Dear Esther Linux Port Available for Download

Dear Esther Linux Build

A native Linux port of adventure game Dear Esther – sold as part of the recent Humble Indie Bundle 8 – is now available for download.

It had previously been a re-purposed Windows build running on WINE, the Windows compatibility layer.

The native Linux build is available to download direct from the Humble website for those who bought the recent bundle as a standalone .bin file.

But don’t expect too much, too soon. The Humble folks are describing the release as an ‘initial’ version, urging gamers to ‘stay tuned for updates’.

The Humble Indie Bundle 8 sold nearly 500,000 copies in 14 days and making over $2.5 million.
