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.

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.
