Deadfall Adventures Is Out For Linux, AMD Users Beware

As of this morning the Deadfall Adventures action game is now out in beta form for Linux gamers on Steam.

Deadfall Adventures is a fast-pace classic adventure game with some elements of a first person shooter. Deadfall Adventures was developed by The Farm 51 and published by Nordic Games.

Deadfall Adventures had launched for Windows and the consoles earlier this year while now it's reached Linux just before the New Year. The Farm 51 was previously responsible for Painkiller: Hell & Damnation Now Out For Linux and one of its Linux developers had shared lessons in porting games to Linux.

The Linux beta release of Deadfall Adventures was mentioned this morning via this SteamCommunity.com page. "All customers of Deadfall Adventures should now have access to the Linux depot. This is not a beta version since we need especially feedback on a wide variety of hardware configurations. We are actively monitoring feedback and will provide if possible regular updates."

As has become quite common for Steam Linux games, "The game is playable, but may stutter with AMD's Catalyst (fglrx) drivers. This is due to workaround for a bug in the driver. AMD engineers are working to fix it." The game should work fine with the open-source AMD Linux Gallium3D driver, just not the Catalyst binary blob. Intel Linux gamers also might run into issues due to low video memory capacities.
