QuoteWhat other platforms is Transistor coming to?
After our initial launch on PlayStation 4 and PC, we will subsequently release native Linux and Mac versions of the game.

They did confirm to a twitter follower of ours who let us know they did tweet again to confirm Linux:

@km3k We don't have an eta for Linux but fully intend to support it (as well as Mac).

So, we just have to wait a bit longer which is sadly something we here all too often.

Not a surprise to see Transistor coming to Linux since Bastion is already there. Shame it won't be day one though.

Quoting: GoCorinthiansThanks again Valve. Hoping Transistor would come to steamOS...

Why would you thank Valve for that? If anyone is to thank here, it's Humble for getting their first game on Linux, or just the devs for choosing to support the platform...
