A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Food Chain Farm is a casual ecosystem building game, set in space!

Help Xlorp, a young alien boy, taking care of a real living human being! How do you keep it alive? How do you grow human food in space? And what to do with all the waste?

Construct a support ecosystem and try to meet your human’s needs. Construct pipes to feed CO₂ and fertilizer to your plants. Bring oxygen and food to your animals. Keep your human happy by baking delicious cakes! Earn points, buy upgrades, give your human pet everything it needs, until it's finally grown up and ready to leave your caring embrace.

Recycle every molecule. Carefully manage flows in your ecosystem. Go on a voyage of learning, and discover how nitrogen and carbon fit in the cycle of life. You can even take a look in the inner workings of the human body in one of the bonus scenarios!

This game is based on scientifically correct chemistry. The game is developed by Helixsoft.nl, a part-time solo developer, on a mission to show that games can be science-based and fun at the same time!

During this early development phase, you can get this brilliant game on a name-your-own-price basis. If you donate $5.00 or above, you will be entitled to a free upgrade to the full  game, once it's finished.

I use a 32 bit Linux system. 

Do you have anything that might work for me?

Unfortunately I can't help you. The software bundle is based on electron, and electron has discontinued 32-bit Linux support since 2019. https://www.electronjs.org/blog/linux-32bit-support. Sorry.

Do we ask the mafia for their opinion? 

Some important Linux distributors offer 32 bit Linux systems; for example MX-Linux (Debian), Salix (Slackware), Mageia (Mandriva), Puppy Linux.

Nice game - good job making learning about bio dynamics fun and humorous :)
