This slipped by me, not to be confused with the VR titles, Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter [Steam] is now supported in Croteam's updated Fusion engine and it features Vulkan and Linux support.

Check out some gameplay I recorded of it running on Fusion with Vulkan:

Youtube murdered the quality of that video it seems.

Like with the First Encounter, you need to buy the Windows version of Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter linked above, which then enables the game on Linux with the Fusion engine. If you already have Fusion thanks to the first game, buying it will give you a 2.1GB update for Fusion which enables The Second Encounter.

I get that it's confusing, but you need to buy each game to enable it in Fusion. Since Fusion itself it just a game engine, so you need to own the base game to play it. Certain games only support Linux through Fusion too, like this.

Also, it's on sale at 90% off right now. A fantastic deal for some crazy FPS action from a company that supports Linux nicely.

Note: I did encounter a major issue with it. The Second Encounter campaign refused to load, until I loaded a survival map, quit back to the menu and then tried again. If you have problems, try that too. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I Have the same problem. With OGL I don't have this bug
Guys, could you please make a thread [on Steam](http://steamcommunity.com/app/564310/discussions/) explaining your issue. Our dev team is very active there and you should get help as soon as possible.

Cheers!

Whilst I appreciate that some Linux gamers like their games DRM-free, I am just happy that a dev such as Croteam thinks Linux is worth the effort. The games are also on sale at a stupidly cheap price on Steam too :-)

Yeah at this moment, i very like their efforts. But stay stuck in Steam system is unpleasant for me.
Unfortunately, i won't buy this if it doesn't come with DRM-Free build, it's principle, whatever the cost.
But, right now, on GOG we only have the originals versions, not even the HD versions as i see, so my question is not useless.
