Emberfish Games recently announced Hadean Tactics, a deck-builder with auto-battling that will be coming to Linux when it enters Early Access later this Summer. Linux support is confirmed, and stated by the developer on Steam.

Hadean Tactics is a deckbuilding autobattler with roguelike elements. Choose a Hero, build your deck, go against monsters, and forge your own path down to the bottom of the underworld to defeat the lord of demons!

While there's not much footage on it yet, there is a short trailer that gives us just a taste of what to expect from it. After watching it back a few times, I get the sense it's a blending of Slay the Spire complete with a node-based map to explore and Dota Underlords and that's actually pretty interesting. Not only that, the two together makes it quite unique since you have the added control using your card collection. I'm very interested to see how this will play out.

What is an auto-battler?

Anything auto-related mechanism is a big turn off for me, even if it has a toggle switch to turn it off. Just my opinion.
