Halcyon 6 in the Humble Store says the following:

Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is provided via Steam key for Windows and Mac.

However, Halcyon 6 in the Steam store claims it supports linux.

If I buy a key through the Humble Store and activate it on Steam, will I be able to play it on Linux?

I assume there is just one kind of key, and as long as the Steam version supports Linux I should be fine, but the discrepancy makes me unsure.

    In Steam, when you purchase a game, you can use that game on any OS that the game works on. Steam's database records that your account has obtained access to a particular title, it does not restrict which operating system you use that title on (beyond the restriction of a title simply not being available for a given operating system). If you have access to a Mac computer, a Windows computer and a Linux computer, you may have the game installed on all three simultaneously. In short: this is a failing on Humble Bundle's part - they have not kept their information up to date. – Pharap Jul 29 '17 at 21:07


As long as you get the steam key and the steam store page states that it supports steam for Linux, you should be fine.

  • Just gave it a try and it works! That's what I suspected, but wanted to make sure. – rcorre Jul 29 '17 at 16:46
