Killing Floor for Linux

When Steam for Linux will be released, Killing Floor will be ported to Linux too?

Nobody knows. I wish I could be more helpful, but that's it.

It is something we are interested in and will be looking into it. But we also need to see demand. #gamesforpenguins

Well, if there is time for this, it will be now. They will only release L4D2 on Linux Steam so releasing Killing Floor now will make a lot of buzz since there won't be a flood of games. Waiting too long and there will be bunch of other games and KF will be lost among them. It's a tough decision to make which can waste your resources or make you rich.

Agreed, I think this is a tough call. I play games on OSX and already feel like I'm in the niche market. I feel like the demand for Linux gaming is even smaller.

Look at the stats: http://www.humblebundle.com/

The Linux users pay more for games than every other users.

There are a lot of users (including me) that use Windows because of Steam games

I demand it!

Seriously, I was actually hoping that some of the older UE2 games might see a late port in the wake of this announcement , especially KF.

Would have bought it already if I wasn't stuck with the Teletubby version here in Germany. A Linux version might actually make me go the extra length to get an international copy.

Too bad that's highly unlikely to happen for RO2, thanks Epic!

They didn't said that, if it was released now it would only be L4D2 + some indie games. This is what they are doing at the moment:

Currently, our focus is on the following projects:

-getting the Steam client onto Linux with full functionality
-optimizing a version of L4D2 running at a high frame rate with OpenGL
-porting additional Valve titles

Release KF for Linux and create the demand, lead, don't follow.

P.S. Bring back the "old" Pat moves and ditch the ex-mod op novelty weapons for Linux too while you are at it, the new stuff is awful. Take the game back to it's previous status of greatness as opposed to the state of mediocrity we have now.

Peace, Out.

...

I've mostly stopped buying and playing games through steam, in wait for a linux client. I own Killing Floor, and would play it if ported (As in, I've already given you my money and would purchase further products if you brought it to linux). Demand met by me and so many others in the same boat that can not be bothered with Wine gaming.
