New release fixes the fonts missing issue. Upstream package wasn't bundling them (it is now).

I can confirm what zorun says, I have the exact same issue.

The game only shows a black screen when starting (but there is music, though). When hitting the Escape key, it crashes with an ugly backtrace.

Maybe it's related to graphics drivers? I'm using an old Intel HD graphic card (i915 driver).

@Wuzzy Should be fixed.

It fails to compile, I get this error:
"TNL: Unsupported version of GCC (see tnlMethodDispatch.cpp)"

I have the gcc package installed with package version 5.2.0-2.

Package is orphaned, if you want, you can maintain it yourself.
