Report article RSS Feed Hairy Tales now available on Linux through Desura!

Our puzzle/strategy game Hairy Tales is now available with native support on Linux!

Posted by Arges on May 13th, 2013

A few months back we asked the Linux community about porting Hairy Tales to Linux, and got a very good response.  I'm happy to announce that we now have native support of Hairy Tales for Linux available through Desura!

Inspired by ChuChu Rocket and Lemmings, Hairy Tales is a puzzle/action game which combines tile-dragging mechanics with puzzles that have been called "fiendishly difficult" and allow players to come up with their own solutions. You don't have direct control over the Hairys, but instead direct them by altering their environment to help them avoid dangers, lead them to power ups, and deal with enemies and powerful bosses.

 It has received excellent reviews, and has a Metacritic score of 81.  Enjoy!

Hi booman,

It was out on Windows and OSX as well, but it's not until now that we've directly supported Linux. I'm very curious about how it'll do on the platform.

Cheers!

As an update, hero1900 commented on the main page that it was only that the files hadn't been fully extracted.
