Project Gorgon releases an experimental launcher for Linux

Never forget.

There has never been an idea so offbeat and weird that the Project Gorgon team will not give it a shot. That does not simply extend to in-game mechanics, either. The game isn’t officially supported on Linux at the moment, but players have been hacking together ways to make it run, because the people who run Linux are also those who see “this doesn’t run on your operating system” as an entertaining challenge. So now there’s an official launcher for Linux.

Of course, it is important to note that this launcher is still in an experimental stage rather than a finished release state. Then again, for the people who run Linux that’s probably a feature rather than a failing. It’s good news for you if you prefer to run a Linux box or just for those happy to see the marvelous oddity of the game brought to a wider spectrum of players.

Tried it on Ubuntu but it doesn’t launch. Maybe fiddle with it later. The forum thread doesn’t give much in the way of troubleshooting advice.

I only use Linux as well; about 3 years now! I’m running OpenSUSE on the majority of my machines eagerly awaiting Solus Plasma.

I always fancied the Red Hat distros like Fedora or CentOS.

/insert obligatory reference to Second Life, that has supported Linux for years… along with Mac and Windows.
