As it turns out, it was originally a possible title that would see Linux support at launch. Sadly though, the developer had to delay the Linux version as they were working on it right up to release. Ethan "flibitijibibo" Lee is working on the port and he gave an update a few days ago:

Initial builds of FMF Linux/macOS have been put into testing. Networking isn't on the table until it gets cleared out for Windows and Xbox, but there's stuff I'm doing in the meantime - filename case sensitivity is the big one. Audio seems to be fine now and all the other features seem to work, but there are enough file paths in the engine and in the content to where testing is going to be a while. Depending on how crashy it is I may do public testing but I'll get back to you on that.

Good to know it's coming, but it sounds like cross-platform multiplayer might not be possible. Thankfully, it offers full local co-op as well as online co-op "and every variation in between", so it sounds like two people on one PC might be able to play with another online. On top of that, it's design to also allow you to play by yourself, so the developer seems to have thought of it all.

It looks fun. I might buy this one once it's playable

I'm a big fan of Rogue Legacy. It was punishing with it's nonstop deaths but still managed to hook me. If RL is any indication, this should be fun. Plus the artwork looks pretty rad.

I still fail to see where the cross platform is such an issue for multiplayer, that really cripples the game. I don't personally care, as I'd only play with friends or local, but I thin it'll be an issue for people at large in general if they can't get they pug on.

Ok, I'm buying this once its released. It looks to sweet to pass up on.
