Disc Room and the Disc Room Game Jam

I received Disc Room on Steam from participating in the Disc Room Game Jam. The game does not work out of the box on Fedora. It needs an older version of the libcurl library. I created a shell script to preload the proper version. I don’t know if the non-Steam downloads of Disc Room have the same problem.

pushd ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Disc\ Room
LD_PRELOAD="~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl.so.3" ./disc_room

The game is great. I highly recommend it even if I am currently stuck. I also recommend checking out the Disc Room Game Jam. It had many great interpretations on the theme. Some like my Pinball Disc Room are closer to the game concept than others. I wrote an article with some of my favorites.

If you are really ambitious, I recoded the example disc room from the game jam in Godot. It’s not exactly the same but can be used as a starting point. The Pinball Disc Room source code can also be found on github.
