  • Find and use different weapons to destroy all the enemies and take advantage of melee attacks on dazed opponents
  • Amazing colorful 3D graphic with cartoon shader in very distinct 3D art style
  • Original interact system with elements by aiming with weapons or the device called the Activator

2 reviews from Italian sites:
If you like the kind of cooperative action puzzle game, and you are not afraid of difficult titles, keep it in serious consideration, because it is worth playing and a because it's not a genre rich of releases.”
7.8/10 – Multiplayer.it

Hi RazZziel.. Tks for the comment, this is our first game for Linux (UBUNTU) and we are learning a lot and, of course, we are making errors because, let's be honest, we don't have that much experience with this OS (I used Ubuntu since v.11 but only as casual user...).
BUT we want to improve, of course.
The minimum specs as told in the news/dw details is Ubuntu 14.04.1 but we would like to have the game also on other Linux-distros - other people are trying and, beside a bug with an Nvidia lib, it seems to work.

Can you be more precise about your problem? Do you a experience with linux and can tell us where to look at? Maybe it's clear for a pro, but not for us. ;) (at least, right now...).
Is it about the Debian package manager?
I'm searching for answers right now and maybe I will find but maybe you can tell me the right direction ;)

Hi, thanks for the follow up! I'm no pro at all :) just found an specific problem with the game on my system.

In my previous comment I pasted a log of the actual error (http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=tf6ki9E5)

> SystemError: W:Unable to read /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ - DirectoryExists (2: No such file or directory), W:Unable to read /etc/apt/sources.list - RealFileExists (2: No such file or directory), E:Could not open file /var/lib/dpkg/status - open (2: No such file or directory), E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

In short, apt_pkg.so complains that the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/, /etc/apt/sources.list and /var/lib/dpkg/status paths don't exist, and the game seems to abort.

These paths only exist on Debian-based distros (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc, anything with apt-get), so any other distro (ArchLinux in my case, Fedora, OpenSuse, etc) won't have those paths, so the game will probably fail there as well. It's cool that the game checks to install its own dependencies, but a) it should be done only if the distro supports it, and ignore (instead of aborting) otherwise! and b) I think it would actually be better to pack all dependencies with the game (which is what I try to do at portablelinuxgames.org)

Which dependencies are you trying to install with apt_pkg? Maybe it just lacks an try/catch.

If you want to discuss further, please contact me at tux~AT~portablelinuxgames.org :) I'm also very interested to know how you pack Python apps in a portable way

Ehi cool! TKS! ^_^
I'm not the coder, this time, so I can't answer but of course I will tell Alessio (the coder) about your answer. ;)
Tks for the SUPER FAST replay with all the details, I really appreciate!

Seems just as fake as this review. http://steamcommunity.com/id/DH117/recommended/324390/

Not to mention the Dev is a arsehole who deletes negative reviews on steam and reply's with stupid **** like this.

This is a really promising game. The genre is new and refreshing and I don't remember an indie studio that approached the puzzle genre this way before. That's something that need to be encouraged. I played and finished the game more than once. It's still in the early stages, pretty short but bug free. Let's say that at the time I'm writing, this alpha seems to be just a hint of what will be but the mechanics are there and that's what I'm exicited for. Also, the graphic style is really cool. Hope…
