Killing Room, the rogue-like FPS has been delayed for Linux

I'm pretty sad about this, as I thought Killing Room [Steam, Official Site] actually looked really fun. I noticed the Steam page now only lists Windows, so I asked the developer about it and the Linux version is now delayed.

QuoteWe had to postpone Linux version, we are extremely busy making complete game for Windows right now, fixing bugs etc and while our Linux version already got Steam approval for release, it has some specific bugs that we won't be able to fix before release next week. It will have to wait, same goes for Mac version. We are sorry for this.

Killing Room is a first person shooter mixed with a rogue-like RPG and reality-show parody. You are an (un)lucky contestant in Killing Room, a popular reality-show in a decadent 22nd century. You know that there is only glory or death – with death winning in 99 out of 100 cases.

Hopefully they won't keep us waiting too long.

Well, at least they are open and communicative I admire developers like that... at least they honestly say what is going on!

Alright, so who wants to take bets on which will release first, Killing Floor 2 or Killing Room?

Not the only game to lose Linux support on release, i had "Syndrome" in my wish list for ages only to find on release (6th Oct 2016) that the Linux Icon/System Specs had been removed, No more Linux Support, Never got around to asking why as Linux support is being drop from games a lot of late.

The game was covered here: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/new-trailer-for-first-person-horror-game-syndrome-looks-good-linux-supported.7916

And the steam page here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/409320/?snr=1_7_7_151_150_2

QuoteIt will be available soon. We had to update the engine version because of some Linux specific issues, but while it fixed these issues, it also created some others. As soon as go through all of these, we'll launch it.
