Join us on our own very special Reddit on /r/Linuxers.

The day after my birthday like a fashionably late present, Chasm is to launch with same-day Linux support on July 31st.

You can't link directly to comments on Steam news posts, but the developer clearly replied to a user asking about Linux support with "Win/Mac/Linux on launch!". You can't get better than that!

They also released a new teaser:

  • Explore six massive procedurally-assembled areas from hand-crafted rooms
  • Enjoy challenging retro gameplay and authentic pixel art (384x216 native res.)
  • Battle massive bosses and discover new abilities to reach previously inaccessible areas
  • Customize your character by equipping armor, weapons, and spells
  • Linux, Mac & Windows versions with full Gamepad support

I've been personally pouring hours into Dead Cells and it's completely hooked me in, so I very much look forward to another experience like it. The teaser trailer certainly does a good job of selling it to me, that cute deadly little creature at the end was brilliant.

You can read their announcement about it here.
