    Phoronix: Thanks Valve, Another Game Comes To Linux

    A new game is coming to Linux via Valve's Steam client as the result of Steam Greenlight and interest in the Linux platform...

    It feels like every other day there's a new game coming to Steam on Linux. It sounds like Valve are building up quite a library for the official release date.

      I hope that Duke Nukem Forever is ported to Linux. It is a crappy game, I know, but I am nostalgic...

        Reminds me a bit of Planetary Annihilation.

          Is it a crappy game? I had a blast with the whole experience.

            I hope it will be available DRM free without Steam as well?

              I find it similar with black and white.
              Great graphics though!

                Valve has made the difference for Linux support. It's a good thing afterall that Microsoft had pissed Gabe off.

                The next thing Linux needs for gaining more support is more component standarization and more backwards compatibility.

                  That's not really related to steam, if a game dev does not opt for drm/required online you can usually start the game from the installation dir without opening steam.

                    Precisely.

                    Steam for the most part really is just the distributor in that sense. It's up to the dev to make use of any of the DRM present. You can very easily ship a DRM-free game through Steam. Gotta love Valve.

                      I'm pretty sure shmerl was asking if it will also be available using other distribution services, not whether the Steam version will have the DRM enabled.

                        Looks like Heroes of Might and Magic to me and that definitely isn't a bad thing.

                          Linux gaming challenges:
                          * Indie games - thanks to HumbleBundle and Steam Linux something is changing - The Cave Linux debut at the same time with MAC and Windows!
                          * Old "AAA games" - nothing (on Steam), but some of them will be on Linux (old Valve games like Half-Life 2)
                          * New "AAA games" (like GTA5 - no games and it is the most important question if there will be new AAA titles for Linux/Steam console. If not - console could fail on market
                          Valve have to talk in the backstage with big companies to prepare some new AAA games for Steam console debut...

                            while the game does appear to be yet another middle earth fantasy game, it does seem to have a much more interesting premise than most.
