official confirmation that a native Linux client was being developed for Valve's popular Steam digital games platform, and we still don't have a release date for it, but now we know that there will be at least one other game to play, in addition to Valve's own Left 4 Dead 2.
Croteam and Devolver Digital have announced that their recent shooter Serious Sam 3: BFE (AusGamers 7.8/10) is coming to Linux and that it will include Steamworks integration and achievement support "because penguins like to blow shit up too".
Fork Parker, chief financial officer at Devolver Digital said, “We’re in the process of integrating Steamworks and achievements and the whole shebang, but we can’t get the little fucker of a penguin to stand still.”A screenshot featuring Linux mascot Tux the penguin can be seen here, running natively on a Ubuntu desktop.
The Steam Linux client still has no official date attached, but Devolver's plans to launch Serious Sam "in 2012" suggest that it should be here before the year's end -- give or take a year or two to account for the Valve Time principle.
