    Default Thanks Valve, Another Game Comes To Linux

    Phoronix: Thanks Valve, Another Game Comes To Linux

    A new game is coming to Linux via Valve's Steam client as the result of Steam Greenlight and interest in the Linux platform...

    It feels like every other day there's a new game coming to Steam on Linux. It sounds like Valve are building up quite a library for the official release date.

    I hope that Duke Nukem Forever is ported to Linux. It is a crappy game, I know, but I am nostalgic...

    Is it a crappy game? I had a blast with the whole experience.

    I hope it will be available DRM free without Steam as well?

    I find it similar with black and white.
    Great graphics though!

    Valve has made the difference for Linux support. It's a good thing afterall that Microsoft had pissed Gabe off.

    The next thing Linux needs for gaining more support is more component standarization and more backwards compatibility.

    That's not really related to steam, if a game dev does not opt for drm/required online you can usually start the game from the installation dir without opening steam.

    Precisely.

    Steam for the most part really is just the distributor in that sense. It's up to the dev to make use of any of the DRM present. You can very easily ship a DRM-free game through Steam. Gotta love Valve.
