I have been really looking forward to playing Legend of Grimrock 2 soon. Unfortunately, the game is not available for Linux yet, and as it seems it's not certain whether we will see it on Linux at all. I have emailed the developers asking about Linux availability, and this is the response I got:

Hey Kamil,

Unfortunately we can't promise a linux port at this moment.


It's up to you to deduce how likely we are to see a Linux version in the future, but it certainly won't be soon.

Maybe, if there's a strong support under this article, I can send a link back to them and it might convince them a bit more that the demand is here. Or maybe you have better ideas. Anyway, this is really bad news for dungeon crawling fans. :( Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Same here: "No Tux, no bux".

I have played and bought the first one when it was released on Linux. It reminds me of "The Eye of the Beholder" series of old. Great game!

Valve is strangely silent lately about the development and futur of SteamOS... Anybody has hints about what's to come?

Valve is sure taking their Time. ;-)

This is not the type of game I like to play. For the sake of supporting linux though, I am willing to gift it to others who will enjoy it. Long live LINUX!!!

I hope so, but the actual flow of SteamOS updates is stopped...

Since the beggining of the project, when they release an update to Alchemist, they immediately start a new round on Alchemist-beta. Right now, it is stopped to Update 145 on Alchemist.

What does that mean? SteamOS is almost complete? What about the online video service that Valve promised (Netflix and the likes)?

And now developers that drops Linux support... It makes me wonder...

Sad news, I admit I did jump the gun and assumed this would make a Linux release so I pre-ordered the game. I really hope they'll come around and release it at some point.

Nevertheless, I won't make the same mistake again.

Unfortunately I can promise you just lost a fan.

The sad part is, unfortunately: They are for sure not worried about us not buying their game.

Well, at least for classic adventure lovers (like me), there is maybe the best news in this month. Ron Gilbert (creator of Maniac Mansion and co-creator of Monkey Island) has just announced a campaign on Kickstarter. Thimbleweed Park will be available on Linux! And I have absolutely no doubt that this will get funded! ^_^

Well, at least we hit 800 games ( http://store.steampowered.com/search/?os=linux&category1=998 ) - now Steam for Linux has more games than the PS3!
