LIMBO can finally be played natively on Linux thanks to Ryan "Icculus" Gordon and his porting magic.

If you don't remember, LIMBO came in a Humble Indie Bundle and caused a wee bit of a stir when people noticed it wasn't native. Glad we can put that behind us now!

Kudos to Ryan for porting and Playdead for allowing him to do so! As this is an SDL2 port it should work beautifully, and brings controller support too.

You can pick it up at Humble Store if you don't own it already or fancy gifting a copy to say thanks.

Quoting: PKMplThey already announced a new version, we should come back to this once it's ready.
Did they? I look at the github and Steam forums everyday and the only thing they were able to say about this was "no ETA." I even asked if a "true fullscreen version" was possible as a VP employee mentioned that it could improve performances but I never got an answer...
Uh... read before you quote. It says exactly what I said: no ETA.

It's a misunderstanding, by "announced" I just meant to say that they confirmed it's coming, sorry :P

I posted on google plus the other day and stand by this. The linux native version runs better on my machine using debing testing then the windows build does on windows 7 or 8. I can actually play it now.
