Issue Report: Serious Sam 3 BFE update suspended
I got Steam updated this morning, then i found SS3 "update suspended", and there is a purchase button instead of download. What happened?

Same for me. Developers thinks that this game is pretty stable to begin to sale it. Beta test time gone.

what a pity!

They could give it to us as a gift to say thanks for testing their game tbh :(

Sigh, some warning would be nice. Was having some graphics problems (geforce 650 ti) and getting no audio (wasn't using video card for audio) with ubuntu 12.10. Not sure it's worth paying $10 just to file the bug report. At least TF2 works well.

Until 10th of december it cost $5 instead 20.

Ah well, as long as you reported the problem in the month people had access to the game, everything will be good.

And somebody bought this game when it appeared in linux store.

Good game. Worth buying. Who's going to? I am!

I bought it before I was on the Beta so still have it now. Most fun game I've played in quite a while, definitely worth buying.

I bought as soon as I read here the first report saying the game was playable for non-beta users. It was the game I was more excited to see running on Linux.

Has anyone purchased the game AFTER it wasn't included in the Beta? I am a bit concerned by not seeing a Linux logo on the purchase page except for the bottom of the page where you can see the system requirements.

Will I be able to play this on Linux if I purchase it now?

Will I get the same uncut version or a low violence version as usual in Germany?

Any experiences anyone?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, you will be able to play it on Linux as it was before =)

Thanks a lot!

Well, how many other games (that are otherwise not free, unlike TF2) were available for free for Linux testing? A few demos, but no full games at all. I thought so. We decided to step forward and gave this for free so as many people as possible can test it. The original caveat was "until the end of the closed beta".

But the size of the beta is now getting so large that it is hard to consider this a closed beta. The number of people is nearing the order of magnitude of current owners of the game. The result is that we are getting a lot of bug reports, where a significant number of them are not helpful. The beta was intended for Ubuntu 12.04. Now we have reports from people running exotic home-made distros with custom kernels and some window managers no one ever heard of. We definitely support the ability to do so, but you should _first_ complain to the maintainer of that exotic artifact, not to us, if you find problems there.

In short, the traffic here is getting too busy. We don't have infinite resources to handle it all, so we have to back down a bit.

From another POV, you can consider it as a beta test for commercial viability of this Linux build. If no one will buy it, then... hm.... will we maintain it? :)

AlenL, thank you! If SS3 wasn't in the beta, I would never ever get this game, not even try to play. But now I'm going to buy Delux set :) I really like it and I want to know who is final boss!
