    We are still in their thoughts, as was demonstrated by the first rate treatment they gave us with the Postal Desura releases (including updated Linux binaries and some new support work), so hopefully something can be done in the future.

    But as I said, they are having a rough time of it at the moment.
    "Besides Dear Esther, another Source-powered game that was on its way to Linux was Postal III, but at the moment its state is uncertain. Valve's native Steam client for Linux is also still to be released. Below is the official trailer for Dear Esther."

    It was only a joke. If it were me, I'd have stopped bringing it up long ago, hoping people might forget I'd said anything about it. I actually don't know one way or another whether or not they are working on or will release it, but he keeps on going even after all of this time. I guess in a way you have to admire his courage...or ability to get people to tell him off the record information...depending on how things turn out.

    nacl for dear esther ?

    Probably a port to Nacl would be better (and a lot faster) than an "wine wrapper" ?

    see postal hasnt even been ported and may never...

    at least nacl games get ported really fast.

    they still work on steam for linux.

    and this "wrapper" technique is only to support ALL steam games in the linux clind.

    its like a build in wine.

    Michael, if you really believe to your words about Steam and its Linux client please explain to everyone the reason and be sure to include all details! Otherwise just say "Hey folks, I need something to write about..you know how journalism is.."
