Doesn't work on Linux
I know it's not marked as Linux compatible in the store but I checked that there's a Linux depot and indeed it does install a few hundred MB, but fails to run (missing executable). So it is possible to play on Linux, or should I just refund it?

Missing Executable error on Ubuntu 17.10

In the News section it does say "Snail Bob 2 is out now!

On Steam you can get it for PC, Linux, and Mac". Is the Linux version being worked on ?

Apparently there are actually Linux binaries being installed along with the remaining data under Linux (SnailBob2.x86 and SnailBob2.x86_64):

$ ldd SnailBob2.x86_64

linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffc1dee6000)
libdl.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdl.so.2 (0x00007fa56b89b000)
libpthread.so.0 => /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007fa56b67b000)
librt.so.1 => /usr/lib/librt.so.1 (0x00007fa56b473000)
libGLU.so.1 => /usr/lib/libGLU.so.1 (0x00007fa56b1f3000)
libGL.so.1 => /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 (0x00007fa56af63000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x00007fa56ac23000)
libXcursor.so.1 => /usr/lib/libXcursor.so.1 (0x00007fa56aa13000)
libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0x00007fa56a68b000)
libm.so.6 => /usr/lib/libm.so.6 (0x00007fa56a33b000)
libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0x00007fa56a123000)
libc.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc.so.6 (0x00007fa569d6b000)
/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 => /usr/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007fa56baa3000)
libGLX.so.0 => /usr/lib/libGLX.so.0 (0x00007fa569b33000)

Only that launching them just returns back to Steam claiming the usual "missing executable SnailBob2.exe"

Looks to me like this is either still work in progress and accidentally published for Linux, or it may work with only certain configurations and need some extra debugging to get it working properly. Do the devs need some help with testing on different Linux configurations? I'd be happy to do so at least with regard to Arch Linux / AMD64.
