Hold off on buying 'White Noise 2', currently broken on Linux

If you were interested in picking up 'White Noise 2' [Steam] from Milkstone Studios, you may want to hold off. It seems to be completely broken on any recent distribution.

I checked in on it, purchased it myself as it looked and sounded really fun, but it just doesn't work. The developers claim it works on Ubuntu 14.04, but it seems not many are having any luck, especially since that's two years old (which in Linux updates, is a long damn time). You can see the bug report here.

So yeah, hold off on it for now. Will update you if/when they manage to get it working properly.

When it works, I shall be playing it through a bit and giving it some thoughts. It hasn't worked since release on Linux, so I can't really say anything about it at all right now.

It is an Early Access title, so this is a reasonable time for issues such as this to happen. I am sure they will figure it out. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

FTL has stopped working on Linux recently too. Might want to give it at try and warn everyone if you can confirm that it isn't working for you either.

You can fix FTL yourself. You just need to manually upgrade the sound library it uses. I don't recall what it's called, but that should be easy to find.

I'm on Arch. Just installed the latest available patch on Steam and launched it. Didn't need to do anything else.

Devoured people. I blame you, Liam. I'm a pacifist at heart. =D

Hi! There's an option to run the game using native libraries instead of the ones bundled with Steam (which were the problem to begin with). With that, it should run one way or another.
