I finally got around to finding time to try this out, but it doesn't want to work.

The 64-bit Linux version shows the window but it stays black without printing anything to stderr while the 32-bit version won't run because I lack the 32-bit version of

According to strace, it gets stuck at "ppoll([{fd=13, events=POLLIN}], 1, NULL, NULL, 8" but, since I don't know whether this is multi-threaded and strace isn't good with multi-threaded apps, I could be wrong.

I don't really have much experience with C or strace, but fd 13 seems to originate in "pipe2([13, 14], O_CLOEXEC) = 0" which would indicate that the program is stuck waiting for something to write into fd 14.

If it'd help, I can paste the full strace log somewhere.

Yeah 64bit does the exact same thing to me, in Lubuntu 12.10

There we go. Most of the symbols may have been stripped, but the ppoll() call it's hanging on is inside pa_mainloop_iterate() in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

In other words, the game is probably failing because I followed the recommended approach to disabling PulseAudio on Ubuntu-based distros. (Remove the daemon but leave libpulse because programs link against it)

(I don't need anything beyond the features ALSA dmix brings and PulseAudio has a LONG history of growing new 100% CPU consumption bugs every time they claim to have fixed the old ones I encountered... so I just gave up on it.)

Given that Skype 4 (but not 2.2) is the only other application I've run into which breaks when you "apt-get purge pulseaudio", and that it breaks by inducing a 10 second delay in audio, I'd say that means it's Super Office Stress's fault rather than mine.

It's a shame I was too late to buy this. It's an amazingly addictive game, despite repetitiveness. They don't make games like this anymore. I hope the devs. got a lot of money off of it, it's quite a treasure. Glad it's free now though. :)

It would be nice if things were explained, at all.

I don't understand how items work, and combat isn't explained.

Not to mention the premise isn't even glanced at...

Indievania supports the Pay What you Want payment model. When you click to buy the game, it has some radio buttons to select a price, or you can type in your own. For it to even be worth selling the game you have to make at least $1 off or Paypal takes most of it.

On The Super Office Stress website a dice it rolled and you pay a random number from $1-$6.

Desura you have to set the price outright, so he set it to $3, the halfway point of buying it direct.

I find it comical that a number of people won't pay more than $1 for an indie game. You spend more than a dollar on a soda or coffee that you will be drinking for maybe thirty minutes.

Why a random dice roll from $1-6?

Why not just set the price at 3 or 6 or whatever?

Actually I bought Trine 1, and 2 full price. Shank 1,2, super meatboy, and minecraft as well.

Just thought I would get a couple of laughs playing it.
I estimate i will get about 4 plays before i need to move to something else.
25 cents per play is not too cheap is it?

AAA titles like PAc-Man, and Donkey-kong are $0.25 per play. Seems like fair way to price "retro games?"

tl;dr - if you never played a jam game, this is your chance. Feed a dev and have a look at one of the most interesting concepts in the indie world - 48h games. Now, before you decide whether you're going to buy the game or not, or to rate it a 1 or a 10, there are two things you should know. 1. We're talking Sos Sosowski here. Like, you know: McPixel, Super Pig and so on. Google is your friend if you don't know those yet. Point is: don't expect sanity to touch this game even with a 5ft pole. 2…
