The developer of Undertale replied to a user question about what is going on with the Linux port.
Here's the message that was shared by someone who emailed them on the Steam forum:
QuoteApologies to anyone looking forward to the Linux version who's been frustrated with the lack of communication.
The reason I didn't say anything earlier is because nothing has really happened - I haven't been working on it, but I haven't given up, either. Basically I tried attempting it once and hit some road blocks, pushed it to the side for a bit, and ended up getting hugely distracted with a ton of other things that felt more pressing.
Here's the deal: I'll try again to do the Linux version. I'll make it my priority right now. If I can't make enough progress in a week, I'll look into getting someone else to do it.
We have no way to verify this is really from the developer, so hopefully it is true.
Perhaps the developer could seek help from a porter like Ethan Lee who has been a bit of a machine recently hitting 38 Linux ports now.
