If you haven't read it already, there's a README file in the icculus
repository that gives you step-by-step instructions on how to compile
Aquaria. It's Debian/Ubuntu-oriented though, i.e. you'll have to find
the names of the corresponding dependencies for OpenSUSE. [1]

You can start off by fetching the source, if you haven't done so already:
$ hg clone http://hg.icculus.org/icculus/aquaria
