About two weeks ago, we posted that Croteam was ready
to release Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter
for Linux. There are new developments, and we've now ended up in an even more interesting situation.
Alen Ladavac (@alenl), Croteam's chief technology officer (CTO), has posted an announcement
and created a sticky topic
about the game's update #291416.
Update #291416VR is now supported on Linux! Vulkan API supported and recommended for VR. This is waiting for updated SteamVR for Linux to be released. Once that is out, we will enable the Linux download for all owners. Note that this whole system is very early, and there might be problems with stability and performance.
In other words, the game is ready for action and has been semi-released for Linux, but... SteamVR for Linux is not. As I see it, Croteam is encouraging - gently pushing - Valve to release SteamVR for Linux. This is a major update of the game, also in many other areas. Croteam decided not to wait with rolling out the full update, including its Linux elements.
