We've had the chance to do some limited testing on Linux, however, we'd like to gather some more technical feedback from users before we consider a full release.
To this end, we've just made available a Linux demo build of Fear Equation, based on the most recent version (2.0.1). Here's the download link:DOWNLOAD FEAR EQUATION TECH DEMO - LINUX451MB TAR XZ archive, MD5: 2C4B20122E928764FC635937CBB40DA2
The technical demo has several limitations compared to the final game:
- The game will end after 14 in-game days.
- Blockade game mode is disabled.
- Custom games, including customised engineers and passengers, is disabled.
- Saving and loading is disabled.
- Only five, non-randomised fear types from a significantly larger pool.
While we're confident the game will run on a variety of Linux distributions, we can only officially support the game on Ubuntu 12.04.
Please post any feedback in this thread

for technical queries, and email@example.com
with general questions.
Whether you run into problems, or the game runs fine -- let us know either way!
