Children of Morta, a very good looking story-driven action RPG from Dead Mage and 11 bit studios release in early September. It was supposed to have Linux support but they've been pretty quiet on it.

We wrote about this back in June, noting that the developer confirmed a Linux version was still happening. Sadly the release came and went with no word on the Linux version. However, searching around on September 24th they did reply on Steam to say that "We plan to add Linux support, yes. Again, can't promise any dates at the moment.". Today as well, the publisher 11 bit studios did also email GamingOnLinux to confirm this "It's happening, but right now we don't have an exact date of when it will be available.".

Great to know it's happening, shame it seems quite delayed but as always good things seem to come to those who wait as it's being reviewed very well by critics and users. They also announced recently that they've already covered the cost of development within a few days of releasing.

Children of Morta is an action RPG with a rogue-lite approach to character development, where you don’t play a single character - but a whole, extraordinary family of heroes. Hack’n’slash through hordes of enemies in procedurally generated dungeons, caves and lands and lead the family of Bergsons, with all their flaws and virtues, against the forthcoming Corruption.

Until the release, you can wishlist and follow it on Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

Yeah, sure…

And "Unreal Tournament 3" with "The Witcher 3" for good measure.

Sadly, words are cheap. Double so when it comes down to Linux support.

On my wishlist...worth a buy once it hits Linux (if I get caught up on games it will be wroth a buy to play video Proton before then). I'm sure it will be Gold/Plat on Proton soon enough if not already, but native please.

Wow, lots of salty comments out there :) Nothing quite as encouraging to an indiedev than a community filled with dread and negativity :)

I for one trust both Dead Mage and 11bit to fulfill that promise. But since I am a fan of the studio I would probably still use Steam Play to play Children of Morta on Linux without a proper Linux build available.

So three articles about it here, the devs kept saying they'd release a port and now more than three months after release there is still nothing and the devs went quiet on the topic. It's sad once more.
