Please don't bring that feminist bullshit here. Ofcourse there is more male characters. Dota is game of war not virtual family game

I want to play magicka on linux. It is my favorite game and I never have any success to start in on linux with any available framework (playonlinux, lutris). I also don't have success with proton on steam. Is anyone have success ?
I now that magicka is not supported title. I just really want to play it on linux

kalinYou are not serious right ? While there is less then 1% linux gamers self respecting publisher never will put money and effort to do anything for linux. Especially when the community is full with outraged retards and haters that constantly make death threats, I still remember witcher 2. The issue with linux gaming is not the porting but the support. It doesn't make sense. For that reason just be thankful to Valve for supporting us even when it doesn't make sense, even when people preferred gog for some reason.
For small studios who cannot reuse the effort on a larger scale, it might not make sense financially, but Valve is big enough that even 1% of their users make them a lot of money. Their work isn't restricted to a few games in a limited set of genres, but to a lot of games in all genres, so even if the cost is high, it will pay for itself if enough Linux users buy more games from steam as a result of it.

Will it pay for itself? Time will tell. I can only speak for myself, but I am sure I will buy more windows games if this works well. I also suspect some developers might will consider supporting Linux officially through steam play as well.

Totally wrong. With that effort they can make a lot more money while servicing the real market.
The only reason they doing it is that they don't want to put all their eggs in single basket. They hope that their effort will help linux to grow. It is important to note that if linux grow big valve and any game publisher/studio will not start to make more money because the number of gamers will be approximately the same.
Again be thankful to valve, they spend money on us because they believe in us. Believe in Valve

mirooh well, I am really not that happy as most people.

from now on I'm really afraid that too many publishers will use this as an excuse not to provide native linux builds in case it runs "well enough" with proton/wine.

since this is now to be built-in, most people will not have to understand what wine even is, they will take the running binary for granted. hence what is to expect is less performance and continuous direct x instead of opengl or vulkan

this would totally be acceptable for older/legacy titles, but I really think too many will jump on that train that it runs with proton and that there is no need to compile it for linux.
we'll see.

Facepunch are no longer selling the Linux version of the survival game Rust (updated)

nox
kalinDid that mean that i loose the ability to play that game(I already bought it)
Did they stop to support linux version for existing customers
In witch of previous cases I can ask for refund ?

We don't know yet. The only thing we know is that they removed their steamos icon, but the linux version is still there and playable.

The likely result is that they'll provide a linux client, but they will not offer support. Again, we don't know yet though and we'll have to wait for further clarification.

Not very playable for me. I experience crash before loading any server. Don't know what is the reason.
