A Story About My Uncle is a rather good looking first person adventure from Gone North Games and published by Coffee Stain Studios (think Sanctum 2 and Goat Simulator). It looks like it's heading to Linux too, which is obviously awesome.

Info from SteamDB (as usual!):
QuoteChanged Depots
278363/config/oslist: linux
278363/name: A Story About My Uncle Linux

Of course as with all SteamDB leaks, this doesn't mean it will come for Linux, but they are at least testing it.

About the game
A Story About My Uncle is a first person platforming adventure game about a boy who searches for his lost uncle, and ends up in a world he couldn’t imagine existed. Take help of your uncle’s mysterious inventions that let you jump incredibly high and far through beautiful scenery, uncover clues to your uncle’s whereabouts, and meet fantastical creatures that will help you on your journey.

The movement in A Story About My Uncle is a crucial part of its core gameplay – focusing on swinging through the world with a grappling hook that gives the player a wonderful sense of speed and freedom. Soar through a game world with a unique art style and a mysterious story that unravels before you.

Check out A Story About My Uncle on Steam, remember not to buy it until the official Linux/SteamOS release.

Why they are making Linux ports always after I already purchased and finished it on Windows? :(

I got it from a Humble Bundle and it appeared two days ago in my game list, so it's very likely that it comes to Linux.

Because you don't have the patience to wait for the Linux ports to arrive, obviously. :P

Goat Simulator

Any clue about the engine it uses ?

This could be interesting with steamVR, I guess. Maybe not playable, but at least interesting.

Looks like a whole game set on Xen... *shudders* Not even Alien: Isolation managed such horror! :P

Looks like a fun game. Hopefully GOG gets the Linux version as well.

My money is on this being a Ryan Gordon port, considering he did the other two for them.
