Reversi is a video game adaption of an old board game I used to play with my dad, so not only is that awesome, the developers also posted up a bit of a Linux postmortem.

The developers took to reddit to detail some of their experience on Linux, so you should go read that.

It's always nice to see what developers have to say about Linux, and it seems they had a few issues right before launch.

About the game (Official)
The classic abstract strategy game comes to Steam!

Reversi is an ageless game that is simple to learn and hard to master. Place tiles surrounding your opponents tiles to flip them to your color. Get to the end with more tiles of your color and you are the winner!

Buy it once, play it on PC, Mac, & Linux.

This is the most full-featured version of Reversi ever created.

- Play locally or online.
- Play against the computer – World class "Zebra" AI with five difficulty levels.
- Includes "hot-seat"/"pass-n-play" mode for multiplayer using only one computer.
- Asynchronous play - you can play even when your opponent is offline.
- Easily switch between full 3D with camera-control & a 2D graphics mode
- Full controller and “Steam Big Picture” support
- Switch seamlessly between playing with mouse/keyboard and gamepad.
- Elo Ratings for online games – ranked on a Steam Leaderboard
- Steam Trading Cards, Badges, Backgrounds & Emoticons
- Dozens of Steam Stats & Achievements.
- Steam version has no added DRM and can run everything except the online play & Steam-specific bonuses (Steam Achievements, Steam Leaderboards, etc.), without any internet connection and/or without Steam installed.

Interesting read!
(And please nobody flame at him for using "PC" for Windows. He's taking efforts for Linux gaming!)

PS: The copy of his article at the gamedev reddit has some more interesting info of the devs in the comments:

It's the same studio that made Hive, and it works great ... but it look terrible. Those horrible Nuvola icons, they are everywhere, I can't stand it. Only buy if you're blind, or if you like those Nuvola icons.
