Back in October Ryan Gordon surprised the Linux community by releasing a Linux game demo of Prey two-years after the game began shipping on Windows. He was contracted to port the Prey server to Linux but this was the first time we were seeing any client. A month later an updated Prey demo for Linux was released. This afternoon Ryan has now released the binaries that allow the retail game to be used on Linux.

The binary needs to be installed followed by copying over the game's data files from either the game's CD or DVDs or Steam client. The announcement can be read here with download links and additional details here.
