Blood will be Spilled, a narrative spaghetti western platformer with tactical turn-based combat is coming to Linux

Ditto the Steamworld games; the art style is similar, and the gameplay looks a lot like Steamworld Heist. It's a flattering comparison, Steamworld Heist is a great game.

Patola.

Moreover, realistic games might look awesome, but even if we do not directly realize it, they require a lot of our unconscious brainpower so that we recognize faces, three-dimensionality with depth, motion, outlines and volumes, and after a long exposure to complex scenes we get exhausted by all that stuff. Simplistic, colorful and pixelated graphics, on the other hand, are very easy to recognize and process, so it might have a relaxing effect -- or at least not be so tiresome.

I'd never thought of that, it's interesting. Did you read it somewhere or it's your own conjecture?

doesn't look all that great, but I did chuckle at the idea of a bum getting a stradivarius to decorate his cardboard box

It took me a long time before I gave Sunless Sea a proper play, and while it was a little grindy and static, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience overall.

Project Zomboid development keeps on shuffling forward

I've put some time into this game and enjoyed it, but ultimately it had enough problems that I gave up on it. When it works it's a fantastic survival/scavenging/loneliness simulator, but there are problems. The UI is really clunky, and the balance is way off; a lot of skills that should be midgame (eg moving towards self-sufficient food production) are impossible without late-game skill levels, so everything slows to a halt while you grind up skills - particularly construction.
