don't worry guys, these popular games will 100% get linux support.

for the sake of the future, telltale will get on the train and valve's gabe is the conductor.

Will probably buy anyway; will buy a lot sooner with Linux support. Having to reboot to play games is a major hassle.

You may use PlayOnLinux to get most of the AAA Games running well with Steam(Wine). I play games like Dishonored, Metro 2033, Company of Heros, Guild Wars II with playonlinux with my Nvidia 660.

Back to Topic: I would like to buy a native Linux version, too.

With the Steam OS on it's way, I feel like that will give Telltale enough incentive to start devloping for Linux; but only time will tell...

I agree, it really does need native linux support.

As a question to the devs: how hard would this be? I understand that Windows -> Linux is really hard. But Mac and Linux are quite similar (I would think? Mac is based on Linux) so maybe this isn't even asking too much? Anyone here ever port a game?

Mac is based on Unix; Linux isn't. What makes Mac and Linux easier to handle is OpenGL, because that's what both operating systems use. Linux imitates Unix and is thus Unix-LIKE, but is not Unix itself. If Linux were Unix-based, then Mac and Linux would be binary-compatible. Essentially where all the trouble comes in is the Window manager where Mac uses something else and Linux currently uses X Window System: you'd need GLX and any underlying X11 libraries for that.
