    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

    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?

    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.
