SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis Classics now officially supports Linux with a big update & price drop
13 June 2018 at 5:26 pm UTC Likes: 2

noxI'm talking about a game that forgot to add a SteamOS logo to their game, while supporting linux officially and properly.

EDIT: Let me clarify. There is no steamos icon, but the game still works perfectly on linux (if you already had it before the linux support was added you might need to reinstall it to make it work).

Personally I dislike it when they don't have a proper linux logo for their games, but at least they mention the fact that they support linux in the patch notes, so I'm satisfied.

Thanks for the clarification. It's really stupid that they don't add the proper icons. If I didn't come across this article, or didn't bother posting on it to get clarification I would've never known that it actually supports Linux. How do they expect to make sales on Linux with this situation?

sarmadSo, did this turn out to be false? Do we have any word on whether this is actually coming for Linux?
I see the article saying "is now officially available on Linux" but I have no idea what it's talking about. The game is definitely not available on Linux. If the author is indeed seeing it available for Linux then it means it's region locked. I live in Canada.
It's most definitely available on linux:

So, it sounds like it's region locked then.

Mind explaining what you are talking about?

I don't own the game so I haven't tried actually installing it, but they don't show the SteamOS icon on its store page. This is confusing, does it have some sort of unadvertised Linux support? If it does support Linux, why isn't the store showing that?

Fifa or PES. Those definitely has a big market, and are definitely an area Linux lacks.

Nice to see performance so close to the original version. It looks like focusing solely on Vulkan is paying off well.

slaapliedjeI think this was the downfall of the Steam Machine.

Steam Machines weren't ready. Far from it. I'd say to have a decent console, three things should come together. Vulkan, Wayland and OpenXR. Once that works in combined stack, there can be successful high end Linux consoles.

Vulkan is already here and well supported. Wayland is less important than you might think, and it's certainly less important for consoles than it is for desktops and laptops. OpenXR? How many PS4 gamers do you know who use VR? It's a new market and will continue to be a minority market for the foreseeable future.

Anyone knows how powerful is this R7 GPU? I wish they revealed more details.
