The action platformer Mighty No. 9 looks like it has its SteamOS icon back, but looking at reports it's not yet playable on Linux.
I've already seen a report from one user saying it's not playable, and looking at SteamDB it seems the Linux content depot isn't assigned to anything but beta and developer keys.
So this is just a reminder to hold off, a SteamOS icon doesn't always mean the Linux version is actually up yet, sadly. Steam really needs to sort that out. It joins a long list of Steam+Linux issues.
About the game
Mighty No. 9 is a Japanese 2D Side-scrolling Action game that takes the best elements from 8 and 16-bit classics that you know and love and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh and amazing!
You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by a mysterious computer virus that has caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way through twelve stages using weapons and abilities stolen from your enemies to take down your fellow Mighty Number robots and confront the final evil that threatens the planet!
Every aspect of Mighty No. 9’s development—art, level design, music, programming, etc.—is being handled by veteran Japanese game creators with extensive experience in the genre, all the way up to and including the project’s leader, Keiji Inafune himself!
