Freakout: Calamity TV Show now has a fix on Steam for Linux. Thanks work the continuing work of developer Immaterial Studio. There is a fix for the game on Steam.

Freakout: Calamity TV Show juicy top down old school shooter. Which we also announced for the Steam release.
However, when trying to run the game. It would crash right after the title screen. So I reached out Immaterial Studio for a fix. Who are also eager to work with the Linux community.

The fix for Freakout: Calamity TV Show on Linux:

  • Right-click on the game in you library
  • Select the Beta’s tab
  • From the drop down, select Debug
  • Install the game.

So from here gameplay should be as expected. Do note, the game defaults to keyboard controls. Therefore using a mouse in the chat screen is deceiving.
First, make sure everything works. So start the tutorial using the WASD keys to move around. Then use the arrow keys on the keyboard to shoot.
From here, you can also switch to a controller of your choice. The Dualshock 4 controller works wonders for your game. From here, enjoy a juicy top down dual stick shooter.
