Pressure for them to do a proper linux version?.....
I never understood the need for a linux version. How many players are there actually that want to use only linux?
AFAIK, there is no proper linux only publisher since loki went down, and that shows how important linux for gaming is. I just get the feeling that the linux only crowd louder than their worth as a target group.
That was years ago and Loki had a relatively small number of titles IIRC. iD software does release things for Linux fairly regularly, but I think that's just because John has this fixation on seeing how many platforms they can release games on.
I was sad about Loki going under because they made solid products.
Other than that, the problem is that there's a catch 22. Gamers don't use Linux as their primary OS typically because there aren't very many games and developers don't make very many games because the audience is small.
But, whenever something like this gets released on Linux it makes it that much easier to settle the question reliably.
Also, Loki went under what like 7 years ago? Linux has been growing in population during that time, but more importantly the GPUs available for full use on Linux have become much more common. Which was always a serious problem. No point in porting games if the GPUs suck balls or aren't supported.
