Well, this is encouraging news. Barely over a week after Valve's announcement that both Steam and Left 4 Dead 2 are headed to Ubuntu Linux, another developer has jumped onboard and promised to release its game through the Linux version of Valve's digital distribution service.
As Shacknews reports, that developer is none other than Croteam, and the game being ported is, of course, Serious Sam 3. In a strangely expletive-laden statement, publisher Devolver Digital revealed, "We're in the process of integrating Steamworks and achievements and the whole shebang, but we can't get the little [expletive] of a penguin to stand still." Croteam included the following screenshot of Serious Sam 3 running on Linux on its Facebook page, as well:
Serious Sam 3 will be hitting the Steam version of Linux later this year, according to Shacknews. For what it's worth, Croteam is also cooking up a Linux version of Serious Sam 3 that isn't tied to Steam.
