Description
(NOTE: This description does not contain movie spoilers. The game does not reference the real book)
An official movie licensed game available for Linux. Targeted to the casual gaming market. The price dropped from the original one listed in the TV ad. Also according to some, a promotional coupon, PBG-YVA-13, will get you another 50% off the Linux version.
This is advertised as 5 games in 1. There is a time management game, where Wesley must romance Buttercup (voiced by Robin Wright Penn) by doing everything shes asks. A puzzle and platform game where Princess Buttercup and The Dread Pirate Roberts must cooperate to escape through Fire Swamp. (note: this game is one player only). A trivia game where The Dread Pirate Roberts must engage in a battle of wits with Vizzini (voiced by Wallace Shawn). A hidden item and cooking game where Inigo (voiced by Mandy Patinkin) must find ingredients and mix potions for Miracle Max. And an item collection and assemble game where Fezzik and Inigo must gather assets to carry out The Dread Pirate Roberts' plan to storm the castle.

Yes, they list DirectX in the Linux requirements. Obviously these specs are suspect. Later increased specs to CPU at 1.5z, specified OpenGL OR DirectX under Linux, and specifically noted Integrated GPUs as supported.
