Brutal Legend for Mac and Linux appears in Steam database

Double Fine's heavy metal action-adventure-strategy game Brutal Legend may be spreading its wings to Mac and Linux, according to an update to the title spotted on Steam's database.

An update for the game scraped by Steam DB hints at broader OS support for Brutal Legend, which made its way to Windows PC in February. Double Fine has released Mac and Linux versions of past games, like Psychonauts and The Cave. It also addressed fan requests for Mac and Linux ports of Brutal Legend earlier this year.

"Hopefully there will be!" the developer wrote on its official Twitter account. "If it does well enough on Windows we'll be able to fund more PC platforms like Mac and Linux."

Double Fine's Chris Remo wrote on NeoGAF that the studio has "an eye towards ever-growing platform support."

"We can't promise anything," Remo wrote, "but I think you can look at our releases over the last couple years and see a consistent (if time-consuming) trend towards supporting as many personal computer platforms across our games as we can. It all costs time and money (otherwise all of our games would be on every platform by now!) but we're slowly trying to work towards a goal of heavily supporting open platforms."

We've reached out to Double Fine Productions to see what its plans for Brutal Legend are and will update with any new information.

Thanks for the tip, John.
