Rogue-lite, metroidvania action-platformer Dead Cells [Official Site] is to leave Early Access likely in August, with a Linux version currently being worked on.
Entering my mailbox earlier was the release announcement:
With the seventh update rolling out on Early Access, Dead Cells is very close to being content complete, the lore being the last piece of the puzzle we’re working on for launch day. Although version 1.0 definitely won’t be the end, as we’ve already promised one major free DLC to the community that made all of this possible.Steve Filby, Producer at Motion Twin
Now, we knew it was going to get a Linux version, so the question has been a matter of when and not if. The developer did say back in February, that they hoped for a May/June date for the Linux version. With the latest update, I spoke to their PR team who told me it will be out at launch or "maybe even before". Turns out, their announcement on Steam actually mentions the Linux version:
This Seventh Update is the first of a few smaller updates before the lore arrives at launch and we are hard at work on the Mac and Linux versions!
I'm pretty excited about Dead Cells personally, as it has some seriously positive reviews with ~94% of over thirteen thousand user reviews on Steam being positive. That's pretty crazy, so they've done something seriously right with it.
Here's a recent video of some gameplay:
