Milkstone Studios have announced Ziggurat 2, a follow-up to the excellent first-person dungeon-crawler and it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

In the sequel Milkstone say they've redesigned it from the ground up, with the aim to take everything good about the original and improve every part of it with a "smoother and faster experience, with quicker, more intense sessions, and more interactive and fulfilling progression".

Currently though, it's only been announced fully for Windows and macOS support. However, speaking on the Steam forum a developer promptly replied to a user asking about Linux with this:

Hi! Initially we were planning to add Linux support later during development, however we may still change our mind about it, and add it right from the beginning.

If you would actually buy it for Linux, then it may be worth letting them know in this linked topic

The first game was a huge amount of fun, so hopefully they decide to offer proper support to Linux once again. I have fond memories of those weird carrot creatures running after me while taking them down with some kind of super powerful wand. As a first-person dungeon crawling shooter, it was easily one of the best around.

Follow Ziggurat 2 on Steam.

Update: they've now confirmed Linux support for the initial release!

I loved the first one, I hope this one is just as good and that it comes out on Linux too.

The first one is an excellent game. The second one will be an insta-buy for me if it gets the Linux release.

EDIT: Linux version confirmed

Quoting: WaaghManHi! We've decided to add Linux support to the game from the beginning. I must warn however that the game hasn't been tested too much in Linux, so some compatibility issues may arise.

I really enjoyed the first one and played lots of it. This second one looks very good from that trailer, and just quickly updating my wishlist, as this one has taken me by surprise.
If you like super-casual farming games, do check out their other game, Farm Together also. It's quite a cute little faffabout.

Easiest difficulty helps a lot. It still gives some challenge, but makes it possible to finish the game instead being stuck in first few levels.

Early access released with Linux support: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1159560/Ziggurat_2/

The game works pretty well with Mesa 20.0.8 (Ubuntu's LTS default version) and 20.2.1 (latest stable). I'm getting around 40's very stable fps with everything on very high and a little boost to 45's if I force vulkan API (-force-vulkan).
