Linux port is now available

Hi everyone,

The linux port of By Any Means Necessary is now available. I hope the Linux gamers enjoy it. As part of the Linux lunch, By Any Means Necessary is 66% off of its regular price until March 24th.

I would like to thank the people at r/Linux_Gaming for helping me test the game in various Linux flavors.

I will now move to other features some players have requested, as well as ports to other platforms.

I would appreciate any feedback you guys may have.

Linux port almost ready

Hi everyone,

For the last couple of months I've been working on the Linux port of By Any Means Necessary. Testing is almost done and I hope to release the port in the next couple of days. After that is done, I'll come back to the suggestions you guys have made and work to implement them. I also have some content I want to add to improve the game.

I'll keep everybody posted.

About This Game

During the first world war, a mysterious portal appeared at the top of the mountain of Rondo. Monsters were crawled out of this portal and started attacking all the humans, from all nations. The nations put aside their differences and entered a covenant, with the hope of finding and destroying the source of this portal.

Captain Yusef Athros, from the Sylon empire, has been exploring the Castian Sea, and has just received an order to head to Lavinan Island. What will captain Yusef find in this island?

By Any Means Necessary is a 2D Turn-based RPG.
