Monaco is coming to Linux on Monday, October 21, breaking down another barrier to entry for crafty players. Monaco is already out on Xbox 360, PC and Mac, and it even has a European boxed collector's edition because it's a high roller. The Linux edition will have "a ton of free/new content," according to the announcement.

Monaco on Linux is especially exciting given Valve's recent announcements: SteamOS, a Linux-powered operating system, and Steam Machines, in-home streaming and gaming boxes running on SteamOS. Every new system needs at least one great game, and now Steam Machines have Monaco. We certainly think Monaco falls into the "great" category.

All technical speculation aside, the Monaco Linux announcement comes with a picture of a chibi Redhead in a penguin suit, which is adorable.
