I've been waiting for the Linux version of Contraption Maker, so that's very welcome. And 140 is an excellent rhythm platformer.

.....

Indeed, a completely messed up build. Seems to insist in finding its 64bit libraries under /usr/lib. But this is the libraries that come with the game, so I could get it to start moving ContraptionMaker/lib out of the way so that it uses my system libraries instead.
It then spits out thousands of errors that it cannot find assets/data/defaults.data (indeed not there) and finally dies with
OpenGL version too old: OpenGL 1.5 or higher is required (your version is 1.4 (2.1.2 NVIDIA 340.76)). Please upgrade the driver of your video card.
Very funny. This is the latest driver for my card.

So f.... this game.

Oh, and look at that. It uncompresses the whole game data in $HOME/.config/spotkincm:
snoopy:~% du -hs /home/pit/.config/spotkincm
494M    /home/pit/.config/spotkincm


I rather stop here, else I start getting really unpolite.

@Pit for me, that directory is fairly small.

$ du -hs ~/.config/spotkincm
248K /home/poz/.config/spotkincm

=EDIT=

I downloaded a few user inventions, and now it's 1.9 MB. However, I think it's reasonable enough for devs to put this kind of file there, isn't it? Perhaps better in a cache directory, but this isn't horrible, IMO.

Humble Bundle page says Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams will be available for Mac and Linux later this year.
They did not need to change the text... ;)
