RUINER – Launch Trailer (Windows, Linux)

How to play the RUINER Linux Beta:

Just switch to the “Linux” branch and download the game. Easy!
(Hard? Navigate to the game’s Properties -> Betas and choose the relevant branch.)
We’ve hidden a cosmetic feature in the game for you, so keep looking for the tiniest easter egg ever.

There’s a sliiight chance you may experience performance issues. If you do, please install proprietary video drivers (NVIDIA, Radeon) or Mesa.
In case of video-related issues, install VLC 3 and its dependencies.
Also, make sure that all your drivers are proprietary and up to date.

Now, if you prefer gamepads over keyboard and mouse, you’ll need ds4drv for Dualshock or xboxdrv for Xbox controllers. Get those!

It should be all sunshine and rainbows from here.

Since you could encounter bugs, crashes or anything else wrong with the game. Just add a new thread on the RUINER Steam forum or email Reikon Games directly at [email protected]. Also make sure to write “[Linux]” at the beginning of the email subject line.

Steam and Humble release:

So if you or someone you love is looking to become a remorseless psychotic killer. RUINER is available now on Steam and Humble Store, priced at $19.99 USD.
