GNU+Linux version?
Was wondering if there is a GNU+Linux version being considered by the devs.

Yes. For now, though, I believe it's playable with a Linux front-end of some sort. Do you want me to try to dig up a link?

I'm interested. You surely don't mean ScummVM, though?

I'm interested.

Holy crap, AGS. It's had a linux port for some time (since version 2.11 whenever that was) and it was open sourced in april of 2011 - here's the discussion where the dev warns of the horrible horrible code:
SixPairsOfFeet Jul 16, 2013 @ 6:16pm - this seems a little bit interesting, though not very encouraging in of itself

Here's a thread where we talked briefly about it, mostly linking to this site:

Let me know what more I can do to help!

(I haven't used *nix since my days of using pine and tin in the earlier years of the Internet, so I may not be of much practical use.)

I played one of their previous games, Resonance, natively in Linux following this guide:

So I am sure people are playing this game in Linux without WINE as well. This page seems to list it as playable with AGS:

AGS Linux install info is here:

Oh, and to Mr. Yohalem, +1 to a native Linux version ;) I would love to purchase and play the game on LInux!

Hope we can deliver soon.

I'm looking forward to it as well! :)

I just quickly tested the Windows demo version in Linux. It appears to work fine in windowed mode.

First I installed 'innoextract' so I could extract the .exe file:

Then I installed AGS following the guide here:

Running elementary OS, the game couldn't launch in full screen mode, so I launched it in windowed mode with this command:
ags Primordia.exe -windowed -gfxfilter StdScale4

Thanks for the help!

If you do release a proper Linux version I can do a post for you on not to mention buying it myself ;)
Mark Y.  [developer] Sep 3, 2013 @ 7:06am 
I'll make sure to let you know if it happens. :)

Sweet thank you!
