Metro Sees The Linux Light

Worra lorra Linux games

I suddenly find myself paying that much more attention to which games are seeing Linux conversions, as a sudden rush would imply big things for Valve's SteamOS project. Could Metro: Last Light's belated Penguin edition be a herald of Things To Come?

Might as read exciting things about my love life into these tea leaves, really. All it means for certain is that, well, Metro Last Light can now be played on Linux, via Steam. So that's nice. If you own any one Steam version of the game, that means you can now play it on Windows, Mac or Linux, so people with triple-boot Hackintoshes will be extremely pleased about this.

The Linux section of Steam is looking pretty healthy these days, it must be said. Alright, big flabby mainstream games from big flabby mainstream publishers are in relatively short supply, but recent fare like Foot-to-ball Commander 2014, Democracy 3, Crusader Kings 2 and A Machine For Pigs are sat there happily, like it ain't no thing.

Sooner or later I'll get around to installing Linux on a spare hard drive again, and then NO-ONE WILL BE ABLE TO STOP ME from turning all my taskbars a funny colour and experiencing mild irritation with graphics drivers.
