Gemini Rue gets a fresh and up to date Linux port

By - | Views: 11,195

Wadjet Eye Games continue getting their older published titles upgraded for Linux, after doing the same for The Blackwell Bundle we now have a modern port of Gemini Rue for Linux.

"Azriel Odin, ex-assassin, arrives on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus. When things go horribly wrong, he can only seek help from the very criminals he used to work for.

Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a man called Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory. Without knowing where to turn or who to trust, he vows to escape before he loses his identity completely.

As fate brings these two closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy."

From the release notes:

  • Added proper LINUX and MAC ports with WORKING ACHIEVEMENTS!
  • If you want to revert the previous 2021 update use beta channel firstupdate, password is "gruegruegrue".
  • If you want to revert to the older geminirue, use beta channel original, password is geminirueold

This is on top of an upgrade in early 2021 that gave the game a big upgrade to a much newer version of Adventure Game Studio, so it should run better than ever.

Game Features:

  • Over 60 hand-drawn backgrounds
  • A moody, film noir atmosphere
  • Control both Azriel and Delta-Six
  • An innovative investigation system
  • A gripping sci-fi mystery
  • DVD-style commentary track

It's currently 70% off on both GOG and Steam.

Nice. Last night I went through my library to remove a bunch of "windows" tags from games. Looks like I need to do it again. Not complaining though.

Very nice. I played this so long ago I barely remember details but I know I did enjoy it despite not usually being into the genre. Nice graphics, a little on the short side looking at my playtime (5h, and I tend to get embarrassingly stuck on the easiest of puzzles). Definitely still recommend.

I wanted to do the opposite lately, for ports given up. :-/

I'm bit curious what the Windows tag is used for? I have been so far been just using the filter that hides Windows games.

I have a private tag for my library meaning "Windows only game". I guess that's it?

That's alright, there doesn't have to be deeper meaning. I do have my own set of tags too, like one for broken games.

This "proper" Linux port has the same problems as every AGS: wrong fullscreen resolution when using more than one monitor, and the game starts on the wrong monitor too. Those bugs have been around forever :(
It's a shame because the game is really great.
