I succumbed to peer pressure and bought it. Mostly just to support FB and try it out on Mesa, I've yet to play the first game.

im holding myself back for 1 month. just to wait and see what happens with the steam linux client rumors.
its mostly because most of my friends are using windblows and DRM free copy of Trine 2 doesnt match with the steam versions multiplayer. So im unable to play with friends then.
and i also dont want to buy the windows version, because they support our beloved platform natively :)

If you buy it in the humble widget on their site you get a steam copy along with it, you support the Linux version AND are able to play with friends if a Linux steam client gets released!

Buy it for Linux? I can't imagine it being fun at all with a game pad...
If you can't bring yourself to buy it again (this game is worth more than $30 IMO), you could send the Frozenbyte guys some fan mail to make sure they know how much you appreciate Linux support :D

Trine 2 is first game ported to Linux by Frozenbyte (not Alternative Games ).

Exactly, that's why it's doubly important to let them know how appreciated it is (in-house porting shows a greater level of commitment and is more likely to lead to simultaneous releases).

Not trying to be a bastard but, "Citation Needed".

If it is true, I wounder what the Alternative Games people are up to?

EDIT:
QuoteWe ported Trine 2 ourselves to Linux and Mac.
