The Leadwerks Game Engine has officially launched on Steam for Linux.

Leadwerks had been in beta on Steam for Linux but as of today the official release has taken place. This milestone comes several months after Leadwerks launched in the Ubuntu Store. The Linux port of the game engine came after a successful Kickstarter campaign last year.

The Leadwerks announcement reads, "Bringing Leadwerks Game Engine for Linux to Steam means that existing games can be more easily deployed to Linux. The Leadwerks Game Player allows users to play games published through the Steam Workshop. In most cases, games developed for Windows can be played on Linux with no changes and no recompiling, due to Leadwerks’ platform-agnostic design. Linux support also opens the door for Leadwerks developers to publish games to the living room. Last year Valve Software announced the SteamOS, a Linux-based operating system for game consoles. Although SteamOS is still in development, Leadwerks for Linux and SteamOS promise to provide indie game developers with a way to deploy their games to the living room quickly and easily."
