One game you should keep an eye on that was briefly covered here recently is An Amazing Wizard, an upcoming action roguelike that looks pretty fun. The developer just launched a Kickstarter campaign, and there's a demo available - and it has full Native Linux support.

Taking inspiration from Dead Cells, Risk of Rain, Wizard of Legend and more if you like any of those you'll probably feel right at home with An Amazing Wizard. I still think it's a dull name, but at least the game seems like a lot of fun.

"Defeat kings of everchanging worlds to recover your lost memories. With each difficulty level, the world becomes more and more distorted by Chaos. Break cosmic rules by designing your own Magic — add special effects to spells and merge them as you desire!"
