Linux gamers can now easily play the classic fighting game 'Pray for Death' [GOG Link], as GOG have packaged it up with DOSBox.
Originally released in 1996, GOG only acquired it for their store this week. It's pleasing to see it get a day-1 Linux download!
GOG sent over a copy for me to check out and it works perfectly on Antergos thanks to DOSBox. I really do think it's fantastic to get old games easily packaged for us like this. Keeping classic games alive is important I think and even better to play it on a platform it was never designed for. You can of course take the files out and run it in your own install of DOSBox, but this makes it easy for people who just want to download and play.
- Three local multiplayer modes to choose from. Tournament, Double Death, and Final League will give an opportunity to challenge your friends!
- Choose between 10 different characters including mighty Cthulhu himself
- Master each warrior's special moves and combos
Warning: The control scheme is really quite terrible.
Did you ever play this when you were younger? If you plan on picking up a copy, let us know in the comments!
