The Game Kitchen and Team17 today confirmed that Blasphemous will finally launch official Linux support on Monday, September 21 after the original 2019 release.
"Play as The Penitent One - a sole survivor of the massacre of the ‘Silent Sorrow’. Trapped in an endless cycle of death and rebirth, it’s down to you to free the world from this terrible fate and reach the origin of your anguish."
Something we've been waiting quite a while on, as Blasphemous is another game that had Linux as a platform during a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign back in 2017. Linux support was due to arrive with the first DLC which came and went in early August with it still not appearing, so it will be fantastic to have another tick in the box there. Not only because of that, Blasphemous on a whole does look genuinely fantastic and it has reviewed very well overall by users and critics alike.

We already have a copy, that the developer provided to us quite some time ago, so you can expect some of our own thoughts to be posted up sometime after the release. Allowing time to play plenty of it of course.
