I played Flare a little bit this weekend and really liked it!
Sweet and Simple!
I'm going to try it in Linux too and see how well it runs.

Really enjoyed what i've played of this, reminds me quite a lot of the older action RPG's, great fun too. Nothing too complicated or trying too hard like most games nowadays, great job guys.
