One from the 'inbox of no return' that I sadly missed, Out of The Box from developer Nuclear Tales is a time-management thriller where you decide the fate of the quirky customers of a luxurious club and it has Linux support. Note: Key provided by the publisher.

As head of security, you will need to deal with the rules of the club which gradually get more complex. Find out who is lying, who is telling the truth and possibly throw a few punches. The story actually changes, depending on what you do during your time. Work with the police, gangsters or whoever.

About the game:

Every night, among the club’s visitors, you’ll find undercover cops, annoying celebrities, runaway criminals or ghosts from your past. As the new gatekeeper of The Box, you decide who enters and who doesn’t... by any means necessary. Be careful though, because each choice you make can influence the fate of the club and its clients. You’ll also need to keep your salary to avoid being evicted, to see your daughter again, and most importantly, to regain control of your life.

Will you let teenagers into the club in exchange for money? Will you confront a wealthy client to save his girlfriend when she asks you for help? Or will you work with the police to bring down the most powerful gangster in town?

There's been a lot of comparisons with Papers, Please with a new setting, so if you liked that there's a high chance you will enjoy this too. As for the Linux version, for me it worked without an issue. Performance was good and no noticable bugs I could see. It has some really nice art, the character design is done really well for sure and it's not always easy to tell if someone is old enough to get in the club.

It does take a little while to get going, personally I thought the start was a bit too slow. Even so, it's not bad at all.

Available now with Linux support on Steam.

Curious how much gameplay value there is or if it is a simple casual thing to be played in one afternoon.

The graphics look like they are straight from Randal's Monday. Wonder if it's the same artist. (Different studios, but both from Spain, so quite likely)
