On the developers website - http://www.citeremis.com/- it says a linux client is on its way, will it also be added to the indieGameStand pack?

Until then I'm going to see if the demo works on wine, versions 1.5 seems to be silver on WineHQ: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=22537

Nullzero - good question. I will verify with the developer or ask him to post here to verify that once the Linux version is available it will be uploaded to IGS. We certainly have the infrastructure for it so I think this would be easy enough. I will get an official answer though.

The Linux version is actually working (well on ubuntu at least), I only need someone to help me do the installer for specific package manager (.deb - debian/ubuntu) and (.rpm for OpenSuse and other) - or take the time to understand package management on linux....

So yes, as soon as I get these ready I will happily upload the Linux versions on IGS :)

I've helped a couple of other Windows developers package their games for Linux so if you want I can try to help, assuming it doesn't have any complex dependencies. I mostly work with Debian/Ubuntu to create a .deb (usually just stick the binaries under /opt with some links in /usr/bin) and then use alien to generate an RPM. If you have a Debian/Ubuntu box, then I can also write up a simple doc on how you can do this for future releases. Let me know.

FYI, I've owned your game for years now but I'm ashamed to say I've never finished it (though the primary reason for that was that it doesn't work perfectly in Wine, and I try to do all my gaming in Linux - I guess it's time to buy it again at the IGS since you'll be adding the Linux version). I also maintain a thread for IGS at CAG (http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/sho ... p?t=329050) and hopefully that's driving some traffic & sales. Good luck!

Nice platformer, with climatic atmosphere and graphic.

You're going in the good way IGS, I think that introducing the titles, which weren't before in another indie bundles is cool idea!

The game feels a lot like Diablo 2, but in 2-D and I love it.
Really good game!
Indiegamestand is really one of the best "Get nice Indiegames"-pages. Bought all the games I didn't own and all are really sweet!

Oh, i have to tell, that i never expected this game to be THAT buggy. Broken quest items is most bad point about it.

I started playing this a couple of days ago, and I'm really impressed. Beautiful world, very original setting, easy to get used to control scheme. A simple but very enjoyable side-scrolling RPG.

I generally find platformers irritating, but in this case it's clearly an RPG first and a platformer second. The platform elements are puzzly rather than pixel-perfect, and the penalties for falling are mild.

Unlike Toyotame, I haven't found much in the way of bugs. There's one guy who doesn't seem to give you any quest reward when you heal him, and I had one crash to desktop (worked fine on restart, and no noticeable lost progress due to auto-save.)

Highly recommended for anyone who'd like to try a more casual RPG experience.

It seams they've got the linux version almost up and running and are desperatly needing linux testers (http://citeremis.com/).


Also their email in the site is kind of obfuscated. Is it devs@citeremis.com or something else? :roll:

Lol, in my case i cannot send them anything because their crappy obfuscated mail cannot be decoded.
These developers sure know how to shoot in own foot.

Here's the obfuscated email:

<script type='text/javascript'> <!-- var prefix = 'ma' + 'il' + 'to'; var path = 'hr' + 'ef' + '='; var addy72346 = 'devs' + '@'; addy72346 = addy72346 + 'citeremis' + '.' + 'com'; document.write('<a ' + path + '\'' + prefix + ':' + addy72346 + '\'>'); document.write(addy72346); document.write('<\/a>'); //-->\n </script><script type='text/javascript'> <!-- document.write('<span style=\'display: none;\'>'); //--> </script>This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. <script type='text/javascript'> <!-- document.write('</'); document.write('span>'); //--> </script>

I see a 'devs' a '@' a 'citeremis' '.' 'com'
