Dear Esther native port now part of the HIB... When on Steam?
As the title says, Dear Esther's native port is now part of HIB8 downloads (when I bought it it was still in development by honorable Ryan Gordon). So if the native client has been made available under HIB (and I also bought it on Steam some time ago), when will it be made availabe under Steam?

Whenever the devs decide to upload the port. Unfortunately, anything ported by a third party has a lot longer process to go through, as the original devs didn't make it and may not even have enough Linux experience to know how to get it matched up with the Steam overlay (for achievements, etc). This is a problem with a LOT of games (see my games list, for example). Some companies have been awesome, while some have been complete asshats (team meat).

There isn't even a Linux port ready yet. The HiB version is a wine bottle of the Windows version.

The HiB version is a wine-wrapped Windows version. Icculus is working on the native port (unless they just released it today).

If you go to the humblebundle page and look at Dear Esther, there's a native port available now, been on there for a few days now.

Dosen't work for me at least, but apparently it's being worked on to fix that issue (segmentation fault)

If people actually read and understood the OP it would help...

I like how both versions are there, so we can compare the Wine version and the native port.

I downloaded it as soon as I noticed it had been made available. I had installed the CxO bottled version shipped in RPM (as I use Fedora 18 64-bit) and it ran very well. However, I do feel the native port to be smoother and as other Source titles I am able to run it in highest settings with AF/AA on my aging video card (GF 9800GT), well, except for Lost Coast, but that's due to HDR (i.e. No AA). Thus far I'm loving it, though I'm not as deep into the game as I was (removed all files including saved games). And I have not found crashes or other problems.
