A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

You are summoned by the king to help his people against the hordes of orcs and goblins who are growing by the day. You approach the castle’s gate and… wait, that was not supposed to happen. You are now in control of the Knight, a character with a mind of his own. He has realized that he is living inside a game and wants to escape before the System exterminates him. Work with the Knight in order to finally achieve his freedom before he is wiped off of the game forever.

Arend is a fantasy 2.5D role-playing game developed for the Video game Design and Programming
course at the Politecnico di Milano.

I use MX-15 Debian Jessie 32 bit.

Will the game work with my OS?

Hello guys! :)
I tried to test the game but it crashed as I clicked on the OKAY button right at the beginning of the game, right after the introductory text! 

I'm sad D:

as the others said, skill sometimes didn't work. Graphics and mechanics were really nice, and i loved the animations too! Unfortunately it was a bit short, but i realize it's a prototype so i'm looking forward for the final product!

I liked it, the graphics were nice.  I like this type of style.  What I don't understand is why the skills work sometimes and not others.  They don't respond very quickly to me.   I died but still had fun till then.

Same here. Same impressions, skills not so precise... not always working
In addition: very nice graphics but still it is necessary to introduce audio/video settings, sure u will introduce them! 

Great work!
