The test build for linux works well and is quite fun.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry for my tone. I take freedom of speech and selective enforcement of subjective moral rules very seriously. Hopefully you treat intolerance towards minorities the same way you treat intolerance towards majorities and vice versa. Allow intolerance towards Clinton supporters if intolerance towards Trump supporters is allowed, etc.
If all intolerance and hatred is actively removed regardless of which demographic is being intolerant and which demographic is being targeted, I don't see hypocrisy there.
Is it possible to implement a system that publicly lists information about content that was removed and why? That would allow independent users to verify your claims that moderation based on content is rare.
Based on the games I currently see in the store, it appears that there is content that is intolerant of certain demographics while there is little content intolerant of others. This could just be that content creators with a certain political agenda are more prolific than others.
Seeing which content has been removed would be helpful in determining bias.
I wholeheartedly agree with you finalbossblues.
Itch.io had such great potential and fills a niche that is desperately needed. But this policy (and the use of the term "safe space") reeks of SJW propaganda. That niche has already been filled by existing marketplaces. What we need is a marketplace that is good for indie developers while also not playing morality police.
On a non-Ubuntu system (Gentoo) I was able to replicate this by doing the following:
Grab the file libstdc++6_7.2.0-1ubuntu1-16.04_amd64.deb from the repo manually.
Extract the deb by using deb2targz (or you can use the ar command)
Move the freshly extracted file ./usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6.0.24 to your deceiver directory
ln -s libstdc++.so.6.0.24 libstdc++.so.6
Execute the game by typing the following in the deceiver directory
Edit: Game launches, but gives a message about requiring the itch app.
Since we have to use the itch app, we should do the above in the itch dir for the game:
Put the libstdc++.so.6 symlink in that dir
Move the deceiver binary to deceiver.bin (or something)
mv deceiver deceiver.bin
Now make a shell script to set up the LD stuff and name it deceiver, and chmod it 755
And now it works!
