Daedalic Entertainment have been a good developer and publisher for Linux and they continue to be great. Edna & Harvey: The Breakout - Anniversary Edition, the upgraded version of the 2008 adventure game is now on Linux.

This enhanced version of the multi-award winning adventure game released in December last year, with it gaining Linux (and macOS) support only yesterday. It has been given a "complete overhaul" with better controls, high resolution art and "new technology" (so an upgraded game engine and things like that).

What's the story here then?

When Edna wakes up, she has no memories of her past, or why she finds herself in the padded cell of a sanatorium. Though she hasn't the slightest idea how she ended up in a cell, one thing is certain: She wants to get out of there!

After all, she feels positively sane – and her talking plush bunny Harvey absolutely agrees. Together they try to make their escape and meet the weirdest inmates – from a man in a bee costume to the pseudo-siamese twins Hoti and Moti. But Dr. Marcel, the head of the sanatorium, does everything in his power to stop Edna from leaving. What is his endgame? And why has her memory been wiped? Bit by bit, Edna remembers the time before the sanatorium...

Have a look at the trailer if you've never heard of it before:

If you're into point and click and didn't yet play it: Get it.
Edna is a labour of love the creator did in university.
I was at Daedalic's once and they said, it wouldn't be commercially feasible to put so much work in such a game under normal cirumstances.

I like their claim in the news:
Less boundaries - more insanity!

Seeing no native version as a boundary... That's the spirit!

Ah, maybe they're then ready to also deploy my Linux port of the original game, at least as a steam beta, too. Last time they were too busy with other projects to look at my code here

I just bought the DRM-free Gog version of the (windows only) original last year. If the new version became DRM-free I'd buy it again.

I hope they will release it on GOG too!
