It's the thing that the developer have to port the game to that OS and only hope that
poeple will play it...

Yeah, I just bought game on HiB and that next-next-next installer really scared me :D

Steam version would be nice.

The installer scared you? That kind of installer is just to bypass the GNU/Linux packaging issue. Different GNU/Linux distributions use different package formats. It's nuts! The installers allow you to install the software on any GNU/Linux distribution, regardless of what package manager you use.

I too want to see the Linux version available on Steam.

Ok, ok, that was a joke. I expected zip (or tarball) needed to be extracted and all "installing" will be done like that. Having something so windows-like, I couldn't miss the chance ;-)

But this installer, in fact, does more. It added record to pacman (not exactly most well-known package manager in linux world) with complete filelist and everything one would expect, so game can be uinstalled normally. Pretty impressive.

I read the first bit of the installer script too. It has some sort of exeption for FreeBSD. Meaning the game might install on BSD, or at least FreeBSD. I don't feel like installin BSD to test this theory (Most BSD varients don't even come with a desktop, and PC-BSD (which does) won't install on my computer for some reason), but it shows that Two Tribes is trying to make this work on several systems.

Actually, as I learned recently, Nixstaller is not directly created by Two Tribes, so it may support more platforms that game itself.

@TwoTribesGames has announced on Twitter that they're discussing a Steam Linux port: https://twitter.com/TwoTribesGames/status/353077681245519872

This game is awesome, since they just release Toki Tori I think it´s very possible, it would be very nice! +1 for Linux!

Better installers are nice. but personally I hope games start coming "pre-packaged"
with all their dependances, for long term compatibilitys sake.
