I'm seeing Contrast pop up in an Unreal Engine press release so I'd doubt a linux version will happen until Epic unveils official linux support in UE3. :(

Pretty much. However, we haven't ruled it out, either - it's something we'll look at after release.

Anything new on this by chance?

It´s great to know the possibility exists because this game looks awesome, very intelligent concept!

A number of UE3 games have been ported to Linux, so there's hope.

That's great to hear!

I think you should add your plans/hopes for additional OSs & platforms to the FAQ.

(sorry for bad English).
Yes, the game is playable with Wine, nice and smooth (no control lags, no graphical glitches, no sound shuttering/mistiming), although with somewhat lower framerate, than in native Windows on the same hardware.

My rig:
Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring) 64bit
Wine 1.6
Nvidia GTX 660 (driver ver. 331.20 from PPA).

- It would be better to configure Wine to emulate virtual desktop with game resolution, check the "Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows", also in regedit create key HKCU/Software/Wine/DirectInput/ , under "DirectInput" add string parameter "MouseWarpOverride" with value "force". All of this may prevent some screen and controls issues.
- Нou may gain some extra FPS, running game in a separate X server ("xinit -- :1" console command), switching shortcuts is Ctrl-Alt-F7 and Ctrl-Alt-F8.

That's it. Maybe this info will be useful for someone (despite i'm not very experienced in Linux). I hope, that Linux port will appear someday. I really love this game.

It is great to read this!
Dungeon Defenders, Painkiller and probably some other games were not stopped by UE3 to get here... i still believe! :)

I have just added this game to my wish list, waiting for that sexy penguin.

Added to my wishlist for now, if this gets a Linux port I will buy this. The game looks great and seems like it would be quite fun.

+1. I decided against a PS4 in favor of going with Steam Machines, which means I might miss out on this. Unless it comes to Linux, of course, which would be great. :)
