Quoting: stanIncredipede works fine in Firefox. It’s pretty and original, but possibly tedious.

Defender’s Quest does not start.

Offspring Fling tried to use a non-existant « sensible-browser » command, but you can just open the swf in Firefox… It works but the keys cannot be remapped which is not ideal. Also it looks bad.

Neo Scavenger works… but it changes parts of my desktop background on other workspaces and also some parts of Offspring Fling (if I run the two games at the same time on different workspaces).

Anodyne wants to install Adobe AIR in /opt… not sure I want that.

No problem with Magical Diary and Planet Stronghold (ren'py games).

(Arch Linux 64 bit, nvidia blob)
Defender's Quest is in Adobe Air. Archwiki explains how to run such programs on Arch Linux here. Basically, install adobe-air-sdk, and run /opt/adobe-air-sdk/bin/adl -nodebug Air-app-directory/META-INF/AIR/application.xml Air-app-directory/
I actually uploaded AUR packages for Defender's Quest and its demo version a while ago. They are probably out of date though.
