It seems Beamdog may be doing a revamp of another title, or possibly even an original title. They have sent word that they need game testers, including Linux gamers.

From their announcement:
QuoteWe’re currently looking for adventurers, warriors, rogues, wizards, druids, clerics, rangers, monks and shamans who are interested in helping us test our next game. We need testers on desktop (Windows, Mac, Linux) and tablet (iOS and Android) to help us make sure that this is our best release yet.


They aren't ready to announce what it is yet, but it's exciting since Linux has obviously been thought of early on which hopefully means good support.

The form to sign up is here, but if selected you will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Thanks for the tip Michael! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I hope they'll make it 64-bit and will avoid the notorious big XFS partition / no LFS bug.

Soooo... The Beamdog announcement is Icewind Dale 2 Enhanced Edition? The only classic from the series they are missing so far.

Could also be Planescape: Torment...
Could be great to have Icewind Dale 2 as it's the only one I haven't played at all!

Dude, who cares.

The same could be said of all Linux issues.

I was hoping for PST too, but the line

makes me think otherwise.

Beamdog has excellent Linux ports, always well tested.

Well, the notorious large partition bug wasn't caught, and wasn't fixed either.
