In the game there is no way back and only one way forward. Enter blood-soaked underworlds inspired by ancient myths. All due to arrive with a death-metal soundtrack. Face ceaseless battles on the perilous path to Elysium. Stave off a barbarous fate and slay hordes of infernal creatures on the black sands of Purgatory.

As for Linux support for PERISH, there are options.

PERISH is developed on a custom Nvidia branch of Unreal Engine 4.27.
It works quite well through the Proton layer on a Steam Deck…

At the time of writing, the developer has not looked at a proper Linux port just yet. But they are interested, “we have a lot of post-release plans in mind.” So this is not a full out confirmation, but it’s quite close it.

PERISH Release Date Trailer

Sell their corpses to a glorious priestess in exchange for more powerful melee weapons and firearms. Overwhelm massive bosses and use the spoils of war to gain entrance to Elysium. Since this is where death and gold await thee.

The same lust for gold that motivates your own craving in PERISH, also consumes the creatures within Purgatory. Succumb to these dark souls and be forced to lose precious wealth and begin again. Muster up to three friends and reap the tides of merciless hordes together. Deploy co-op specific gear to support. While you defend and revive each other on the risky path toward eternal oblivion.

You can try the Steam Demo via Proton on Linux. It works very well and definitely worth playing.
