What're people's experiences with Gemini Rue so far?

It is good to see a bundle that doesn't require Steam.

I haven't played the release version yet, but I got it during the beta and really enjoyed the plot. Any bundle with Gemini Rue is a great bundle.

It's one of my favourite games :D

It's still got some audio issues by the looks of things, but I hear those are being worked on and there should be a new build (and a Steam build for anybody waiting for those) soon.

I watched the trailer for GR and it looked pretty cool, tempted to buy it but no money until Friday hmmm...

I got Gemini Rue during last year's Steam Holiday Sale. Haven't touched it yet because it wasn't available under Linux. Looks like this will finally change soon.

Hero Academy crashes upon start-up on my OpenSuse 13.1 with this log: http://pastebin.com/0cLrNHJ3

I couldn't find any official bugtracker where to report this.

On Arch Linux 64 bit, Intel HD Graphics 1st gen:
- Aaaaa and Jack Lumber work very well (I’m actually impressed, much better quality than most other game ports), but are not fun at all for me.
- Anomaly 2 doesn’t work and I had to reboot to get my system back. (Probably requires GL 3 or something.)
- Hero Academy doesn’t work either. (Black window.)
- Little Inferno was in a previous bundle already… It works but it’s not very fun.
- Gemini Rue is the only one that’s half fun. It runs but really needs a windowed mode and alt-tab support… (Especially with compton as a compositor I’m getting a partially transparent game window in fullscreen, so it doesn’t look that good…) Still I played it for 5 minutes and it seemed ok.

I'm hopeful that things in the build will be improved, but in the meantime, you can edit a config file to provide windowed mode (windowed by default was something I lobbied for during the beta). 

Open up ~/GeminiRue/acsetup.cfg and set windowed to 1

windowed=1

I also like upping the graphics scaling:

gfxfilter=StdScale3

Thanks! The config file was located in the game directory for me (I didn’t run the .sh to install the game but unzipped it, because I dislike installers… I wish all devs simply provided .tar.gz archives that are much more convenient, instead of wasting everybody’s time with those installers.)

It’s much better in windowed mode :). And I agree it’s really small with StdScale2.
