Shadow Warrior Looks Like It Will Come To Linux

By - | Views: 14,944
Cue heavy breathing, Shadow Warrior, the fantastic and brutal looking FPS from Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital has some very promising signs it's going to come to Linux.

The game has "Overwhelmingly Positive" reviews on Steam from 5,804 people. With very few bad reviews, and that's quite amazing.

There is now a "Shadow Warrior Mac and Linux Testing" package on SteamDB, so it looks promising, but of course it's never confirmed until a developer shouts it out.

We shot off a cheeky tweet to the Devolver guys, and will update you if we get anything back.

This could quite easily be one of the secret games from Feral Interactive or Aspyr Media.

About the game
Shadow Warrior is a bold re-imagining of the classic 3D Realms’ shooter from independent developer Flying Wild Hog (Hard Reset) starring the legendary and quick-witted warrior Lo Wang. Combine the brute force of overwhelming firepower with the elegant precision of a katana to annihilate the merciless armies of the shadow realm in an exhilarating and visually stunning transformation of the classic first-person shooter.

Are you excited? I am! Pretty glad I have my new 970 to whack the details up on this bad boy.

Really great and atmospheric action game! I hadn't played the old original when I bought it last summer and it was probably my most unexpected positive surprise of 2014 ;-)

My favorite genre. First Person Hack and Slash [with guns that I probably won't bother to use most of the time]. I always thought I was eventually going to have to give up on this one and run it in Wine, but I've been holding out just a little bit of hope. Just enough to keep myself from actually running it via Wine.

So excite.

I couldn't resist and finished it some months ago in windows. It's a very very entertaining game.

Ok, now I'm suddenly interested in this game :)))

Excellent. I shall wishlist it until such a time as a purchase as a Linux gamer is warranted.

This game looks cool. If it comes to Linux I will buy it. :)

I was pretty much interested in this, glad it comes to the land of fragging penguins!

Seeing as they already sell DRM free copies of this on both and Humble Store for Windows, I can see myself having fun with this one assuming things pan out properly. :)

Great! I played GOG release of this game in Wine (it works perfectly) and it's one of the best games in its genre. It's an FPS / hack-n-slash, but it also has an interesting story which borders on real drama with some witty humor in addition. Highly recommended. (In my first playthrough I practically exclusively used katana except for some flying enemies).

It's also interesting to note that part of the team which developed this game also worked for CD Projekt Red and Witcher games before. For example music is composed by Krzysztof Wierzynkiewicz, Michal Cielecki and Adam Skorupa (and music in the game is great). Same goes for some programmers.
