So clearly not a definite Linux release. But support is something well being considered. Since this is a Unity 3D, why not?
Well according to developer Let it roll, the singleplayer campaign is not really long. So could be more appealing to take on other players in multiplayer.
Since the physics in the game look quite epic. From someone who does snowboard, that is a selling point. So Share that Tux Love on the Steam Discussion.
