Hi dev, i just wanted to let you know that the linux version is downloadable using the download link but not inside of the itch client. Most likely because the game is still taged with windows / mac only. 

Sidenote  / your are mentioned here -> https://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/comments/94ryro/metanet_hunter_cd_a_sidesc... 

Doesn't work with Love v11.1 (current stable): 

Error: bad argument #1 to '?' (ImageData expected, got Image)

You'll want to use LOVE version 0.10.1, the most recent version available when Metanet Hunter CD was under development. Thanks again! The newest game will use the most recent version of LOVE, but that's another few months out.

Hi unknown78, thanks for bringing that fact up! I in fact did forget to check off the Linux version... being the Linux version, geez. That part should be solved, and I added some semi-clear directions in the installation instructions, too. It's really neat that someone put the game on reddit recently, but I can imagine that blowing up in my face. :p

Ok some more feedback.

Installation works now but it complains about a missing executable. So maybe you would like to provide a small sh script. On arch linux you find love 1.0 in the aur (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/love10/) .

After installing this you can currently start the game by just open the directory in a commandline and type love10 ./Metanet\ Hunter\ CD.love

Now comes the interesting question what is cd mode in the settings and does it work on linux ?
