"The early screenshots looked great and the story line was intriguing. I guess Dead Cyborg could be described as a first person adventure puzzle game "about the meaning of life... and death... in a rusty post-apocalyptic metal and concrete world." I love first person games: shooters, adventures, horror, puzzle... The game itself is available as a tarball of binaries or, it is said, one can run it in their browser. I didn't have much luck with that.

"Installation is easy, just unpack it. There is a readme with some important information, so read that. Interestingly, 32- and 64-bit versions are included in the one tarball as well as additional startup scripts for those using Pulseaudio and choices between fullscreen or windowed. I had to install Blender (it's developed in Blender) and soft link a libjpeg file (a hack most developers cringe at), but then it started and ran well."
