SickBrick is an action-oriented Sci-Fi FPS with modern graphics and oldschool gameplay inspired by Portal and Serious Sam. Out now for Windows, Linux and Mac! (linux version uses a wine wrapper) It's a straightforward FPS with some stuff added like two levels where you drive a tank and little platforming parts to break up all the robot-killing :D The game consists of 15 levels mixing indoor and outdoor areas. You're forced to do tests for an unknown robotic mastermind. As you go through the tests, you slowly unravel the story through log files of previous test subjects. Check out our new project, a survival horror\dark comedy game played with two protagonists in different timelines with a dynamic story that changes depending on your decisions. It's called Tainted Fate.
This is the SickBrick Demo for GNU/Linux using a simple wine wrapper! It contains 4 maps from the full version of the game. 3 indoor and 1 outdoor map and a couple of weapons. The order of maps is 1, 4, 6, 9 to give you a good taste of the game without spoiling content or story. This version is for GNU/Linux distributions that are DRI (direct rendering infrastructure) enabled.
Regarding Linux and the usage of Wine here is what the README that comes with the game has to say:
WHY ARE YOU USING WINE AND MONO?
In order to run the game we make use of Wine to kickstart our Mono Runtime wrapper which is used on Windows and Mac OSX. Once this is up and running you will find it should not be buggy or leak memory of any kind. Emphasis on the notion that this is not a hack but indeed a genuine attempt to bring SickBrick to Linux in a formidable way.
ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE A NATIVE PORT EVENTUALLY?
Yes. Before we go porting the engine to the various popular Linux distro's we want to test the market with this release. If this begins going someplace and Linux is the place to be we will put fourth the time needed to create a native port of ALL the underlying technology that powers SickBrick.
