Prey for Linux Retail Now Available

December 7th, 2008 by TimeDoctor

Ryan “icculus” Gordon updated us with the news that 3D Realms and Human Head‘s portal crawling FPS Prey is now available for Linux users who own any version for Windows:

We have released the retail version of Prey for Linux. You will need our downloadable installer, a valid and unique CD key, and a copy of the game. You can use either the three CD-ROM version, the Collector’s Edition DVD-ROM, or a preinstalled copy of the Windows version, such as you would download from Steam.

There is no boxed version for Linux, but any existing Windows version of the game disc will work.

We have also updated the demo installer with fixes for all reported bugs.

Details and downloads are here.

    can’t buy the game with steam because it says that is not availiable for my country …. but other games like doom3 and prince of persia are on sale for Mexican IP’s… odd… i would buy from tuxgames since british online stores never had issues selling software to Mexico … but deliver time is huge … last time it took about 2 months for the CD to arrive, surely UK is a lot far then US that happen to be at 3hrs from where I am right now.

    Damn.. the CD-KEY I got there is 20 chars long, while the ingame cd key to type is only 18… it doesn’t work this cd key.. :(

  7. ThOR27 Says:

    Oh.. I fixed… It should have an edit option here… sorry for the spamming :(

    Install the game under wine
    Open the game the first time and activate it
    and then copy the file from .wine/drive_c/where/the/game/was/installed/base/preykey to ~/.prey/base/

    Know you can play ;)
