We asked the developers about Desktop Dungeons
getting a Linux port quite a while ago (wow July 2013
!), and today they deliver in style. Desktop Dungeons is a a quick-play roguelike puzzle game, that sounds pretty confusing, but it looks awesome.
I am glad to see it finally come to Linux as it was an instant buy for me as soon as the news came in. It seems it has a few teething issues currently it reports a "missing executable", however
if you go to the installed folder and run "DesktopDungeons.sh" then it will work! So, you don't need to wait.

Like goats, Linux comes in many flavors. Also like goats, sometimes Linux can be recalcitrant and kill you in one hit… If you have any problems with the game, let us know and we’ll fix it ASAP. And finally, if anyone’s got a Steam box, we’d love to know how it plays!
Check it out on Steam
