City of the Shroud, a real-time tactical RPG just recently launched on Steam and it turns out it's had a Linux demo build for testing for a long time, with hardly anyone stepping up to check it out.
This post on Steam, open since October 2016 seemed to have no one reply to it until June this year. Now it's actually getting some attention, the developer has actually put up a new build (make sure to use the newer build in that later post). To be clear, you don't need to own it to test it, as it's an external demo download.
I've tested the newer version and it does seem to work quite nicely, the only other user report currently also claims it works perfectly too. Hopefully with more people checking it out, they can officially support a Linux version.
