Bounty Battle [Official Site] is a fighting game taking characters from many other popular indie games like Darkest Dungeon, Awesomenauts, Guacamelee (and many more). It's crowdfunding on Fig and I have to say I'm pretty excited about it.

They are looking to get at least $30,000 in funding, with 65% of that already achieved thanks to backers and funding from Fig itself. They have 28 days left of the campaign, so this should easily get funded!

Linux is clearly listed as a platform on the campaign too. I've reached out to them directly just to get some extra confirmation too, in case anyone wanted it and I will update here when they reply.
Update - They replied here with:
QuoteYes but a little later than the windows version, time to test well! :)

There you have it, a slight delay, but a delay for a good reason. Testing is vitally important for a good release.

Love the idea, hope the execution will be as good.

I always had this idea, but i can't make games. This is great but i don't like the 2D graphics, i would prefer a fully 3D game like Smash Bros.
Also, "a little later than the windows version" can be anything, you remember Skullgirls and other titles? (I backed Skullgirls)

There is an Indie Mario Kart Clone too, but again, it's focused on 2D graphics, it's like SNES Mario Kart.

An indie mashup without Shovel Knight? Is that even legal?
