Background: I really like this game because the graphics are simple yet colorful, and because it teaches the player about how drug companies interfere with the market to prevent drugs from reaching poor countries, instead of simply being a flashy action game. I discovered it in 2007 and have always thought about it since. More information available at http://www.lesfleursdunormal.fr/static/ ... ex_en.html

Some screenshots if you are interested: http://www.lesfleursdunormal.fr/static/ ... ts_en.html

I picked the most recent .deb package from http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/p ... e/s/slune/. From there on, it was a matter of selecting the package in gdebi, and then downloading missing dependencies when needed from https://packages.ubuntu.com/. I also had to remove libcal3d12v5, and replaced it with the latest version of libcal3d12 (https://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/libcal3d12).

That's the short version of what I did, and if anyone gets stuck while trying to install, just feel free to reply to this. But everyone should play this game, it has a really warm feel.
