2020-06-06 Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality

Today, I bought the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality with over 700 games and I have no idea about how to start exploring this. I’m actually expecting that I can’t play most of them as I don’t run Steam on this GNU/Linux box.

Any recommendations?

I tried Guppy and DreamingSarah. Guppy had an Ubuntu version, which didn’t run on my system because it couldn’t find libz. I installed wine and tried to run the Windows versions of both but they wouldn’t run and wine told me to install win32 which I can’t find – and I’m on an amd64 architecture. When I try to install the Debian package (even though I’m not on Debian) it tells me: “package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)” – and I cannot find an amd64 package, which makes sense, since 32 is in the name, I guess. All of this makes me very tired.

Next I tried Autumn which had a proper Debian package but it was made for an old version of LöVE and wouldn’t start because of some Lua errors.



Just going off of the ones I know, Quadrilateral Cowboy sounds like it would be right up your alley. It’s a first person puzzler about writing programs in order to hack and bypass security systems. Very fun, but also fairly short. Definitely one that leaves you wanting more.
