Hellpoint [Official Site] is a dark sci-fi action RPG that plans to go to Kickstarter sometime soon and they have added Linux support to their demo.

While I shy away from a lot of Kickstarters, Cradle Games are doing it right. They spoke to the community and posted on reddit to get feedback. Getting a Linux build out ASAP for testing shows commitment to me. Not just that, but it shows they are capable of getting a Linux version of their game running. They seem very responsive to feedback too, which is encouraging.

Find the demo link here: http://www.cradlegames.com/Demo/Hellpoint_Demo_Linux_v016b.zip.

I've seen a number of people compare it to Dark Souls. I've never played Dark Souls, but Hellpoint seems pretty cool so far. Hopefully when they launch on Kickstarter it will be a success for them, as it seems like a game to be good to have in full on Linux.

Looking forward to seeing what becomes of Hellpoint for sure.

About the game
Introducing Hellpoint, a dark augurist action RPG for PC and consoles, brought to you by Canadian developer Cradle Games. Embark on a soul conjuring journey aboard a derelict space station and figure out the twisted series of events that led to an occult quantum catastrophe. Hunt, or be hunted by insane mobs, decadent daemons, and deep space monsters, all under the constant watch of the black hole.

Dark Souls is one thing I wish we had on Linux, so Hellpoint is more than welcome

Looks interesting, an(other) eye on it!

Off Topic: Has someone counted how many eyes would we need to keep track on all things we keep an eye on? xD

I'm looking forward to testing the multiplayer out on this one.

Very high chance i'll buy this if it comes.

Cool, this looks interesting. And the fact that they added Linux support to their tech demo so early speaks to their technical skill.

Very high chance I will back it on the Kickstarter...

I tried the demo. It runs pretty well!

Now i just need to know more about the premise and what other features they have.

Is it using Vulkan as the renderer?

Currently, it's using OpenGL to render. They do intend to update to Unity 5.6, so they can use Vulkan.

I'm pretty sure Liam views us all as Shoggoth.
