Hi guys! I hope development is still alive! Could you make packages for Fedora?

Hello toneymoon, thanks for your interest in Allacrost. Unfortunately, development is currently at a standstill because we've lost contact with the site owner, and other members of the team have not been active as of late. You should be able to get the program working on Fedora if you compile from source; feel free to post here if you need any help with that.

Unfortunately, no one has created a Fedora package for Allacrost, as none of our developers were Fedora users (though many of us ran other Linux distros.) Obviously, there's no timetable for that issue to be rectified unless someone on the Fedora side would like to package the game. While there is no active development, the current demo is fully playable and has a robust engine which others may wish to use to create their own games under the GPL, so there would be value in packaging it for a Linux distro. Additionally, if changes are needed to get the game running with newer libraries I'd be happy to do the necessary maintenance work.
