apparently it showed up in the Steam database.  damn, first Vikings gets a ninja release, now this.  if true it will be interesting to see if it is a decent port or a quick cash in attempt (looking at you Vikings) and what price it will be.

hell, if it is a decent port I may just reward them by buying the bundle that is also mentioned even though I already own Psychonauts.

There's something odd going on in the Steam database. Halo 3 was also added along with a whole bunch of stuff that is unlikely to be on Steam any time soon. There's a big thread about it on GAF.

It looks like this was true: http://store.steampowered.com/app/225260/  Brutal currently available to preorder on Steam for 25% off ($14.99 regular, $18.74 soundtrack edition).

Interesting to note that Double Fine apparently got the rights back and are self-publishing this.  I had to buy a copy just to support them.   icon_biggrin

Oh, and more info about the multiplayer beta on Steam: http://www.doublefine.com/news/comments/bruetal_legend_now_rocking_your_face_on_pc/, including this:

Currently Brütal PC is in beta, which means we have more improvements planned before the full launch. Here’s a rundown.

The current version has the following:
•   Much higher quality anti-aliasing (FXAA and SSAA). Users will be able to select these through the UI in a soon to come update.
•   Support for resolutions > 720p (whatever your monitor/GPU will support).
•   SSAO (screen-space ambient occlusion) which makes for better contact shadows and more solid looking objects.
•   Major improvements to latency/lag in multiplayer, especially in large games or games where some players have very bad pings.

Updates over the next week or so will add:
•   Uncapped (i.e. as fast as your GPU can handle) framerate.
•   Support for high-fidelity (i.e. 60Hz) simulation in single player.
•   Higher quality shadows.
•   Increased draw distance (which users can tune to be larger or smaller if need be).

damn it, I was hoping for it to be added to the bundle.  no solid release date either according to the Escapist:

The PC version of the game will offer improved visuals over the console releases with higher resolutions, better anti-aliasing and screen-space ambient occlusion. "Major improvements" to lag issues in multiplayer, especially in large games, and further PC-specific improvements are planned. Double Fine hasn't settled on a release date just yet but promised to announce something soon. In the meantime, you can get ready to rock out with your mouse and keyboard out at Steam.

still, PC improvements is a  thumbsup

now see Creative Assembly, this is how you release a PC port biggrin  next up, Red Dead Redemption for the PC slywink
