I had never heard of 'Valley' before until it was emailed in by Colin (thanks!), and wow it looks marvellous. It's also heading to Linux!

Only a few days ago the developer said this:
QuoteWe have a mac and linux build of the game but its facing a few issues. We'll look into platform expansion after the game's launch is over.

The Linux content also appears to be in progress, as it has been added to Steam when looking at SteamDB. This could mean they are closing in on it already. The usual applies though, it could still be ways off.

I have to admit, I am pretty damn excited to try this out as it looks quite incredible.

About the game
Valley is a First-Person adventure unlike any other. Hidden deep within a remote region of the Rocky Mountains, you find yourself bewildered within a secluded valley. With the power of a recently discovered L.E.A.F. suit (Leap Effortlessly though Air Functionality), run and jump your way through beautiful forests, dangerous ruins and vast environments; all the while utilizing the power to control life and death to uncover the startling secrets of the mysterious valley.

Be forewarned, with these new-found abilities comes a daunting repercussion: the more you experience death within the valley, the more the valley will die around you. Article taken from

So many good games.. So little time and money to get them all..

The Linux gaming status has changed so dramatically in the last few years, that my wallet has been increasingly feeling it even though I abandoned console gaming altogether half a year ago!

That said, I'll give this game a try once it arrives!

Apparently it’s a 5 hours walking simulator with platforming. Found a review that says:
Quote(…) the story's good. It's not remarkable, but it's solid. And it is told all through environmental notes scattered around and audio logs
I mention that because I don’t like that trend much, it’s been overused in a few recent games (Alien Isolation, Bioshock Infinite, Talos) and is a sad replacement for a properly told story IMO.

I’ll probably get it anyway, when discounted.

I was hoping for this one to play on Linux. The athmosphere is just what I need ( :
