the coma: recut now available on linux ubuntu mac windows games via steam

Since The Coma: Recut was expected to release on Linux, Ubuntu, Mac and Windows. Hence this nerve-shredding school-based survival-horror adventure from Devespresso Games. Now stalking its way into nature support via Steam. While I can’t say the same for GOG, we do have a playable Linux and Ubuntu port available.

“We have a Linux version completed, but have not been able to playtest it yet.”

While this is only partially true. The games native build is playable via Steam, yet there is no official icon. Which has been removed from GOG. Here’s an in-game screenshot below and YES the games fully playable. And no, this is not a Beta branch install.
