Thanks to a tip we have found out that the recently released Republique Remastered could see a Linux version.
It’s a Unity5 game, but it appears they use some middleware that doesn’t yet support Linux. Remember folks that magic button to publish on Linux only matters if all the plugins and extra stuff supports Linux too. Hopefully in time more middleware will care about Linux, but it’s games that push it, so we need more developers to push for it.
Here’s a quote from the Steam forum post asking for a Linux version:
QuoteWe would love to support SteamOS / linux! However, there is currently no ETA, but we are working with our middleware vendor to support the platform.
Going by SteamDB it certainly seems like they are working on it:

Remember, do not buy it until a Linux version is released. You have been warned.
