Thanks for the Linux port Team17!
I just wanted to show my appreciation for the port to Linux; after my previous query thread became flooded with complaints I felt it worthwhile to send some goodwill your way.

That Worms is finally on Linux is itself worth celebrating! I can't wait to couch-game this with some buddies.

Thanks Team17!

+1 on that!

Theres a place (and a time) for complaining, and a place to congratulate. Lots on topics on the former already, let here be a place for the latter.

Have fond memories of playing the original worms, hotseating with 3 more friends, for hours, like 20 years ago.

Great nostalgia to see one of my beloved teenager games arrive on Linux! So kudos to the dev team!

Good morning Danly and MestreLion,

Works fine on openSUSE 12.3 64 Bit and on Ubuntu 12.04 64 Bit.

Works great on my gentoo system here! Thank you very much for that port. I have played the game in the last century. It was always fun, and now, it comes back, on our linux systems.

Great work Team17, i hope other developers will follow!

Runs fine on Gentoo but the cloud sync doesn't seem to have worked.

Slackware64 14.0 - works!

Side-note: Slackware, Gentoo, OpenSUSE... I'm really impressed by the diversity of distros here that are able to run not Worms, but... Steam! Considering Steam officially supports only Ubuntu, and given the close partnership between Valve and Canonical, I assumed Steam for Linux was like Unity, an Ubuntu-only thing.

So I'm really amazed (and glad) of this multitude of distros that can run Steam just fine. And they're not even Debian-based! Nice!

(Full-disclosure: yup, I'm an Ubuntu 12.04 x64 user. Call me n00b if you want :P)

Thank you for the port, really hope it won't be the last one! Can't wait to see how a fresh Worms game compares to the hedgehogs.

Hello Team 17 and everyone else.

I had played all the Worms games prior to this one. When Worms Reloaded came out, I bought it here at Steam. Two years ago I changed my OS to Debian Linux. Unfortunately, there was not a Linux port at the time, so I had to give up on playing it, as running it on a VM or with WINE consumed just to many resources. But happily, I came to know by humble bundle 7 that a port was just launched. So I came back to Steam, and had this nice surprise! I hope you will continue with this for all the upcoming (and older) versions of Worms!

I hope to meet you all on multiplayer. BTW, it works in Debian 7.2. Nevertheless I experience some troubles with the mouse pointer as it does not always responds correctly.

Regards!

Why are Linux users treated like this? The lack of cross-platform multiplayer is completely unacceptable.
This reminds me of Euro Truck Simulator 2 that has been officially released for Linux lacking the ability to listen to radio stations.

At the very least, why not mark the games as beta versions if they don't support all the intended features? In Worms, you can't even invite a friend to play with you as you know most of your friends have Windows. This is more of a joke than a "release".
