Linux version?
Just opened my profile in Android App and saw there download button on "Alien Swarm" and some source-mods. Other windows games don't have this button.
I've downloaded ASwarm on Linux (pressed this magic button on android) and so I have game in library, but there's no "PLAY" button. What's the trick?

It's probably a bug related to the fact that alien swarm is free. It's a windows-only game, unfortunately. You could use wine to run it on linux, but it's not quite the same as a native game like TF2.
Spiral Knights is listed in CDR as linux-avaible, but you can't install it under linux (from client, console or mobile app). Maybe it's because Counter-Strike: Source native avaible?

Yep, I know about wine and everything else. Just talking about bug.

1+ for Linux/Steam OS.

ASwarm is free... but it's for Windwos.

I hope ASwarm will be released to Linux/Steam OS soon.

+1. The complete code base is available for free (according to the steam page), so I guess the community could create a linux port.

+1 for a GNU/Linux port. Doing so would also allow Lamba Wars to be available on GNU/Linux too. A 2 in 1 special. :-D
