Linux and Stuff

Hi there! We've had a nagging feeling for a while that there was something we forgot to do, and this morning we realised what it was - we'd never officially announced that Binaries is available for Linux!

Thanks to the keen fans in this discussion we got a Linux build working a while back, and quietly made it available. Since nobody shouted about any major problems that they couldn't work around, we thought we should make it kind of official.

Now, if you read that discussion you'll see that we're a tiny dev and that our knowledge of Linux is very limited, so we've not had a lot of different configurations to test on, and even if we did come across issues we wouldn't really know the workarounds you might need to use.

And while we're announcing stuff...
We thought it might be worth mentioning that Binaries is now also available on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, in case you prefer playing this kind of game on a console (I don't know why you would, since the Steam version supports console controllers, but hey we're all friends here).

As always, if you enjoy Binaries we'd really love it if you left a Steam review - they're massively helpful for tiny developers like us.

(An Ant man. No, not that one.)

“Infuriating, but in a good way.. Really nicely polished”
Mike Bithell

“Beautifully tuned: each level is the exact translation of a developer’s manic cackle into game structure”
Electron Dance

“Seriously, I’ve never wanted to kick a developer in the shins before I played Binaries.”

About This Game

Test your skills and reflexes as you simultaneously guide two lovable(1) balls through over 100 controller-smashingly(2) tough platform challenges. Control both balls at exactly the same time as you try to avoid the death and danger that awaits their every move.

Oh, and there are jokes.(3)

(1) May not be lovable
(2) May not even be a word
(3) May not be funny


  • Make your way through over 100 levels of fiendish puzzle solving and death-defying challenges.
  • Glutton for punishment? Replay levels against the clock to get the fastest time you can. Are you quick enough to get S rank on every level? (We’re not.)
  • A funky adaptive music score that ramps up when you do well and chills out if you’re stuck, to help you concentrate. It’s like the game wants you to do well (while it’s throwing spikes at you).
  • Choose your own route to completion through a non-linear map. Stuck on a super-tough stage? No worries! Just go and hone your skills on a different level.
  • Laugh along with up to ten jokes! Look, we’re going to keep saying it's funny. You'll come around eventually. (Don’t worry there is no extra charge if you laugh more than ten times.)

No controllers were harmed in the making of this game.
