Not Solved [Solved] From Demo to Full Game?

Hello, first off I love this game.

After buying the game from Steam is there anyway for me to get a hold of GNU/Linux binaries without having to buy another copy?

I know I could run it with Wine, but I'd like to avoid that if possible.

Thanks for the info.

At the moment, I don't think there is a way. If you bought it directly from Frictional, you would have gotten all three versions (Win, Mac, *nix) with the purchase.

If Steam adds Linux support, then we will add Amnesia for Linux to Steam. But until that happens, if it happens, then sorry no it's not possible.

Oh man... I guess I'll have to do what I can to help out that front to convince Valve to support GNU/Linux.

In the mean time I guess I'll just have to Wine about it.

But thanks for the response.

Why not checking first if Steam gives a Linux copy?

Why would steam give you a linux copy? It doesn't even run on Linux. Steam only runs on Windows and Mac atm.

Well, tell me something I don't know; and tell it to ManDudeGuy. He was the one who should have checked first.

You see, that's not the question he asked. He asked that since he bought it from steam, was there a way to somehow verify his order here and grab the linux version.
