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.

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.
