A little more about it from the developer:

SteamWorld Quest is the roleplaying card game you’ve been waiting for! Lead a party of aspiring heroes through a beautifully hand-drawn world and intense battles using only your wits and a handful of cards. Take on whatever threat comes your way by crafting your own deck choosing from over 100 unique punch-cards!

What awaits you is a luscious treasure chest filled with gold, dragons, vivid worlds, magic, knights in shining armor as well as XP, turn-based battles and all that good RPG stuff! The game’s humorous mix of traditional fantasy and steampunk robots makes for an unforgettable experience with lots of laughs.

My own thoughts will have to wait a few days it seems, as the review key I was provided with needs some adjustments to the Steam configuration as it cannot access the Linux content. I've messaged the developer and publisher to sort it out. It's gotten glowing reviews from many others and the previous games were excellent, so I've no doubt this will be too.

You can pick up a copy on Steam right now.

Hopefully, unlike others, we can count on them to release the Linux/macOs builds on GOG. <3
Many thanks in advance for that!
Oooh. Must resist. Too many games to play right now...

SteamWorld games have all been brilliant, though!

I couldn't resist!

So far the game is like all other SteamWorld games ; enticing!

However I can see some very minor graphical glitches with mesa 18.3.4 and a Vega 64. Nothing major really, only some bushes here and there that flickers while walking.

All games from Image & Form are really good! Can't wait to play this one too!

I'll definitely get this at some point as I love all their other games - even though I've never played a game of this type!

Man, they're making games faster than I can play them! I haven't played Dig 2 yet...

Gutted to say that this doesn't launch on my Ubuntu 16.04 system. I've refunded for now, and I'll have to consider the jump to Ubuntu Mate 18.04 soon, I think. This is the second game that fails to launch on the older LTS (Chronicon also fails to launch).
