Instructions (Mac OS X):
Alarameth TD has been tested in a few of the most popular distros and desktop environments.
"Easy" DEB and RPM package installers are available, as is a simple gzipped folder of the game. Use whatever method you are most comfortable with.
Because each distro behaves differently, full step-by-step instructions for each method (DEB, RPM, and gzipped) are included in the Linux Support section. If you are new to Linux and installing programs is new territory for you, please find the instructions for your distro on that page - the instructions are for the full version, but the demo behaves the same way except that -demo is added to file names.
