Maybe some of the auxiliary parts like making it a tar file, one of the shell installer scripts, etc?

I actually downloaded it. It looks to be worth it just for the graphics alone. It's an amazing look.

The developers said the browser requirement was due to Adobe abandoning support for Linux .

prompted by your comments, i tried running the game in my Win 7 but there was an error. maybe someone well-versed in Linux gaming can forward an explanation.
