Google Drive is preventing the download of the Windows game archive, due to some rate limitation.

Could you please consider uploading it to itch.io CDN instead?

I understand the confusion, support for a lot of games from itch.io has been added to ./play.it lately, and all of our forum posts are based templates to allow me to not spend to much time on these (said templates are actually public, and can be seen here and here). I would love being able to spend more time on communication, but it would be even less time working with our developers…

To clear the confusion about our intentions, here is a description of what ./play.it really is and does: ./play.it: Installer for DRM-free commercial games

Let’s keep in mind that this is a software developed by hobbyists, there is no money involved (well, there is of course the costs of developing and hosting such a software, but this is done on personal funds), and no partnerships with either game developers or distributors. We post about it on game forums because this is the place people that might want to use such a tool already are, and because this is a way to let game developers know that we provide integration for their games on Linux.

Of course, ./play.it is of no use for people that do not already own a copy of the game they want to install. We only automate an integration process (adding menu entries and such to make the game easier to launch), but do not provide any data.

If after reading it you wish that we remove the support for your games, it’s OK, you only have to ask me and they will be deleted in the next update. If on the other hand you are OK with us advertising support for your games, I would be happy to re-open a thread about it ;)

The opening post links have been updated, following the silent deletion of the ./play.it thread in itch.io general forum.

A couple days ago, I posted a thread in this forum about an open-source software building native Linux packages from DRM-free games installer, to advertise the addition of the Cats are Liquid games to its collection of supported games. (I’m not linking to it this time, in case that was the issue)

I see this thread has been deleted, so I guess it was not welcome here? If that is the case, I would be happy to know what the issue was, to make sure we do not make the same error again ;)

That’s right, ./play.it is not required in any way to play Celeste on Linux ;)

Its purpose is to improve games integration with your system, by relying on the packages manager, using system libraries instead of the shipped ones, providing menu entries, etc. In the case of Celeste, the main upsides are:

  • using system-provided Mono runtime instead of the shipped ones
  • using system-provided SDL2 and PNG libraries instead of the shipped ones
  • work around terminfo Mono bug, cf. https://github.com/mono/mono/issues/6752
  • work around Mono unpredictable behaviour with non-US locales

The Linux version is available on gog.com too.

I hope it can be added here at some point.

For Linux users out there, ./play.it now has support for The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human.

For Linux users out there, ./play.it now has support for the itch.io version of Oxenfree.

It seems to work fine here (Debian Bullseye/Sid), using ./play.it to install it and apply required workarounds.

For a DRM-free lossless soundtrack, the one available on Bandcamp is probably the best way to support Supergiant Games: Pyre: Original Soundtrack

It might not be obvious (you need to read the fine print to notice it), but it actually comes with the soundtrack expansions The White Lute and The Black Mandolin.

It seems to be OK here.

The archive MD5 hash:

44e0fe30a9d8bcf73c4fa288dd4324ab  pyre-linux.zip

I use the command line tool unzip to extract the archive contents, with no issue to report. After the extraction, the game runs as expected.

Oh, I didn’t understand that it is only a temporary workaround, it makes more sense this way ;)

If I see no news on this front in a couple days, I’ll ping itch.io support to make sure they understand there are players waiting for it.

The current download link, based on Google Drive, has a lot of issues due to hit quotas, probably because of the recent inclusion of Fossil Echo in the current Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.

Could you please instead host a copy of the game installer on itch.io servers, to make sure it is reliably downloadable?
