For those that missed it, Cities in Motion and Cities in Motion 2 were both released for Linux this week via Steam.

Just last week we wrote that Cities in Motion would be coming to Linux and it -- along with Cities in Motion 2 -- are already out. Cities in Motion is a business simulation game published by Paradox Interactive and developed by Colossal Order. Cities in Motion is about simulating public transportation systems for the cities of Amsterm, Berlin, Helsinki, and Vienna.

In terms of how the game is running on Linux, Phoronix reader "Jannis" wrote, "I just played Cities in Motion 2 in linux via steam. The native linux port is here and works like a charm (I'm using a Radeon HD 6670 with the open-source driver)."

Phoronix reader jasonditz wrote, "both seem to be working great now... my first time getting to seriously play CiM 2 even though I had it on steam for awhile (my old Mac couldn't really handle it properly). I'm noticing not all the DLC for CiM 1 has been autoinstalled yet, but hopefully that'll come pretty soon. I was to get back to making bus lines in San Francisco."

Those wanting to learn more about these new native Linux games check out Cities in Motion and Cities in Motion 2 on Steam. Each game will set you back $9.99 USD.
