Linux version?
Since I voted for this game during greenlight process, I bought it, and so far, I am liking it. I am however curious if the game will be available for Linux as well. It seems to use OpenGL, not DirectX, so it shouldn't be that big of a problem.

There is already a Linux version, it's just not on sale through Steam yet. You can buy it through the Humble Store on our webpage (wakingmars.com) or you can wait for Steam Linux to launch :)

David, I love this game but would prefer to play it through Steam Linux beta. Have any plans on this? Especially since next week Steam Linux goes open beta. It currently has 37 games and you can add your game too? (Maybe?) If this is possible will you do so? Many thanks. :D

I think we're clear to submit the Linux version but our Linux programmer has been busy with other stuff. I hope we get it into the store for next week!

Hello!

Any chance of an update on what's happening with the Steam linux version?
Yulike Jan 14, 2013 @ 3:56am 
Update would be nice, :)

There is now a Linux beta but it's closed and requires a password. Hope Waking Mars for Linux goes into open beta soon! :)
