Linux users will be able to enjoy Full Throttle Remastered this year, but not until after the Windows version has released.

Thanks to our twitter follower for linking us to this forum topic from DoubleFine where it's confirmed:
QuoteFor the question of platforms, we have a contract deadline we have to hit for early-ish next year, so we are focusing our effort on PS4, Vita and Windows for launch. After the initial launch we will be fixing bugs and addressing the feedback from the community (like we did for DOTT) while also working on the OSX, Linux and iOS versions. Trust me, we would love to release everything on day-one, but we are a pretty small team and don't want to compromise the quality of the game by spreading ourselves too thin.

Full Throttle was originally released in 1995, so like the Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle Remastered editions Full Throttle will also see a massive revamp. It will update pretty much everything, so graphics, sound and so on.

Yes, yes, yes.

I'm having one of those days to forget.
At least some good news.
This is what I call gold over blue velvet

This is awesome! Hope they do justice to the original. It was a bit short but had tons of character.

Maybe if the remaster does fine they might even reconsider the canceled sequel. ;)

It sounds like another porting job for Cheese ;)

I'll definitely be buying this when it's out for Linux to play through with the wife. I know I played at least some of it on PC, though I'm not even certain if I had the full game or just the demo.

I love this game!! It was one of the most fun I've ever played! I'll definitely buy it!

Pure rock'n'roll!

Yes yes yes, I've played the original on ScummVM but it always crashes at the bridge part so it will be nice to be able to complete it one day :)

Good news, but I think that I'd rather play this on my phone. No news re: an Android version though, wonder if that's an oversight in the comment...

Great game and a great introduction sequence Ripburger!

I remember finishing this in one sitting at my friend's house ... way back in antediluvian times.
Nephilim roamed the world in those days ... men of renown, who ran giant computer stores where we could get 4MB for $100.
