    A nice surprise: System Shock 2 for Linux on Steam!

    It's downloading as I type. Hopefully, it won't be like Witcher 2 and there will be an executable.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    Yes, it runs, under CrossOver (like Limbo), and it comes up 640x480. Find the cam_ext.cfg file and uncomment the "force_windowed" line, and it'll come up (gasp) windowed. You can then change the resolution without your whole desktop being low-res.

    The publisher claims the source code for the game has been lost (and thus a native port wasn't feasible) so the only option left was to use Wine.

    When was it made available? Hmm - April 1st - to me it seemd to be an april fools joke plus it isn't suprising that the devs use wine though I wouldn't personally use it myself nor steam since accounts cannot be erased and among other reasons.
