Make Linux support with Dosbox too

this game is playable in Linux (possibly on Mac OS too) if you can get Steam game files from Windows machine. Just login on friends Windows machine to your account, download the game, find and copy its files to your Linux/Mac machine and start it with Dosbox. Easy.

The question is - why we have to download it elsewhere? Can't someone (Valve?) add to Mac/Linux requirements "Dosbox installed" and just let us download on other OS too?

I hope some admin reads this discussions too...

Sooo... What is the problem with encapsulating dosbox executable with the game files and going out with it as Linux supported?

As I suggested earlier, it could even run from system Dosbox executable, so the only thing we need is dosbox.conf and game files...

So I ask again - how to accomplish this? Can I be of any help with this issue? I would help if I can.

BTW, here is free copy of the game: https://www.humblebundle.com/gift?key=a7NGZvDeXrkKRKS2 Whoever gets it, please write here, so others know that it was already redeemed.

+1 for Linux DosBox. There literally is no excuse for NOT providing it. 0% effort as Linux has DosBox support since inception.
