Kinda lame you can't download the installer script separately. If I click Linux on the download page on my Chromebook, it takes me back to the main download page for the app, and download now says "no downloads found for your OS".

Edit: Entering "" seems to work. The installer is a GUI, so you can't invoke it via the CLI without a display..

Definitely pushing out a SteamOS package for this by end of week for SteamOS-Tools. Shouldn't be much different than how I got Brutal Dook into a package. Just some presets in files.

ProfessorKaos64How does Overload compare to Descent Underground?
I have Descent Underground from, I think Kickstarter a while back. Is this the same trleam? How do they compare?
Only played the Overload playable teaser so far but everything feels right, know what I mean? Classic Descent was what, way back in '95 or something. It's possible that I could have the ol' rose-tinted glasses on when reminiscing... ;)
Teamwise, take a look:

Didn't try Descent Underground, but from what I read online the reception was rather underwhelming.
Is Descent Underground even still going? Was removed from Steam ages ago.

Overload is fantastic, made by some original Descent developers.
I don't think so, but I installed the Steam game and still have it. Didn't play it yet though.

Looks like SteamOS 3.0 is on the way codenamed Clockwerk
