Finally we released the DEMO for Linux Ubuntu:

The Body Changer LINUX DEMO v. 0.5.29

The demo is the updated version of the Windows one and contains:

  • THE ENTIRE FIRST LEVEL, Sector-01, where you can try the body changing system, fight some enemies and solve different puzzles with the aim mechanic and by using, of course, of different type of characters (the SynBs)
  • ONE OF THE ARENA MODES, that it's PURE ACTION in old arcade style where you need to survive and collection elements

The UBUNTU version runs smooth and well but please note that you NEED TO INSTALL THE libcg (Nvidia Cg core runtime library) and those are the MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:

  • OS: Ubuntu 14.04.1
  • Processor: Dual Core 3.0 GHz or equivalent processor
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: GeForce 9600 GT / Radeon HD 3850 or equivalent
  • Hard Drive: 1 GB available space
  • Sound Card: Any
  • Additional Notes: libcg (Nvidia Cg core runtime library) needed

With the new version on UBUNTU the game is on SALE (of course Win/Linux) for a limited time period so grab your copy now!

This week we had also a another nice letsPlay on Youtube, from MegGWolf that finally take some time on THE BODY CHANGER and found it very good - but see it by yourself :

Hi RazZziel.. Tks for the comment, this is our first game for Linux (UBUNTU) and we are learning a lot and, of course, we are making errors because, let's be honest, we don't have that much experience with this OS (I used Ubuntu since v.11 but only as casual user...).
BUT we want to improve, of course.
The minimum specs as told in the news/dw details is Ubuntu 14.04.1 but we would like to have the game also on other Linux-distros - other people are trying and, beside a bug with an Nvidia lib, it seems to work.

Can you be more precise about your problem? Do you a experience with linux and can tell us where to look at? Maybe it's clear for a pro, but not for us. ;) (at least, right now...).
Is it about the Debian package manager?
I'm searching for answers right now and maybe I will find but maybe you can tell me the right direction ;)

Hi, thanks for the follow up! I'm no pro at all :) just found an specific problem with the game on my system.

In my previous comment I pasted a log of the actual error (http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=tf6ki9E5)

> SystemError: W:Unable to read /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ - DirectoryExists (2: No such file or directory), W:Unable to read /etc/apt/sources.list - RealFileExists (2: No such file or directory), E:Could not open file /var/lib/dpkg/status - open (2: No such file or directory), E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

In short, apt_pkg.so complains that the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/, /etc/apt/sources.list and /var/lib/dpkg/status paths don't exist, and the game seems to abort.

These paths only exist on Debian-based distros (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc, anything with apt-get), so any other distro (ArchLinux in my case, Fedora, OpenSuse, etc) won't have those paths, so the game will probably fail there as well. It's cool that the game checks to install its own dependencies, but a) it should be done only if the distro supports it, and ignore (instead of aborting) otherwise! and b) I think it would actually be better to pack all dependencies with the game (which is what I try to do at portablelinuxgames.org)

Which dependencies are you trying to install with apt_pkg? Maybe it just lacks an try/catch.

If you want to discuss further, please contact me at tux~AT~portablelinuxgames.org :) I'm also very interested to know how you pack Python apps in a portable way

Ehi cool! TKS! ^_^
I'm not the coder, this time, so I can't answer but of course I will tell Alessio (the coder) about your answer. ;)
Tks for the SUPER FAST replay with all the details, I really appreciate!

Seems just as fake as this review. http://steamcommunity.com/id/DH117/recommended/324390/

Not to mention the Dev is a arsehole who deletes negative reviews on steam and reply's with stupid **** like this.

This is a really promising game. The genre is new and refreshing and I don't remember an indie studio that approached the puzzle genre this way before. That's something that need to be encouraged. I played and finished the game more than once. It's still in the early stages, pretty short but bug free. Let's say that at the time I'm writing, this alpha seems to be just a hint of what will be but the mechanics are there and that's what I'm exicited for. Also, the graphic style is really cool. Hope…
