Linux Support email reply:

The answer, in short, is yes.
The demo,will partially support Linux, but when the game releases in Early Access the whole game will fully support Linux, Mac, and PC.

So this is a bit unclear, but Heart of Muriet development is using Unity 3D. Meaning, porting to Linux should be straight forward. With possible native Linux support coming via Early Access in 2023. But the full game release will offer support for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
However, right now, you can play the Demo now on Steam via Proton. It works rather well out of the box too. Letting you take on the first three stages of the campaign and use the level editor. Which is much better than expected.

Luckily, a young, powerful Seener wizard survived the siege. Who is now on a quest to restore the Seener to its former glory.

Teaming up with Elves, Dwarfs, and Mages, you’ll need to build and manage settlements. All while researching powerful magic to overcome the enemy in tense, company based warfare.

Combine your resources with troop management and research progression. While you use base building to overcome the Heart of Muriet single-player campaign. Then restore the Seneer to its former power.

After restoring glory to the fabled lands of Muriet. Players can play in 1v1 skirmishes on maps they or their friends have created. A full-level editor will be available, offering the opportunity to create a map and set objectives. While restricting army size and even add an AI team to create a co-op experience.
