Hi, Pedro Mateus from LinuxGameCast here.

1 - It works after altering the execute permissions for the Haunt.x* file and renaming Haunt-1-Data to simply Data.

2 - Fuduntu 2013.2 32bit-PAE.

3 - There were a few graphical glitches see the screenshot -> (you can see the black textures regardless of the fog). Mouse sensitivity was WAY TO DAMN HIGH! and no option to tone it down.

Hi, finally managed to test it. First: wow, really great work, especially the ambiance, quite scary. No real problems noticed once ~/.config/unity3d/Madman/Haunt/prefs edited to disable some effects (HuD, black and white rendering).

Archlinux x86_64, AMD FX4100 @3.6GHz, nvidia GT630 2GB ram, dual-screens, 8GB RAM (PC12800 DDR3), kernel 3.8.6, nvidia 313.30-3 drivers, XMonad window manager (had to toggle float status of the Haunt window, else the windowed resolution value is not applied correctly). Smooth, except when indoor, where there is some occasionnal performance drop (I bet mainly because of my quite underpowered graphics card), uses around 40% of 2 cpu cores (doesn't seem to use more than two cores). No graphical glitches, no crash experienced so far, in an hour of gaming.

Really nice work, both graphically and musically, scary ambiance and a story quite captivating (once again, only played an hour). Keep up the good job, and thanks for the linux version.
