I would buy it but there is no linux version.
I thought there is one at official site like it is with braid or cave story+ but linux version doesn't exist at all.

There indeed IS a linux version. I have it. It's beyond me why they don't distribute that version on Steam though. Anyone know if it's coming soon??

We are currently investigating getting the linux version to steam. It is a slightly older version (it was developed for the Humble Indie Bundle 4) and initially we might be releasing it as a beta.

that's good.

@faust.mef: Apparently the official person beat me to the answer. ;) Yeah, I got it with HB4. Great game and I wish I didn't have to switch over to Windows in order to play it...

@cliffski: Beta or not, I'd love to be able to play GSB (hopefully with all the extra content!) through Steam on Linux. It's a fun game but I find that I'm playing more and more on Linux so it would be great to have it available for that platform!

That's too bad. I enjoy the game. He's a 1 man developer though, so I don't think a Linux version is in the cards.

Wow. 1-man, huh? It's a pretty awesome game in any case but all the more impressive if one person is doing all of that work! That must take quite the diverse set of talents!

Would definately love to see the linux version

Ok everyone...if you have linux, please go to the games properties, and opt in to linux beta. the password you will need is p3nguin. That should get you the linux build, although it is only the base game, not the DLC. Please let me know what you think...

Gave that a shot, but it does not give an option to install("not available on your platform")
Olek Mar 10, 2013 @ 10:50pm 
Just installed and no problems! Plays great! Thanks!!

One minor note: occasionally there're a thin white bar that goes across the bottom of the screen. It almost seems like one of the weapon refill meters just bleeds over across the entire screen. Strange. FYI.

Other than that, no issues. Looking forward to playing more! :)
