Cyberpunk adventure Quadrilateral Cowboy goes 64bit on Linux

By - | Views: 27,196

The weekend is just about here and if you're stuck for something to do, why not try out the cyberpunk adventure Quadrilateral Cowboy with the latest update.

"Quadrilateral Cowboy is a single-player adventure in a cyberpunk world. Tread lightly through security systems with your hacking deck and grey-market equipment. With top-of-the-line hardware like this, it means just one thing: you answer only to the highest bidder."

What's interesting with the latest update, is that game porter and FNA creator Ethan Lee upgraded the game engine used for Linux and macOS to be 64bit on both. Quadrilateral Cowboy is actually open source too, with the code under the GPL as it's based on idTech4, otherwise known as the Doom 3 engine. Lee gave a shout out to the dhewm3 and RBDOOM-3-BFG projects "who did an excellent job with their 64-bit updates" which saved some time for the Quadrilateral Cowboy update.

Wonderful to see more Linux games get updated to continue working far into the future with all that 64bit goodness. Ports done by Ethan Lee are always great.

You can buy it on Humble Storeitch.io and Steam.

Got it on itch.io in that great bundle for racial justice. Couldn't get it to work on my Ubuntu 20.04 and gave up.

I’ve had it in my Humble wishlist for years, but it never went on sale, and there’s no demo either, so in the end I removed it from my wishlist.

Well, it's on sale now. As usual, I bought it on Itch.io for $15 (I added a $5 tip), only to discover, as morbius notes... I'd already bought it.

Honestly, I don't mind paying money for quality and I'm looking forward to playing this so I don't mind... in this case.

But why the hell does Itch allow you pay twice for content you already own??? It's just an awful concept. I was logged in, this is in my library, and yet Itch let's me pay for it again? What the hell are they thinking?

I think less of Itch for allowing this, even if, as I say, I don't mind in this particular case.

- Edit to add, I'm running Mint 20 which is based on Ubuntu 20.04 and it runs perfectly.

Quoting: EikeCan anyone recommend it?

I do, one of my favourite game.
Though be warned this is a cyberpunk puzzle, you will have to enter a few simple commands on a portable computer to solve puzzles, but the retro look (vinyl walkman and so on) is hilarious. It also features a rather interesting background story starring women.

Early supporter here so I don't think I've even tried Linux version.

Puzzle? Typing commands? Cyberpunk? 80s retro? Sold! :)

Probably another result of the big charity bundle itch did, that was so big they wanted people to add stuff manually to their library. Even so, on checkout it absolutely should check if you own it already. Maybe email them about it or post on their GitHub?
