David Rosen created Black Shades for the uDevGame 2002 contest on idevgames. His original Readme (His Readme has proper game play instructions). And the Postmortem. Mr. Rosen's site for the original is here.

Black Shades for Linux is currently only available via SVN: svn co svn://svn.icculus.org/blackshades/trunk/ blackshades

A Gentoo ebuild is available which pulls the source from SVN.

Read our amusingly named (to fix the case sensitivity problem) readme, IF_THIS_IS_A_README_YOU_HAVE_WON

You will need OpenAL, and SDL. Send all diffs to zjs@zacharyjackslater.com.
