Serious Sam 3: BFE runs screaming to Linux via Steam
While it's true the first Steam game to run on Linux will be Left 4 Dead 2, Devolver Digital's fast-paced shooter may be a close second. Serious Sam 3: BFE is currently in development for Linux and should launch sometime this year – the Linux version will launch with all content "up to date" with the PC and Mac versions.

The Linux version of Serious Sam 3: BFE will feature full Steamworks integration, including achievements and "the whole shebang," developer Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker says. Look for it to debut on Steam sometime this year.

Because Penguins Like to Blow Shit Up Too, Serious Sam 3: BFE Linux Version Announced

- Linux Version Coming This Year to Steam, Will Support Steamworks -

THE INTERNET – Croteam and Devolver Digital announced today that the popular 2011 PC indie shooter hit Serious Sam 3: BFE is under development for a 2012 release for Linux. The Linux version will feature all content up to date for the PC and Mac versions of Serious Sam 3: BFE.

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."

Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom. Serving as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3: BFE takes place during the Earth's final struggle against Mental's invading legions of beasts and mercenaries. Set against the collapsing temples of an ancient civilization and the crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt, Serious Sam 3: BFE is an exhilarating fusion of classic twitch shooters and modern gameplay features.

Parker continued, "The last time I had anything 'Open Sourced' I was in Thailand, if you catch my drift."
