HED | Hacker Evolution Duality

Hacker Evolution Duality demo always segfaults even when you hit ESC and press `yes' to exit!

I had to start the game with strace to find out what the hell is wrong!

The game is totally inconsistent. Once it can not find the text file that should be displayed as your first message. Another time it does find it.  In addition, the game throws lots of error messages claiming that it can not run certain MP3 files. I do a $ gnome-open /path/to/mentioned/file.mp3 and it works like a charm.

The game also looks for many device files like:

/dev/js13
/dev/js14
/dev/js15
/dev/js16

Enjoy the map and the grid, I didn't even bother to make a score.

- keep the poor as they are or drive them poorer so that they have no opportunity (mind / health / time) to find out our crimes,
- shut the educated up by any means in order not to enlighten the poor about how bad, evil and corrupted we are,
- make allies with whomever supports, protects, grows / can support, protect, grow our interests,
- hide our crimes, if not possible claim t…
