Like me, if you've been eagerly waiting The Signal From Tölva [Steam, Official Site] for Linux, you may be in luck sometime soon as it looks like a Linux version is now in progress.


In their news post back in May, right at the bottom they stated:
QuoteThe Mac build: better news! It's almost ready. Looking at Linux to follow...

That's a small something, by itself not massively interesting. It was then mentioned again in another news post from the 18th:
QuoteAnd yes, we'll look at Linux after that! :D

However, let me direct you to this tweet from yesterday which reads:
QuoteGood news: initial #SteamOS build of #Tolva works! Bad news: only at 0.3 FPS. Vague hope: could be duff video drivers.

I've offered my hand at testing, but I do suggest not spamming the developer with offers since they haven't specifically requested any yet. Just sharing as usual for those who wanted an update on the game, but it is exciting news!

About the game
QuoteThe Signal From Tölva is a journey into a wild, weird science fiction landscape, filled with danger and beauty: you must survive terrible hazards, navigate through impossible spaces, and fight an ongoing battle to control this haunted, blighted world. Explore, ponder strange texts, and find tranquillity between the battles. You will make use of a range of powerful tools to overcome your enemies and uncover secrets: hack robots to battle alongside you, equip powerful weapons, and detonate savage defence systems.

Fight, explore, and solve the mystery of The Signal From Tölva!

The Signal From Tölva is a first-person game of exploration and combat, set in a beautiful, hand-crafted, hand-painted sci-fi world.


Would you pick up a copy when it releases for Linux?

In my experience, when something runs far slower than expected, it's pretty easy to knock off a few defects and get a significant speed up. The difficulty comes in fine tuning the performance. I'm confident that Big Robot can get us comfortably into playable frame rates quickly - getting it on par or faster than the Windows build is the tricky part.
