LIMBO caused quite a stir when it was released for Linux being wrapped in a custom wine wrapper by Codeweavers, but that saga looks like it's coming to and end.

On SteamDB it has new info:

launch/2/config/oslist: linux
launch/2/description: Launch
launch/2/executable: limbo

That's not all though, Icculus also posted to a now deleted post on reddit we have the image below:

Good news for full native fans, but the custom wine version actually worked fine for me.

Ryan Icculus GordonWe started on this way before 2014. This has actually been on the backburner for quite some time; Limbo is one of my favorite games ever, and I really wanted to get a non-Wine version of the game running.
I'm very happy with how the game is running at this point; I'm just waiting for final approval from Playdead to flip it to the public branch and replace the Wine version on

I hope this mean that they will upload it to steam.

OK, so it was listed prematurely. It'll be updated eventually. I also saw Eador: Masters Of The Broken World in m y Steam library today, and it downloaded the Windows version (?!). Another "missing executable" error. Oh, well. I only have 198 other Steam games I can play in rhe meantime.

BTW, my Witcher 2 installation plays very well, and I've gotten past the Prologue..

It worked great on Mac.
That’s not what a Mac-user friend of mine told me. He said those wrappers have terrible performance.

I don’t see the point of having Ryan Gordon port Limbo again when the original version works fine, and some of Ryan’s works lately are of poor quality or unfinished (whatever the reason). But I suppose they do have a reason :). Still it would be best if the original developers did it themselves…

Does icculus have any spare time left? He's porting all over the place right now...
