So I launch the game, and the play game button is blacked out. Then, when I try to open the configuration to see if the solution is in there, lo and behold, the game crashes. I'm running Linux Mint x86 and I REQUIRE URGENT ASSISTANCE!!

I was having same problem. In my case this game was installed 2 times: 1st via package manager(Ubuntu) and 2nd via Desura. When I removed 1st installation game starts as expected.

Annnnd... hey! I see that v0.18 is available on the official site. Hmmm. Well, new impressions will need to be made, i guess. Do saves carry over or do I need to restart? Guess I'll find out now, huh? Not too worried about it, although my character DOES have a nice early set of magical gear....

Impressions so far: Awesome. Even thogh this isn't completed yet, it's extremely well done. Love the visuals (simple, but excellent rendered) and the fact that you don't gain levels without a bit of work. I also love that enemies will chase after you (fun with spiders and skeletons? Sure, why not). It WOULD be nice to have a bank so gold isn't chopped in half when you die, though. The again, I guess not losing a piece of random good gear like in other games is a good thing...

Downloading this now. It reminds me of ShadowFlare and a few other iso action RPGs visually, so I'm looking forward to diving in and seeing what's what...
