Desktop edition includes: Enhanced full stereo chip tunes to nod along too, Unlock-able challenge islands, Offline local storage and Enhanced full screen display features! It also includes a full standalone PC installer and Mac App version. Includes 'The Making of Reprisal', a 38 page digital book charting the highs and lows of over a years development! ★★ ★★

I would buy this, but it uses Adobe Air, which is no longer supported on Linux. Is there any other possible method of delivery for Linux users? I love the web version and I want to support you guys, but I'm not going to pay for a game I can't play.

It is a shame that adobe have stopped supporting it. The linux version has been compiled using Air 2.6, the last version of Air adobe made for linux. Are you having problems getting that to run? When you mention a standard flash player do you mean for a web browser / SWF file? Any ideas are welcomed and we can make some test builds :D

The trouble with that version of Air 2.6 is that it requires an older version of Gnome Keyring or KDE wallet to authenticate root access, neither of which I can get access to since I use elementaryOS.

I think Lone Survivor did it through a standard .swf file that ran in a standalone player window, so something like that would be great. I don't know if the player was the standard flash player or something Jasper Byrne wrote himself, but you guys probably have more of an idea about that as flash developers.

The Linux version of Lone Survivor sucks because in fullscreen you don't have keyboard input. I don't have such problems in any game released as AIR package (for example Cardinal Quest, Cardinal Quest 2, Reprisal and Anodyne).

There is a guide for installing Adobe AIR 2.6 on Ubuntu which worked for me splendidly and for many others.

As I said, I'm NOT running Ubuntu. I got the .deb, but because elementaryOS doesn't use Gnome Keyring, the installer throws and error and then fails.

You should look at the answer with the most votes as it has description about missing libgnome-keyring.

Why not deliver it in a standard flash player on Linux a la Lone Survivor? It's still very widely supported.

Just wanted to +1 gazornoplat's comment. Tried installing an older version of Adobe Air on Linux to play this game (purchased it 5 minutes ago) and the Air Installer doesn't even work.

Would love to be able to play Reprisal, since we've paid for it 'n' all.

A small update / patch has been released for all platforms fixing a bug with hero's which meant they died after attacking settlements regardless of how strong they were. Also the tilt-shift effect has been put back in for the 'Artistic' screen mode :D

If you didn't enjoy Populous in the first place then you won't be enjoying this either.
