Thanks to a tip we have found out that the recently released Republique Remastered could see a Linux version.

It’s a Unity5 game, but it appears they use some middleware that doesn’t yet support Linux. Remember folks that magic button to publish on Linux only matters if all the plugins and extra stuff supports Linux too. Hopefully in time more middleware will care about Linux, but it’s games that push it, so we need more developers to push for it.

Here’s a quote from the Steam forum post asking for a Linux version:
QuoteWe would love to support SteamOS / linux! However, there is currently no ETA, but we are working with our middleware vendor to support the platform.


Going by SteamDB it certainly seems like they are working on it:

About the game (Official)
You receive a call from Hope, a woman trapped inside a mysterious totalitarian state. Hacking into an elaborate surveillance network, you guide Hope through a web of danger and deception across five thrilling episodes.

Developed over five years by industry veterans (Metal Gear Solid 4, Halo 4, F.E.A.R., Black & White 2, SOCOM) and fully realized in Unity 5, Republique Remastered is a thrilling and topical stealth-action game that explores the perils of government surveillance in the Internet Age.

Remember, do not buy it until a Linux version is released. You have been warned.

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

They did a kickstarter for this but if I remember right it was for the ipad, that did not bring them much funding at all so they added windows/mac which saved their kickstarter from failure. I hope it will come to Linux but seeing is believing.

Liam, is it just me or is not so that these days any developer who has not said they will do a Linux version will tell you "we would love to do a linux version" and then continue with "no eta <insert any reason>".

Anyways some Linux for sure:

Looks interesting, with visuals having Bioshock feel to them. And it's available on GOG now too. I'll wishlist it until the Linux version will come out.

Quoting: Shaddoe-JI backed this on kickstarter before I completely dropped Windows. Hopefully they do port it.

Quoting: Vladimir-KataevSo it's stealth, maybe linux. Out of curiosity, what compatibility is there with WINE.

Last time I tried it in WINE was mid/late last year. I couldn't get past the main screen since nothing on it would work. Not sure how it is now.

At simple seek works in wine 1.7.37
