This news comes in thanks to GOL user Creak, who sent word that it seems 'Event' [Official Site, Steam, itch.io] is closing in on a Linux release.
Last month the developer stated this about the Linux version:
QuoteWe're currently solving the last remaining issues with the sound engine. Everything else is working. If we fix these, there'll be a build :-)
I'm seriously excited about this one! It's the exact type of setting that I would happily play from start to finish. Will you grab it at release for Linux?
About the game
Event is an award-winning narrative exploration game where you must build a relationship with a lonely spaceship computer to get home. Set in a retrofuture inspired by sci-fi classics such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, the game is about forging a personal relationship with your only companion, an insecure AI entity capable of procedurally generating over two million lines of dialog. You interact with the computer, named Kaizen, by typing messages on terminals throughout the ship. The reality of your situation will emerge organically as you communicate with Kaizen and explore the mysterious ship in first-person perspective.
