Hm, I don't see Linux shown as supported: http://store.steampowered.com/app/214340

You call me a liar? :P See the attached screenshot. ;)


Btw, I apologize to Steam haters for posting the heresy. :P

I guess they didn't update their game card then. No matter, I'm not going to buy it there anyway. And I have all three games on GOG ;) But good to know that Linux versions are coming.

I have them here too. I hope they will come to GOG eventually. :)
Speaking about adventure games.. I'd also like to see Broken Sword 1 & 2 Linux versions @GOG. They're sitting in my backlog but I'm hoping Linux versions arrive before I actually get around to playing them. :)

+1 :)
I've been thinking... What is the best way to let GOG know we're interested in some of the mentioned Linux ports? Maybe support requests? This topic certainly might be visited by community managers or a forum administration, but I don't know what influence they really got on business decisions. :)

So, if we bother GOG with the official support request for a game X (for example: Deponia series) or Y (for example: Blackwell series), will that speed up things a bit? Or not? What do you think? What are your experiences?

Bluetext posts have repeatedly said that GOG measures things by support requests and not forum posts, typically. I'd send in support requests for things you want to see.
I think they're trying to get all the native Linux versions they can for the current catalog. There's no point holding them back really.

Wine/Dosbox/ScummVM games might be different, probably depends how much time it takes to make a package and test it, versus how much sale potential that title has.
Yeah, GOG are working on the backlog games that have Linux versions, but they have other things to do as well, so just be patient.
