Nominated as a IGF Seamus McNally Finalist, NightSky is an ambient action-puzzle game that offers a gameplay experience unlike any other, as cerebral challenges fill uniquely designed picturesque worlds. The player must maneuver a sphere by using realistic physics to advance; each of these worlds is broken into different areas. The original soundtrack by experimental jazz musician Chris Schlarb will further heighten the surreal experience.

IndieGames.com says: "NightSky does things with balls that you never thought possible, and is stunning in motion."

I bought this game on the Humble Indies Bundle #4 and I managed to have it on my account using the installed games wizard. Will it stay there?

I have the opposite problem. I bombs out at launch with ALSA pcm device and socket errors (I'm running Pulse) when I run the 64-bit version. I've not tried the 32-bit binary yet, but I'm about to try it...

32-bit binary also has problems, in that it requires libraries not provided by the ia32 library support package. I'd need to build a few 32-bit libraries to make it work. Very frustrating.

Ugh. Well, for the record, it works beautifully in Wine if you get fed up with fighting with a shameful port that was probably only sloppily written to qualify for the Humble Indie Bundle.

Flawlessly until a Wine update breaks it on me. At least I'll have some gameplay, though. Thanks for testing that and reporting back!

You could always use PlayOnLinux to set up a Wine prefix that'll stay on a specific version of Wine. (Among other things, PlayOnLinux can automate downloading specific versions of Wine and installing them inside folders in ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/)

I used it as an automated way to set up a Wine prefix for the copy of Legend of Grimrock I bought off GOG.com.

My only caution is that their "stable" release isn't always as stable as the "old" version your distro packages.
