Dig or Die open world sandbox for Windows, also shows signs for a Linux port. Thanks to French independent game development studio Gaddy Games.

Gaddy Games are proud to announce that after three years of development. Dig or Die, the sci-fi sandbox survival strategy game, finally gets a full release on Steam.

To date, Dig or Die has support from a community strong with 160,000 users. While maintaining a 91% Very Positive review score on its Steam page.

Dig or Die full release is available for $11.99 USD, 11.99€ in the Euro Zone and £9.29 in the UK.

Linux port:

“The game is made with Unity in C# with a C++ plugin. Linux port is not planned but as your question suggested, could be done.”

So this also means that the sole developer will have to put more time into the port. And your guess is as good as mine as to how long. Since the dev mentions concerns such as, “the port & maintenance time, and skills, as I develop the game alone.” Yikes!!
Even though this is positive news to begin with, the port could be a ways off.
