Kingdoms and Castles [fig, Greenlight, Official Site] is a city-building game set in what looks like middle ages. It has some really cute graphics and it's confirmed for a Linux release.

It's currently seeking funds on fig, although it has already reached the goal thanks to a heavy sum from fig itself. It's also looking for votes on Steam Greenlight as well, which should be easy for a game that looks this good.

I love the style and as a fan of city-builders it looks like something I will enjoy a lot. To be honest I think it looks brilliant!

About the game
Inspired by the SimCity series, Banished, and Stronghold, Kingdoms and Castles is a game about growing a kingdom from a tiny hamlet to a sprawling city and imposing castle.

Your kingdom must survive a living and dangerous world. Do the viking raiders make off with your villagers? Or are they stopped, full of arrows, at the castle gates? Does a dragon torch your granary, your people dying of starvation in the winter, or are you able to turn the beast back? The success of your kingdom depends solely on your skill as a city and castle planner.
