Thanks to SteamDB it seems that Bound By Flame a graphically pleasing RPG may get a Linux version. It has mixed reviews, but it may be worth a look.

If you see this entry on SteamDB, it seems Linux is currently in a "qa_test" phase. This could mean it's close to release, but it could also be just the start of testing.

The funny thing is, I personally asked about a Linux version last year on their Steam forum. The reply was a simple "There is no Linux version planned for the moment". Looks like they changed their minds, which is great.

About the game (Official)
You are a mercenary possessed by a flame demon in a desperate world ravaged by seven Ice Lords and their Dead-Army.

In this RPG where all your choices lead to consequences, you will have to choose between unleashing the powers of the beast within and rejecting the demonic influence that wants to claim your humanity.

Freely develop your abilities and combat style through three skill trees: swing the heavy weapons of the Fighter, wield the sneaky dual daggers of the Ranger, or use the devastating flame spells of the Pyromancer.

Recruit companions who will live, love, hate and fight alongside you against the dreadful creatures of Vertiel, in real-time epic battles based on tactics and reaction.

The bigger the danger, the greater the temptation to draw on the demon’s power at the cost of your soul… which way will YOU choose?

Find Bound By Flame on Steam, but do not buy it until a Linux version is officially released. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Cool, here's hoping for a Linux version, and one that performs on-par with the Direct3D and other proprietary ones!

A metascore of 55% after 26 reviews on PC, 57% after 35 reviews on the PS4. That's not "mixed", that's "bad". In the sake of public information I felt the urge to share that info.

Metacritic? Seriously?

79% and lower deserves damnation too. I mean, what game in my library didn't meet Metacritic standards? /s

From Steam:
QuoteUser reviews: Mixed (1,284 reviews)

That is what I refer too.

I say bring it on!
Might not be perfect, but could be fun

Yet another one in the Not Worth Full Price™ series.

... And that is what you should stop referring to.
User ratings are worthless for anything but occasional - and very sporadic - entertainment. It most definitely is not a good source for a game rating.

But we've had this discussion before. I'll just take it as my task to tag the metascore to the articles when relevant! I am nothing but a humble public servant. ;)

What we have here is a bad game that now seeks a source for a few more dollars before they call it the day.

Metascore or steam score is useless. The only sane thing to do is watch some lets plays and decide for yourself if the game is to your liking or not. At least that is what I will do when the game really gets a Linux release.

I for one prefer reviews to gameplay videos. Written reviews often tell you why people like or dislike the game instead of just what gameplay looks like. After all, I'm trying to find out if I'd enjoy playing them, not if someone looking over my shoulder would be suitably entertained.

Maybe I'm not sane (to use your words), but I also find watching others play fairly boring (sorry Samsai ). I don't think I've ever watched a let's play for more than a couple of minutes. Also, these videos spoil a lot of stuff for any game where that matters. Like most of the games I'm interested in.

Absolutely.
In time I've learned to ignore reviews from wherever they might be, Steam or dedicated sites because I found that we rarely agree.
And that maybe because I'm more forgiving about aspects that might drive other people mad in their reviews.
So watching a gameplay from the first part of the game (if possible without commentary) is the best way to make my own opinion, without others telling me what to think.
