The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing series looks like it will be heading to Linux. The news comes thanks to a lucky post on their Steam forum about the second game.

When asking about the second being ported a developer said this:
QuoteIt is in our plans! However, it will be Van Helsing I that will be released for Linux at first. Then comes the second game!

Nice!

So, what is it?

Put on your wide-brimmed hat, grab your weapons and embark on an incredible adventure in the gothic-noir world of Borgovia, where mad science threatens the fragile peace between monster and mortal. Be Van Helsing, monster-hunter extraordinaire and save the day with your charming and beautiful companion, Lady Katarina (who happens to be a ghost, by the way). Explore the savage wilderness in the mountains and the soot-stained brick districts of a grim metropolis twisted by weird science, and don’t forget: you might never know who the real monsters are!

Main Features
-Enter a memorable gothic-noir universe filled with monsters, magic and weird science.
-Play through a refreshingly unique story, spiced up with wry humor and snappy dialogue.
-Fight fierce battles against supernatural foes with diverse skills and abilities.
-Use the special abilities and tailor the skills of your remarkable follower.
-Customize your character through a detailed level-up system where you decide which skills and abilities you’ll need for the hunt.
-Modify your skills on the spot with a unique power-up system.
-Learn the secrets of mystical alchemy and forge powerful items.
-Build and develop your hideout and place traps to defend it from waves of terrible monsters.
-Become the greatest monster slayer of all time while playing a cooperative multiplayer monster hunt up to four players.

Both games look like they are a lot of fun, and the first one has some good reviews on it as well. Who doesn't want a good-looking action RPG on Linux?

Check out the first one here and the second one here.

Posted a month ago and God knows how long it will take. Probably be a year until we get a port.
