Featuring some pretty great looking pixel-art, the in-development action-RPG metroidvania FOUNTAINS has a demo available with Native Linux support you can try right now.

"The Fountain of Youth was hidden away. Nonetheless, it is fated that the malevolent Usurper shall slay the Ageless and unearth it once more.

FOUNTAINS is an action-RPG about fighting your way through a maze-like interconnected world. You'll take the role of a hooded stranger, recently imprisoned by a tyrannical regime. Will you escape and uncover the mysteries of this war-torn empire?"

Played the demo a week ago. Pretty nice and not overly difficult. Missing some things on the technical aspect. Made a complete mess of fullscreen on my ultrawide (scaled it to the width and then clipped the bottom off), so I had to go windowed with the only option being a very small screen. I'm sure Godot allows for better handling of these things, so that's definitely something that needs attention.

Reminds me of Hyper Light Drifter, Resolutiion, Wizard Of Legend to name a few you might have heard of. :)
