I was wondering if Histacom can be installed on Ubuntu. And if it can instructions would be appreciated. I've only found a megaupload link (which prove to be quite useless these days).

Histacom has recently been uploaded to Indiedb and is currently the 13th most popular game there out of almost 8,000.

The indiedb version only requires 1 dependency which is the Microsoft .net 4.5 framework,
