they want epic, futuristic, end-of-the-world space wars. And now they can have it.
Space. Combat. Reborn

Hotly-anticipated Kickstarter-funded release set to revitalise the space combat genre- With Mac and Linux Versions Confirmed
23rd January, London: Development studio Born Ready Games is thrilled to announce that Strike Suit Zero will be available to pick up today after 6pm GMT on Steam, Green Man Gaming and GamersGate - for £14.99. Additionally, the developer has now officially confirmed that there will be Mac and Linux versions of the game later this year.
Following an amazing response to the Kickstarter campaign in 2012, $174,804 has been pledged by eager gamers awaiting the arrival of this beautifully styled space shooter.
Strike Suit Zero promises to delight fans, due largely to the fantastic talent on board its development team. Featuring jaw-droppingly detailed mecha and spaceship designs by renowned mecha designer Junji Okubo (Steel Battalion, Appleseed), and a wonderfully atmospheric score created by Paul Ruskay (Homeworld) and Kokia (Tales of Innocence), critics have already been hugely impressed with the aesthetics and gameplay on offer in Strike Suit Zero.
In addition to the Mac and Linux versions, Born Ready has previously confirmed that there will be Oculus Rift support planned for later in the year.
James Brooksby, CEO at Born Ready Games said "We are incredibly excited that the launch day for Strike Suit Zero has finally arrived. We've received overwhelming support from our community, and would like to extend special thanks to our backers on Kickstarter. . We hope everyone is as ecstatic to see the finished result as we are!"
