Shelter 2, a really interesting looking open world adventure game has announced that Linux should see a day 1 release now.

Speaking on their Steam community hub, they stated this:
QuoteHi everyone!

We have just had a first play through of Shelter 2 on both Mac and Linux without any bugs.
We are now quite confident that all three platforms will indeed be released on monday.

We will keep looking but so far we have had no platform specific bugs that would make us delay the Mac and Linux versions.

lots of excitement here at the office!

About the game (Official)
The beauty of nature goes hand in hand with its unforgiving rawness. That is central in Shelter 2, and one of the reasons we chose to make a game about a Lynx. They are in middle of the food chain, and there are far more vicious things out on the cold tundra.

The game follows the life of a mother lynx, starting as a pregnant animal, giving birth and continuing in to a journey of parenthood where nurturing her cubs is paramount for survival. Shelter 2 includes more elaborate gameplay features than its predecessor, such as stamina, different types of movements, jumps and a variety of prey to kill. Besides hunting there are several maternal and hunting features, such as calling the cubs closer, smell for prey, making sure they drink water from rivers and lifting and carrying your cubs from harm’s way.

A vast wilderness awaits

Environments in Shelter 2 are much bigger than it’s predecessor and allow a lot more freedom than ever before, allowing players to find favorite spots to return to. This time weather and seasons change, harsh winters and bloomy summers awaits you!
The music is once again presented by Retro Family, awarded for their work on the Pid Soundtrack, and the visuals have been reinvented by adding dense atmosphere and lighting to the patterned graphical art-style.

They never did get around to porting the first Shelter, but considering how much better this one looks/sounds I'm happy to have it. Article taken from

What's up with that graphics? It hurts my eyes more than the picture of the blue/black dress.

Very original and pretty graphics… But the description makes it seem it’s not an adventure game but rather some sort of survival thing.

It's a bit of a mishmash really.

I really like the sort of low-poly graphics look too. Not sure if it's my kind of game though. Would love to see them port Pid to Linux, as that's a pretty unique platformer with some devilish boss-fights.

Very nice, unique graphics... sadly singleplayer only. I don't often buy sp games.

The look and feel reminds me of Okami, which I like. That particular style does tend to polarize opinion though.

The game is beautiful. I really enjoy it. But at the same time, I'm always afraid to lose one of the little kittens.
