Linux Support:

“We had not previously considered a Linux release. But we are using Unity. So it would be easy to make a Linux build of our demo if there is interest.
We’re going to be releasing our demo next month.”

So Can’t Get Enough Games will send out the Demo soon. The email goes on to explain, “I’ll be happy to send you a Linux build.”
But at the time of writing, there is no Steam page. And no way to Wishlist to show interest in Cold Calling.
Mind you, the way I understand this reply. A native build is incoming. So you can sign up for the Demo on the official website. And show some Tux Love on Twitter.
