Firewatch looks awesome, for the style, the story and the gameplay. It's available day-1 for Linux and SteamOS.
Sadly, the developer has not responded to my request for a key, so I am personally unable to cover it.
I'm not sure how well tested the Linux version is either, as initially it didn't work due to case sensitivity issues with the executable (Firewatch instead of firewatch). If that isn't picked up in testing, how would anything else be?
I've also seen you might need to rename the the data folder.
How is that sort of thing not picked up if you test your game even once on Linux?
About the game
The year is 1989. You are a man named Henry who has retreated from his messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge. Your supervisor Delilah is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio—your only contact with the world you've left behind. But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the forest, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have.
A Note: Firewatch is a video game about adults having adult conversations about adult things. If you plan on playing with a younger gamer, that might be good to know going in.
