Tomorrow Corporation have officially announced that their programming puzzle game 7 Billion Humans will launch on August 23rd with Linux support.
Always love their style, I have fond memories of World of Goo which was one of the indie games that came to Linux back in the "early days" of 2009. Tomorrow Corporation also previously put out Human Resource Machine and Little Inferno, so it's really great to see yet another developer continue supporting Linux for so long.
