Hey, thanks for checking this post!

 Zeitmeister the Timeskeeper is my and my friend Sklaiser third game made, and our entry for the Game Plus Jam 2018, being made under 72 hours. The jam's theme was "Time", and it was a bit hard to think of something cool at first. After some time we agreed on making a game were you play as the Zeitmeister, a being that protects the TimeMesh, defending it against Temporal Abominations, enemies such as robot cavemans and knights with guns. On the gameplay style, we took inspiration from the top view stages in Contra 3, and used a Arcade Style gameplay since the time was small.

 Please notice that the game isn't extremely polished: we tried to do our current best under the time limi, and to be sincere I believe we did great considering this is our third game. Anyway, please consider leaving us some feedback: it will be much appreciated, and it will help us make better games in the future.

 You can play the game here:

 And below are some screenshots of the game.

There is no game in the the rar to run for LINUX!!!!

 Hey MrPete, did you try giving executable permissions to the binary ( the zeitmeister-linux.x86_64 file )?

No.  Because it is recieved as a RAR file....

I think you need to distinguished between the versions....

Hm, just tested here, worked fine. Here are the steps:

  1. Download the .rar for Linux;
  2. Extract the .rar. You'll have two files: zeitmeister-linux.pck and zeitmeister-linux.x86_64;
  3. Give executable permissions to the second file;
  4. Run it.

Could you please try again?

Will do. But the original rar file has no files included????

 I'm sorry, but that can't be: I downloaded the original Linux rar and it worked fine.

I'll check it again on your behalf. :)

 Thanks mrpete! Really glad you managed to play it and liked what you saw. Not sure if it was your problem, but in Linux urar is needed to extract files from a .rar. I'll be sure to be more cautious in the installing instructions in the future. Also, thanks for pointing out you had no problems running the game!
