Some fun news this morning, Blade Symphony a fantastic looking sword fighting action game currently on Early Access on Steam has plans to port over to Linux.
This shouldn't be too surprising since the game is based on the Source engine from Valve.
Prove that you are the world's greatest swordsman in Blade Symphony: a slash-em-up featuring a highly detailed and in-depth sword fighting system. Face down other players in skill-based tactical swordplay, in 2vs2 team duels, or participate in sandbox FFA game modes. Blade Symphony sits on the foundation of Valve's Source Engine with Steam Workshop support.
The developers did confirm they are planning it, but it won't be until after they exit Early Access:
QuoteWith SteamOS and Steam Boxes coming out in full next year then having a Linux version is something that we are interested in doing. It won't be until after we are out of Early Access and released version 1.0 that any work will be done on it.
Source - Feel free to give your Linux +1's in that topic to show the developer there is interest.
The game already looks quite polished and beautiful and it will be great to have a decent sword fighting game on Linux.
