This follows on from Duke Nukem also being in Beta, seems like Devolver Digital is quite a Linux friendly publisher .

This was announced via their steam forum post:
QuoteTo try it out you need to opt to "Public Beta". Feedback is highly appreciated.

~One bug: music is not playing, but it will be fixed soon.

About the Game
The definitive version of the cult classic shooter, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux features remastered visuals and two massive expansion packs. Corporations rule every facet of life in a near-future Japan and employ Shadow Warriors, one-man armies of unparalleled skill, to protect their power and forcefully remove all opposition.

The Zilla Corporation is the most powerful of these conglomerates and will stop at nothing to achieve domination unseen by any other corporation in the world. Lo Wang, Zilla Corporation’s legendary Shadow Warrior, discovers this corruption and the dark powers being summoned to aid his employers in this quest for absolute power. As a man of honor, Lo Wang vows to battle these demonic forces with an arsenal of explosive weapons, his silent blade, and a razor sharp wit.

Key Features
  • Includes Shadow Warrior Classic Redux (OpenGL), two expansion packs - Wanton Destruction and Twin Dragon (OpenGL), and the original Shadow Warrior (DOSBox).
  • Remastered visuals, a remixed main theme, and compatibility with modern gaming PCs.
  • Challenging Steam achievements for only the most skilled warriors.

Devlover are doing good things for us, and I hope it continues

To be honest, I never really played this, but I will definitely be buying to show support!

Edit: Also, happy belated Birthday

I played the shareware version some time ago, it´s like an "oriental version" of Duke Nukem 3D.

Sadly it doesn't yet work without minor hacks on nvidia, see this post. I hope they fix that it's a bit annoying.
