Linux users: read before buying.
The developer of this game is ignoring all posts about fixing the bugs associated with this game not launching for both 32 and 64 bit chipsets. However, some people have been able to get this game to actually work in Linux. If you're new to Linux and coding this will probably be a headache to debug. If you're comfortable with coding you might enjoy fixing this game.

Shouldn't be so hard to edit plain text... I would say: buy and do this:

Locate "run_harvest" under Steam
(for me: home/[user]/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Harvest Massive Encounter/)

and edit it to look like this (one may copy-paste this over the current text):

#dependencies required for game
#DEPENDENCIES=("libstdc++6" "libc6" "libgcc1" "libgtk2.0-0" "libvorbisfile3" "nvidia-cg-toolkit" "libjpeg62")
#INSTDIR="`dirname $0`" ; cd "${INSTDIR}" ; INSTDIR="`pwd`"
#check over the installed packages on this computer and build a list of the required ones
#for dep in "${DEPENDENCIES[@]}"
# if ! dpkg -l | grep -w "ii $dep "; then
# fi
#if there was some packages found, pass over to the install script to handle it
#if [ "$PKGSTOINSTALL" != "" ]; then
# exec xterm -e ./installscript.sh $PKGSTOINSTALL
# #everything fine, so run game here!
# export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${INSTDIR}/bin:~/.steam/bin
exec ./Harvest

All will be commented exept line "exec ./Harvest"

Remember to save ;)

Worked for me!

All differences between Linux and Win-versions are in Creative-mode: under Linux, I cannot spawn aliens ja there is no limitless money (if I remember correctly, under Windows there was no limit). Oh and there is also no those pointless extra buildings in Linux-version. ;)

Another problem with the Linux version is that you can't use creative mode. It lacks the menu that enabled you to send the aliens, so you can build stuff but can't actually get the aliens to come at you. Pretty pointless :(
