Painkiller Hell & Damnation is a fast-paced, thrilling modern remake of an all-action shooter Classic!

I asked on their Steam Community here and got this response:
QuoteHi, this is Leszek from TF51, the guy behind the Linux port.

I'm not allowed to say much, but I'm a Linux user myself and I guarantee you this is not vaporware. :)

And also:
QuoteLeszek is doing a great job. However porting an Unreal Engine 3 game to Linux is not an easy task and therefore we are still just in the middle of porting so. But we are already running QA runs.

Check this out:

Here's the image, showing the game running on Ubuntu:

Key features

  • 100 % UNCUT version in all languages
  • A modern remake of the Classic shooters, Painkiller and Battle Out Of Hell
  • 15 adrenaline filled levels, including 4 Boss levels
  • Includes a special Halloween level
  • Over 30 of the nastiest, darkest creatures from Hell
  • Devastating and unique arsenal of weapons
  • Singleplayer and Co-operative Campaigns spread across 4 Chapters
  • PvP and PvE Multiplayer modes
  • The soundtrack is forged in the same furnace as the weapons: heavy metal
  • Powered by Unreal Engine 3®
  • Steamworks fully integrated

Key Anti-Features (you know… the ones that make life EASY):
  • NO Kill-streak bonuses or airstrikes
  • NO auto-heal
  • NO AK-47, NO M16 or that sort of sh*t; just a healthy dose of .666 calibre weapons!

I am most excited about the single player as the multiplayer looks like just another fast paced arena game which have more than enough of. Single player looks great though, I especially like that fact that you can do Co-op like Serious Sam and Left 4 Dead 2. Article taken from

Ha, at last! This was announced for April and I was starting to worry that I would never be released. Good to know that it's on it's way, I'm getting it ASAP.

Guys remember not to buy until it comes to Linux.
Firstly it makes it obvious you are buying for Linux, secondly there is a chance it might not happen.
Like air buccaneers.

I made the mistake of buying it before it was released... :/
As soon as I saw the news it was coming to Linux a couple of months back, I bought it immediately thinking it was right around the corner. Wish there was a way I could let Steam know which platform my purchase counts for, like in the Humble Bundles. Thanks for the reminder Strider, I've got to be more careful in the future.
