    I don't know what they mean by "wrapper." I wish Valve would just offer something like a native version of old WON for Linux, if they are so against fully supporting Steam on Linux.

          That trailer told me nothing about the game... I bet its some kind of generic fps with a spooky plot :P

            It's something like Trauma.

              Dear Esther "just" tells a story. There are no puzzles to solve, there is no inventory and nothing/nobody to shoot.
              You cannot jump nor run. Interaction with the environment is practically non-existing and limited to more or less
              obvious trigger points which drives the story.

              Having said that, *I* loved it - not only for its beautiful artwork.

              Dear Esther ist different.

                Why do I get the feeling people are confusing the Source Engine with the Steam platform itself?

                  Because we discuss Half-Life 2 mod here.

                    But it's not a mod anymore, is it? I thought the original game (which was a mod) was remade into a standalone one.

                      I was assuming that players would be forced to activate and launch the Source Engine game through Steam, just like every other Source game I know of.
