Alterium Shift is inspired by the JRPG greats, it's coming to Steam with Native Linux support and it has a brand new demo now available. Definitely reminds me of a few classics I played back in the day, with the developers saying they were inspired directly by older SNES titles and their love of games like Chrono Trigger and FFVI.
"Choose between three heroes in training; Pyra, Atlas, and Sage. Their teacher, Dolion, strives to mold his students into heroes, ones better than himself. The three heroes are taking their final test before being sent off on an important and life changing mission. Each character has a unique story path to experience and each path is filled with choices that are directed by the player. What fate awaits these heroes and can they accomplish the tasks set forth before them?"
Check out the trailer below:
You can find the new demo on Steam.
- It's very effective!
Quoting: PendragonChained Echoes just came out though, so that's currently higher on the playlistYeah. I wanted not to buy that, as I still need to complete Eastward and Rise of the Third Power. But it looks amazing and has a native Linux version, so I could not resist. And I'm not even a JRPG fan! (at least that's what I keep telling myself)
Looks simple but cute (unlike many attemps which claim "retro" but are actually just rushed graphics) and fun (funny/catchy scenes including clever motion effects, couple hints of some story depth though I'm pretty hard to please on that front).
I'll definitely give it a better look (as well as the other games mentioned in previous comments)

Chained Echoes is LEGIT. Surprised the launch didn’t get a mention here.
See more from me
