    Default The Dark Mod 2.0 Now A Complete Standalone Game

    Phoronix: The Dark Mod 2.0 Now A Complete Standalone Game

    The Dark Mod started out a few years ago as a Doom III mod and now with today's release of The Dark Mod 2.0 it's a standalone game that no longer depends upon Doom 3 assets. Finally we have a new standalone game on Linux powered by the id Tech 4 engine...

    I hope they bring their server back to life soon, I definitely do want to give this one a try.

    Thx Micheal for featuring it.
    It's great to see it's constant development for so many years.
    I'll definitely give it a try, as Thief was one of the best games ever
    Also it would be cool if it would be available via Steam (maybe for a small price to support developers).

    Sounds great but does it actually work under Linux? The reddit description talks only about “update.exe” and gives no mention of the platform.

    Yes it does.

    Also just loaded the site:
    Our servers are currently experiencing a heavy bandwidth hit. We're running this site in barebone mode now to offer basic functionality. We apologise for any inconvenience!

    It is already available from the AUR for us Arch users, although I had to modify the PKGBUILD as it was hard coded to look for "lib32-" libraries:
    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/thedarkmod/

    Unfortunately you still need to grab the game files yourself from the overloaded server though.

    Unfortunately no one is interested in rebuilding Thief's original missions in the dark mod, because of legal reasons
