Some good news! SWORDY has been given the green light to come to Linux & SteamOS by Microsoft, as the developer was a bit confused due to the Xbox One exclusive deal they have.

From their Steam forum:
QuoteGood news everyone. Microsoft has given us the go ahead.

Sorry for any annoyance or confusion our statements might have caused, it was really just us being overly cautious - not wanting to get in trouble haha.

We'll be getting things up and running for Linux and OSX during Early Access.

We'll be doing a shout out for testers on those platforms - if you are interested in helping send us an email - [email protected]

Thanks!

Somehow I just take this as Microsoft porting to covertly try to collect data about Steam Console users.

It's not the first Microsoft game to come to Linux. Dust: An Elysian Tail is also a Microsoft title. It was a very strange feeling to boot up a native Linux game and see the Microsoft logo.

Quoting: edoSo MS doesnt consider SteamOS as a console? I cant blame them, I still down know what that is lol
Well Sony were able to claim the PS3 as a PC for tax reasons by including (for a limited time) the other OS feature. I which case Steam Machines have an even stronger case for the same claim.

Quoting: ArkonaFor a non native speaker, can somebody explain what „swordy“ actually means? It's a selfi with a sword in your hands?

Sounds risky ;D

Let the irony flow, I would laugh when Halo Online starts to run on wine.
