Reddit - Sun, 2017-02-19 02:30

Download now!
I used my friend's computer to compile the latest build of Relic Hunters Zero. Its a free and open source game that is available for free on Steam for Windows and Mac.
This build is for linux users compiled through YYC and Ubuntu-Server 16.04.2. On conversion, it works with an up-to-date Arch Linux as well. It is untested on other distributions though.
I'll try and fix any linux-only issues but other issues should be reported upstream at: Github
Known issues:

  • Weird Rainbow-border to right side of screen and full display not occupied in Arch Linux.

Hope you find it fun,
