Papers, Please A Dystopian Document Thriller will get a Linux port!

Papers, Please is A Dystopian Document Thriller.
 
The communist state of Arstotzka has ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin. 

Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists. Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission's primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.

After getting this one mailed in from S.D. I decided to ask the developer myself just to be sure and he responded!

The game has been Greenlit already so you will see it on Steam eventually as well so it's obviously rather popular! It does certainly seem like quite an interesting title, not something I've seen before!

Laughed so much when I watched Sevadus play this on his stream. Cool game, though I think I'd prefer watching more of it instead of playing myself.

Well, we do have our own resident Linux gaming Let's Player, here in the community!  His name is Sabun, and if you haven't checked out any of his longish LP's, you ought:  http://www.youtube.com/user/PenguinRecordings

Of course there's room in this world for all different styles of LP, but he's pretty well differentiated by his upbeat, positive energy, which contrasts the usually cynical, grumpy, and humorous personalities we are typically used to.  Don't get me wrong, I avidly watch (and have respect for) TotalBiscuit, Kikoskia, and Northernlion as well, but for some reason, Sabun's earnest enthusiasm best fits a Linux gaming LP, in my opinion.

I'm sure we could convince him to LP the game when it comes out 

Though... a game like this makes it tough to stay positive!

Ehem...

By the way, LP's are usually a full playthrough (or a series of videos for endless games like Minecraft etc) rather than a brief look (even if the video is 40-50 minutes).
