I hope so, but it might depend on the unreal engine

its for osx i remember so its not such a huge leap to get it to linux so id be surprised if they didnt. but theres wine anyway which is good enough until they do. but given its only a dev team of 3 people

Probably not because of the Unreal Engine. Which is sad because I really wanted to give my money to these guys!

But I'll consider it if it runs well on WINE.

Hmm...I hate Wine...now we have a lot of native Linux games on Steam.
shmoogin Jun 27, 2013 @ 1:00pm 
Wine is just such a pain, native versions are so much better. I hate when developers don't develop for linux if it works on wine.

Unreal Engine 3 supports Linux. Painkiller HD uses it and was ported not too long ago.

wine is good... if you know how to use it properly

Wine might be good, but it encourages devs to ignore native linux

ahem need i say valve on this? lol ive never seen so much linux games recently mainly because unreal engine supporting linux i suppose but given microcock alienating every dev with windows 8 i doubt theyll stick to windows much longer linux is faaaaaar more open for devs opengl beats directx so much. also fun fact most graphics card drivers lacked basic functionality until valve pointed them out

Yeah, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with steam I'm just saying most (non-indie) devs will argue there's no point in putting resources toward linux when it works on wine, which bothers me.

valve is far from indie probably the most profitable company in video gaming and i wasnt even taking into concideration indie games mac osx is essentially linux if it is deved for osx itll be easier to dev for linux because directx isnt on osx so that means it must be opengl which works on linux

I'm saying nothing about steam I don't even know what you're arguing about. I'm saying most big devs only will develop for windows and use wine as an argument against native linux clients.

they dnt ive seen a fair amount come out for osx and linux now unless im completely talking out of my ♥♥♥ and thinking wrongly but i doubt i am

obviously many devs are making versions now but most don't and use wine as an excuse, and there's no denying that linux ports are a minority.

Hey guys!

Sadly the free version of Unreal Engine 3 that we are using does not support Linux, as far as i know the only ones to release on Linux that use UE3 are people that have paid for full source code access.

If there is ever any good news about this we will absolutely let everyone know, but if we cant make it happen then i am sorry guys!

Thank you for the kind words and support either way!
