Also, note that the .exe will NOT work under Ubuntu Linux, you need to either use the version you will find in your application store, or the version available for download at Redeclipse.net

It was really popular among Linux gamers until Steam came out for Linux; I haven't played it much since then myself.

This game... if only more people played it. This game has the basis for an amazing competitive game, and is fun. Plus, casual play is actually possible and fun. Just needs more popularity and it'd go places.
