I'm sorry to hear that.
Could you possibly elaborate a bit to help us fix this? Did the game not launch? Did you try launching from the Itch app or did you download and run locally? Did you try both the ncurses launcher and the pdcurses launcher? Which Linux distro are you on?
Due to the tight deadline of the jam we didn't have time to test very thoroughly, but we do expect it to run on Ubuntu >= 18.04 and derivatives like Mint 19, as well as Arch.
