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

We need to let Valve know that we need this game on Linux! They may have forgotten about it, simply for the fact that I think one or two of their employees made it in their own free time or something. Could be wrong. Anyways, we need to let them know that we need this, and then we also need the Lambda Wars mod, too.
