So I uploaded the game to Mega (YOU DO NOT need an account or paid to download the game, it is a direct link!)

Please read the EULA (End-user license agreement) before downloading the game. (It’s inside the folder too)

How to Install:
*Unzip the folder
*Play the game!

Compressed with 7zip an open source software.

Cool! Thank you for taking the time to do this - especially in being so thorough with the EULA. And to other people reading this thread who don’t already know, we on the “Mysterious Dev Team” are totally fine with people “pirating” this game. We just want as many people as possible to experience the story.

For the record, Agustín is looking into other distribution channels as we speak. But we have no time frame to go by, nor do we know if any of the services he currently has in mind might actually be interested in distributing it.

So your download is obviously a much faster way of satisfying Windows users who aren’t fans of Steam. So thanks again!

Hi there Frede, my intention wasn’t to promote the pirating of the game at all (hard to do it since it’s free and the EULA says that everyone can redistribute it, yes I read it before doing this post :stuck_out_tongue: )
I created this post because of one discussion in the kickstarter comment section about how steam uses DRM and that this is not a real drm-free game since it is only being share on steam (they wont play it for that reason) so I made this post for them.

Oh, I know - that was the reason I put “pirating” in quotation marks :slight_smile:

I’m glad those people will now get to the play the game. There have definitely been more than a few complaints. I myself have learned to live with Steam, but I can definitely understand those who don’t want to use it.

So, again, grateful that you’re doing this so people don’t have to wait till we get the game released through other channels.

I must admit I don’t use Steam or wish to, however I did install it on my laptop to get the game… which didn’t work, so I ended up digging around until I found Serena and moved it over to my main computer… and it worked fine, yeeeh!
I
I haven’t used Steam since it rejected my Half Life codes and had a hell of a time getting it sorted >:(

I must admit I’m all for more direct downloads, and I’d probably not bother if I have to install loads of sh*te that I’ll never use again first… its only because its Dagon and the community related that I did take the time tbh

After some time playing the game, i’ve pushed the button “ESC” on my keyboard, thinking i could find a menu to see if i could use the jewelry that the character took from the trunk, and the game suddenly crashed.

what are game’s keyboard control? how could i prevent it from crashing? I play on windows xp.

Esc quits the game. There is no menu.

Hello Chaps

I was surprised to see your game wasnt on indiedb, so ive added it, i also packed up the the game off steam like Gaston, and its ready to download off indiedb (EULA attached) as i dont have a point of contact for the developer and as it seems you guys support people sharing your hardwork, i hope you dont mind the download and game being listed here.

To the developers.
Its linked to the development group for asylum so you are free to manage it as you would with asylum.

Just sharing the indie love.

Regards
Aaron

Thank you, Aaron! I’ll be in touch with you via email soon :slight_smile:

Thank you very much for doing this! I absolutely refuse to install Steam on my PC, so being able to experience Serena without that bloated, resource-hogging, spyware-laded DRM garbage is an absolute dream come true! :slight_smile:

Would it be possible to also provide the Linux version on Indie DB?

It’s the plan, yes, though it’s a pain to distribute Linux builds without Steam :frowning:

There’s an update coming for Serena, so I might take the opportunity to compile it for Ubuntu. Remember that you can download the zip and attempt to compile Dagon manually :wink:

I did that, but I still need the data files. Thinking of it I could take them from the Windows version… I think I’ll give it a try :slight_smile:

Right, the game is distributed as a zip, so you can definitely do that! :slight_smile:

The key is to link libraries that differ between distributions or aren’t installed by default statically.
Here’s a script to compile such binaries on Ubuntu 14.04: https://gist.github.com/darealshinji/6a1ebd2dad17917bc585

Static libraries of libGLEW and libSDL2 have to be compiled manually (by default GLEW is not available as a static library and SDL2 has too many special dependencies).

edit: I’ve attached pre-built binaries.
