SELINI is an alluring 2.5D metroidvania game for Linux and Windows PC coming to Kickstarter. Thanks to further details from father and son developer CYMBAN. Working to make its way onto Steam after the Kickstarter crowdfunding.
SELINI puts the players in a ruined and dystopian world. While letting you discover its lore by yourself, simply by observing. Since there is no text or speech in the entire game, the whole story is unravels by the settings. Including the gameplay itself, colors, body language, etc. What is certain, is that the game wants to provoke the player. Due to test you about environmental, social, and ethical beliefs. That test will also include Linux support.
Regarding your question, there will certainly be a Linux version on release.
Having received an email from CYMBAN explaining SELINI, my curiosity peaked. Of course, I can confirm that the game is being developed in Unity 3D. Plus there is a Kickstarter campaign coming, with a Demo. But the Demo will only offer a Windows PC build. Due to CYMBAN focusing their attention on marketing. They are an indie dev team after all. But with Proton, this should be a solid plan B, until the full release. But first, check out the trailer.
