Excellent game you got here! Nicely polished, great artwork and character design, all in all, we’re having a great co-op time down the mine!

I know linux isn’t supported, but thought I’d mention how I got it working, just in case someone finds it useful:

  • Install Lutris from here
  • Install the Windows version of the itch client in Lutris
    At that point the game starts but only the music plays and the screen stays black
  • Follow the instructions here to install the Media Foundation workaround in the itch client Wine prefix.
  • Then I had to use xboxdrv to convert my PS3 controllers to XInput, but anyone with Xbox controllers can go straight in!

Oh, and almost forgot to ask, any chance of a native linux version?

Thanks for this! Super helpful. +1 for native Linux port. :)

A little update to say the Linux itch.io client now integrates Wine, so we don’t need the lutris/windows-client anymore (just a 64bit wineprefix and the media foundation workaround)
