The upx option has been removed from pacman, so this package fails to build with the following error:

==> ERROR: options array contains unknown option '!upx'

That option should be removed. See https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=235637

Nice, they've ported it to SDL2 and also provide a native 64bit binary now.
Package is updated.

@Ichimonji10:
Got it, thanks.

@smls Eh, not quite. My example didn't make my point totally clear. My point is that lib32-alsa-plugins simply has no effect on whether the game runs correctly, and lib32-libpulse does. To put it another way:

lib32-libpulse uninstalled and lib32-alsa-plugins uninstalled: fail
lib32-libpulse uninstalled and lib32-alsa-plugins installed: fail
lib32-libpulse installed and lib32-alsa-plugins uninstalled: success
lib32-libpulse installed and lib32-alsa-plugins installed: success

@Ichimonji10

Wait, you had to *remove* the 'lib32-alsa-plugins' package to make the game work??

I thought it was *needed* for PulseAudio support in Alsa games.

Wondeful, thanks for the fix.

FYI, I had to do a little extra work before the program would launch sucessfully. In short:
# pacman -U proteus-hib-1.1.1_20130608-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz
$ proteus (immediate crash)
# pacman -Sy lib32-alsa-plugins
$ proteus (immediate crash)
# pacman -Rsn lib32-alsa-plugins && pacman -Sy lib32-libpulse
$ proteus (success)

This makes sense, as I have pulseaudio installed. Also, if I repeat the above procedure with thomaswasalone-hib, I get similar results -- just replace (immediate crash) with (no audio).

Ichimonji:

'lib32-glu' was missing from the dependency list; I've added it now.

If you still have problems after installing that, make sure your 32bit graphics stack is properly configured for OpenGL rendering.
To test this, install the package 'lib32-mesa-demos' and then run:

glxinfo32 | grep -E "direct |renderer"

It should say "direct rendering: Yes" and correctly identify your graphics card name next to "renderer string:".

Otherwise, consult the Arch wiki page of the graphics driver you're using for instruction how to set up 32bit support.

Also, note that the game's official system requirements is listed as 3+ GB of RAM and Intel HD 3000 or better graphics card.

Application launches sucessfully, but crashes upon starting a new game. Some diagnostics here: http://pastebin.com/PrxtTQue
