Can't complain too much though. I only consider this 35 cents of the 2.35 I spent for the bundle.

Ah, more of that Uber Original combat that we just can't get enough of.

How do I add this to my library when I'm in Linux? There's one install button but that of course doesn't work but how can I add it?

For now, go to Software.opensuse.org and get it form there. Be aware that the installer often crashes while downloading, so it's in your best interest to locate the torrent (usually .local/share/data/SpicyHorse/akaneiro/game.torrent) it uses, and start that with another torrent program (save the downloaded data to .local/share/data/SpicyHorse/akaneiro/game_data)

Yeah. So. I sincerely hope that Spicy Horse is cognizant that we'd like a more mature method of installing our Desura games. This is fine for the beta, but for a released product? Besides, who uses Opensuse anymore ^_^

Hm, is there an ETA for the Linux version or is it a mistake that Linux is listed under supported platforms?

Dull and uninteresting, this is just an uninspired Diablo-like slog that gives the player no incentive to play. The Feudal Japan aesthetic feels tacked-on. I played 45 minutes, decided it was boring, then uninstalled it. I've played several Diablo style games in the past, this was by far the worst one. As far as the plot, it was just "go take jobs to kill monsters over and over," with no indication that this would change since the town was pretty much just a game hub full of vendors. Also, having…
