Wizard of Legend [Official Site, Steam] is a very promising looking fast-paced 2D dungeon crawler I briefly mentioned last year, the new trailer is looking good. They've announced that they've teamed up with Humble Bundle to publish the game, although it seems they will only handle the console releases.
The actual release is expected sometime next year, but no clear date is being given yet. To keep us going, they've put together a fancy new trailer to showcase some of the newer content:

I'm excited, because they've already proven they can do a fully working Linux version with the demo that was up with their Kickstarter, which I tested. The mechanics all felt pretty solid too, so it's going to be fun to see that translated into a full game.
