I can't run the Itch version of Hypnospace Outlaw in Linux. The Steam version runs fine. I'm using KDE neon User Edition 5.15 x86_64. I do have libnss3 and libnss3-dev installed.

Here's the error when I try to run it via the terminal:

robert@neon-it-up:~/Games/itch/hypnospace-outlaw/Hypnospace Outlaw_Linux32$ ./HypnOS
./HypnOS: error while loading shared libraries: libnss3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Here's the log when I try to run it through the Itch app:

will look into this ASAP after GDC. thanks for reporting!

Looks like the reason is pretty simple: the Steam version is 64-bit and the Itch version is 32-bit-only. Please fix this.

OH I see! The 64 bit version is uploaded. I switched Linux64 to be first, perhaps that'll help?
 

Yes, that fixed it. Thanks!

Weird - I could swear that there wasn't a 64-bit option when I first installed it, but I definitely could've just not noticed it. It's probably good to make the 64-version the default anyway because so few people use 32-bit Linux anymore.
