Having recently been emailed news about this new development. The release is now due to arrive until 2021. But only Windows PC support is listed. Here’s what Astral Pixel have to say about Linux.

Currently, Super Magbot is using Unreal Engine 4. And for tilemap editing we are using Tiled.
The game is using Unreal Engine 4. So a Linux/other platforms port should be feasible. But it’s something we will think/plan when the game content is finished or nearly finished.

It’s also a pleasure to see Linux included in the mix. Really all it takes is asking a developer directly. And in this case, an honest reply. Even though we don’t have a specific release date yet.
