Valve brings Half-Life to Linux and Mac through Steam

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

Valve, continuing its push towards full integration with the Linux OS, today ported the original Half-Life onto the operating system through the Steam platform.

The port of of the game is powered by the "GoldSrc" engine. This is a heavily modified Quake Engine, and is, at the current juncture, considered to be in beta, according to Phoronix. 

Valve pushes Half-Life onto Linux

In addition to the Linux port, Half-Life can also be played on Mac OS X. This news comes to GameDynamo by way of Cult of Mac. The site has confirmed "it will install and run on a modern Mac," even though the Steam store listing still lists the game as Windows only.

Half-Life was originally released in 1998, and is widely considered to be one of the best first-person shooters ever made, rocketing the then-fledgling developer to the fore of the industry and beginning the slow growth into the powerhouse it has become today.
