Life is Strange entry on SteamDB shows intent for a Linux debut


According to a recent post on Reddit, it looks like Life is Strange #storybased choice #game is headed to Linux. A title that has certainly earned an Overwhelmingly Positive rating on Steam, with well over 40,000 reviews #available and a solid 96% positive standing.

The SteamDB entry shows some definite promise:

launch/2/config/oslist: linux
launch/2/type: none
launch/3/config/oslist: macos
launch/3/executable: Life Is
launch/3/type: none

Life Is Strange is a five part episodic game that sets out to revolutionise story based choice and consequence games by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present and future.

You are Max, a photography senior who saves her old friend Chloe by discovering she can rewind time. The pair soon find themselves exposed to the darker side of Arcadia Bay as they uncover the disturbing truth behind the sudden disappearance of a fellow student.

Meanwhile, Max begins to have premonitions as she struggles to understand the implications of her power. She must quickly learn that changing the past can sometimes lead to a devastating future.


  • A beautifully written modern adventure game.
  • Rewind time to change the course of events.
  • Multiple endings depending on the choices you make.
  • Striking, hand-painted visuals.
  • Distinct, licensed indie soundtrack.

Life Is Strange has certainly made an impact on the community, but the Linux demand has also been there for a while. Even with less than 1% market share, it’s a pleasure to see DONTNOD Entertainment and Square Enix honing in on community requests, finally.
