Irukandji GNU/Linux port was recently released by Charlie Games.
Irukandji is a score underwater shooter with flashy graphics, many enemies, bosses, weapons, ships, challenges and much more !

Charlie Games have an unique “donation – pay as you want” program for some of their games…
Irukandji costs 1USD or more – pay as you see fit !
I think it’s an interesting idea and it would be interesting to see if it pays off.

Irukandji is a fun score attack shooter, set in an abstract underwater trench. You fly your ship against the flow of hundreds of amazing procedurally animated sea monsters, blasting your way to the final showdown – a Giant Enemy Crab!
As you play, you unlock a variety of different ships each with its own unique weaponry and play style which offers a different way to play the game. There are also 10 challenging achievements to attempt, and online scores for each ship.

* Cool procedurally animated sea monsters!
* 6 unique ships to unlock
* Score attack gameplay
* Online scores for each ship
* 10 challenging achievements
* Giant enemy Crab!

    Any idea how to enable sound on Ubuntu 9.10? I bet it’s pulse audio related 🙁 If the sound was working I would probably invest the spare change I still have in my Paypal account 😉

  2. Maxim Bardin says:

    I think you are correct.
    Pulse Audio is the first thing I remove after any Ubuntu installation, it’s so buggy that I wonder why they even put it in Ubuntu by default.
    Other then that, if you are using a 64-bit Ubuntu, I would kill npviewer.bin process before starting the game as it also could case problems.
    After doing that, you should be fine – the music is very cool.

    Didn’t have any problems with 64-bit Kubuntu, it works and looks good, but it’s not my cup of tea.

  4. Hamish Wilson says:

    I have not had any problems with Pulse Audio on my Fedora systems, though I have heard that it currently runs worse on Ubuntu. Hopefully a fix is coming, yes?

  5. Dave says:

    It’s a great game. I paid $5 from a linux site. But I got it for all blatforms.

    If anyone’s interested, I got it here:
