Dear Esther: A Source Engine Game On Linux
Phoronix: Dear Esther: A Source Engine Game On Linux
You may have heard a few days ago that Dear Esther, a game built upon Valve's Source Engine, would be ported to Linux and released in the coming months. Well, here's more details about that Source-based game is getting to Linux...
There's this cool Linux game that I like to play called, "Guess How Long Until Michael Gives Up On Linux Steam Port?"
Michael, if you really believe to your words about Steam and its Linux client please explain to everyone the reason and be sure to include all details! Otherwise just say "Hey folks, I need something to write about..you know how journalism is.."
they still work on steam for linux.
and this "wrapper" technique is only to support ALL steam games in the linux clind.
its like a build in wine.
How I missed one of these! This time it's for real, I just know it!!
To be fair to Michael, he made no mention of Steam here. And he has not even mentioned it at all for the past six months.
As for Postal III, well, RWS has been having a rough time of it. Both Akella and Valve have been giving them some headaches.
We are still in their thoughts, as was demonstrated by the first rate treatment they gave us with the Postal Desura releases (including updated Linux binaries and some new support work), so hopefully something can be done in the future.
But as I said, they are having a rough time of it at the moment.

nacl for dear esther ?
Probably a port to Nacl would be better (and a lot faster) than an "wine wrapper" ?
see postal hasnt even been ported and may never...
at least nacl games get ported really fast.
