Good news Croteam and Serious Sam fans, as 'Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope' [Steam, Official Site] will come to Linux as soon as it's possible to do so.

From the Steam forum post:
QuoteYes, seen that demo. We will be supporting SteamVR on Linux via Vulkan as soon as it becomes available.

Really great news, and awesome to see Croteam be so willing to throw their games at Linux. Games like this make me much more tempted to get a VR headset than all these tech demos we've seen.

About the game
Have you ever wondered what it's really like to be Serious Sam? Have you ever wanted to fight Mental's alien hordes with your own two hands? Well, now you can! Step into the shoes of the Earth Defense Force's greatest hero in this unique VR simulation based on Sam Stone's own log files from his time as captain of the Battlecruiser Saratoga. Experience the missions that turned Captain Stone into the legend that he is today. Article taken from

This is getting serious.

I'm a big, big fan of Serious Sam. One of my favourite games on Linux is Serious Sam 3 BFE. I've put over 55 hours of play into that. This looks pretty good fun. Playing Serious Sam style game play in a VR environment could blow your mind!

GuestI'm not usually one for profanity, but I think it's OK to say FUCKING AWESOME, from time to time, right?
Judge rules: it's perfectly acceptable in this usage ;)

Any news on Serious Sam 4 though for the 99.999% who don't have VR gear (and personally I never will until actual standardization gets worked out that all games and headsets will support)? I wonder if them working on SSVR means they're skipping SS4 and working on Talos 2 next, or if SS4 is still coming first but not until next year, or what.

Just to say... Serious Sam VR is more a sort of experiment than an actual game.
Yes, i tried it, and yes, it's really funny to play, but there are way better games on the Vive.

Still an impressive job, anyway. And it's the first Early Access day, so it's probably too early to judge.

I can't wait to try it out on Linux as soon as Valve makes it possible.

Croteam is amazing!

This news makes me want to drop 800$ on a HTC Vive for Linux & Serious Sam VR.

So trippy.
