For anybody who hasn't spotted it, Skygoblin have a dev blog up on their website which covers some The Journey Down Chapter 2 stuff, which is currently in what they're calling a "balpha" testing phase.

According to the changelog I get in the Desura client, it added "support for older Linux distributions, running glibc 2.13 or newer (e.g. Ubuntu 11.04, Ubuntu 11.10, Linux Mint 12)."

Truly an epic Indie, point 'n' click game! I loved it, and i love the uniqueness of it, and ofc the voice acting rocks! I recommend this to all point 'n' click players out there! And for those new to the genre, this is a good first. Funny dialogue that is all ;)

I did a PlayDB video of this game, check it out if you want to see before you buy it.

Hey berarama! The 32-bit build is libc 2.13 compatible so if your system is 32-bit you shouldn't have a problem. Unfortunately we haven't yet been able to make a 64-bit build that is libc 2.13 compatible, but it's on our todo list after we launch on iOS this week!
