SpeedRunners is a rather popular Early Access multiplayer running game that pits 4 players against each other. There's been a lot of people asking for a Linux version, and they have begun to deliver.
QuoteIt has been a long wait but it's finally here! We'll be running an open beta for Mac and Linux the coming month or so.
If you are interested in participating you can activate the 'platform' beta.
Go to SpeedRunners in your Steam library > Right click SpeedRunners > Properties > 'BETAS' tab > Select 'Platform' there > 'LOCAL FILES' tab > Verify integrity of game cache...
If you have problems with the Mac or Linux build, post below here mentioning which OS you're using and a log file is always helpful.
The log file on Mac can be found at ~/Library/Application Support/SpeedRunners/SpeedRunnersLog.txt
The log file on Linux can be found at ~/.local/share/SpeedRunners/SpeedRunnersLog.txt
See their forum post on it here.
