Folks have been asking about our early Linux efforts and support for Valve's SteamOS and Steam Machines. We have good news for you! The 4.1 source code has initial support for running and packaging games for Linux and SteamOS. We love Linux!

And another major game engine adds Linux and SteamOS support (CryEngine did so as well).

Where's the Linux love?


I'm not trolling. I agree, but in reality, who really cares? If you're serious about being a game developer you'd at least have a copy of Windows (either in a VM) or own a Mac etc. I think the effort/cost the world editor developers would spend on making it run on Linux, is better spent on making a better editor!

Steam is porting or has already ported their development tooling to Linux and they are developing more Linux specific tools.

What if you're not serious about being a game developer, but rather just want to make levels for your favorite FPS? Unless you're still a fan of the Quake 3 engine, your options are pretty limited.

That kind of hobby development is right up the ally of a lot of Linux users.
