Sumoman [Steam] is confirmed to be coming to Linux and after watching the trailer I'm officially sold on it. We do have a great variety of platformers, but the physics at play here looks hilarious.

It looks like a good mix of difficulty and comedy blended together with physics, so it's exactly the kind of game I want to play and livestream.

It listed Linux on the Greenlight page, but I've also been shared an email with the developer confirming a Linux version should launch day-1 along with the Windows version.

About the game
Sumoman – is an adventure puzzle platformer with an advanced physics, destructible objects and ability to reverse time. Solve various physical puzzles, trying to keep an unstable Sumoman on his feet in the challenging environments.

A young Sumoman returning home from the sumo tournament finds his fellow countrymen in a dramatic peril. Someone has enchanted the inhabitants of the island putting them to the eternal sleep. Our clumsy yet fearless hero starts his journey across the beautiful ancient Japan to find out the source of the magical dream. He will have to overcome the puzzling contraptions and threatening surroundings to brake dreaming spell and wake up charmed people. Sumoman makes no haste, because nothing can be worse for a noble hero than to fall over and lie helplessly.
