The developers of 'STASIS' have been unable to bring the game officially to Linux, but their next game 'CAYNE' [Steam, Official Site] will have Linux support from Day-1. It will also be free, so that's really awesome considering how high-quality it looks.

While it's set in the same world as STASIS, the story sits by itself and you can enjoy it without knowing STASIS.

Details on the game's story are light, but you're 'Hadley' and you wake up in a strange facility. You're 9 months pregnant, and they want your baby...

Sounds interesting and horrifying at the same time.

Features
- Point-and-click adventure game with a modern edge
- Beautifully rendered HD isometric backgrounds
- Fully 3D animated characters
- Quality animated FMV
- Voice acted by professional actors
- Open translation system
- Computer systems that interact with the game world
- Intuitive puzzles to test your deductive skills
- A modern re-telling of the classic adventure game genre
- An adjunct story set in the world of STASIS
- 6:10 monitor support Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

From the later pages of this thread, it sounds like the devs are still plugging away at trying to get the linux build out for STASIS http://steamcommunity.com/app/380150/discussions/0/541907867777059868/

On page 14, they say they'll need linux testers for both games. They seem very linux-friendly too

I wonder what the reasoning is for releasing this for free.. it looks great.

EDIT: Oooh, I think I figured it out. CAYNE is releasing the same day (Jan 24) that they're launching a kickstarter for their new game "beautiful DESOLATION". So it looks like CAYNE might be getting released for free to help bring attention to their other new game. I imagine this one is coming to Linux as well.

Stasis is apparently still coming. Nice to see the dev has noticed us as a market and made sure this one is portable.

They have great cutscenes skills, but the ingame graphics look very dated to me in comparison.

I'm especially excited about that 6:10 monitor support.

Well, that looked pretty horrific. I'm getting flashbacks to that scene in Prometheus...

Free? Honestly? That's pretty incredible...

Looks too good to be true, what's the catch?

stanThey have great cutscenes skills, but the ingame graphics look very dated to me in comparison.

They look fantastic to me! That they look "old" doesn't mean that they look "dated" but oh well, I'm the kind of person that watches other isometric graphics from lets say Ultima Online, Fallout (the classics), Baldurs Gate (and other oldies that use the Infinity engine), Kingdom Under Fire (the original), etc and still think that they are a timeless piece of art. But that's just my humble opinion.

I played STASIS under WINE: worked well, it has an OpenGL renderer. But honestly I found the game a little bit boring...
