There's a lot of sweet Linux games to look forward to, one of them being Chained Echoes. Set in a world where a Dragon is as common a sight as a mechanised suit flying around.

Funded on Kickstarter and listed in our little overview of crowdfunded titles coming to Linux, the creator Matthias Linda announced that it now has a Steam page live where you can follow along. They also confirmed on Twitter, that the Linux (and macOS) releases are still planned. Another reminder of a quality-looking title coming to Linux.

We have a wait on our hands here though, as it's not due out until next year. This is one I hope they truly take their time to craft a meaningful experience, as the world and style do look quite incredible. Going by the updates on Kickstarter, work has been progressing well.

Oh, I like the style. Not the biggest fan of turn based combat in general, but I'll have to see.

This is exactly my jam. Been looking forward to it for quite a while now, glad to see I can wishlist it at least.

The styling is very attractive. That alone makes me want to play it, however I've never been able to get into JRPG style combat.
