Prison Architect Coming Soon The Developers Tease!
Posted , 5 April 2013 at 8:38 pm UTC / 3374 views
Prison Architect the controversial game where you manage a prison from the creators of Uplink and Darwinia should be coming to Linux rather shortly!

As usual I contacted the developer and got a nice response:
So could it be the 9th of this month? I hope so!
Or as this comment points out it could mean the next Alpha (number 9!).

The game works perfectly in Wine but as always a native port is far nicer so it's great to have the devs still going forward with the Linux release!

This is one of the games I'm looking forward to most, I would have already bought it on their website (btw, buy it from their website as it gives you a Steam key) if the Linux version was available.

Considering they are on Alpha 8 now, I'm guessing the 9 means the next Alpha release.

I see they are on Steam right now on "Early Access", this shows only Mac & Windows, but, when looking at there site I see a Linux Icon for the alpha...if I'll download it from steam would it work on Linux ?
