Mac and Linux
Added "A Story About My Uncle" for Linux

I tried this a good while ago on Windows and quite liked it. Looking forward to get properly stuck in now I'm pretty much Linux only :) Will submit a port report as soon as I've had a good amount of time on it.

I already beat it on Windows and own it on Steam but if they bring the Linux version to GOG I'd be happy to buy a Linux copy there. Would want to have a DRM free copy anyway.

I will throw some money at them, just to show them that Linux gamers pay for the games, even if they are released late. However it's worth to have in mind, that this game was already available in humble bundle for very cheap (it means that such a game won't create colossal income).

However I am very pleased that the game was released to Linux and I hope our library will grow even faster!

Coffee Stain have been good about supporting Linux. Sanctum 2 runs great for me.

I just finished it! Good game. I played with a Steam Controller and it worked pretty well even though the game requires very precise pointing.

In one of the last stages in the ice caves, the stalactites were a bit too hard. However, that part was reasonably short so it didn't ruin the game. Game took less than 5 hours but I haven't tried for all the achievements.

Gameplay was smooth (Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti). Graphics were nice and I liked the storytelling. Good port as far as I can tell.

Cool. Already have it in my Steam library (from when it was Windows only). Now it is on Linux, I should get around to playing it. (My Windows partition gets booted up very rarely, heh. And when it does, usually can't use the machine for 10 minutes due to updates and reboots.)

The Linux version of A Story About my Uncle included in the Humble Indie Bundle 18 is DRMFREE.. Well.. All Linux games in that bundle are DRMFREE and I just purchase it for that reason.
