Hi, i test your game at browser, i downloaded and tried to run it under Sparky Linux, but i cannot!

Do you have any suggestions on how to run it under Linux distro?

Thanks in advance!

p.s. Your game rocks! ;]

From my notes:

go to the directory where you unpacked the game, then type

sudo chmod +x FARA 
sudo chmod 4755 chrome-sandbox 
sudo chown root:root chrome-sandbox

after that you can start the game using 

./FARA

from there through the terminal. this may not work through your file-manager, but you can make a little script that will make it work. 

Again, from where you unpacked the game type:

echo ./FARA >./fara 
sudo chmod +x ./fara

There's no .desktop shipped with the game. If you know where these go on your system, perhaps ~/.local/share/applications/ as on my system, you could install it in the menu saving the following there as, say, fara.desktop:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.1
Type=Application
Name="FARA"
GenericName="Open World Roguelike Sandbox"
Comment="The Roguelike that tries to do too much :)"
Exec={customize}/FARA
Categories=Games

I just just bookmarked the path with my file-manager to make it work from there through the little script above and didn't actually test the .desktop file i conjured up for you.

Anyway, it works fine. Check my notes for things I've been researching about the world so I know what I'm doing the next time I play.

Enjoy!

thank you!
