Jamestown: Legend Of The Lost Colony is a neo-classical top-down shooter for up to 4 players, set on 17th-century British Colonial Mars. It features all the intensity, depth, and lovingly handcrafted pixels of a classic arcade shooter, with a modern twist: deeply-integrated cooperative gameplay. Unlike most top-down shooters, which give multiple players a shared pool of lives or continues, Jamestown does something different. So long as any player survives, the team can be brought back from death. By giving every player the power to rescue their team from the jaws of destruction, Jamestown creates an exhilarating cooperative experience where everyone’s contribution truly matters. Win or lose, your team will do it together.

64-bit executable non-functional, but 32-bit works fine. Need to populate libsteam_api.so into x86 folder; it is included in Archives/Software/Linux/Libs. After this, just modify the main launcher script to always run the 32-bit binary.

Also delete the bundled version of libopenal.so.1 to fix sound issues.
