You should be able to just run ./daemon to run the game.

Make sure you extract the linux64.zip. Further, the .nexe files are not windows executables, they are NaCl executables, which are platform agnostic.

Why does unpacking still have to be a problem, even with Universal ZIP?

Is fixing it really that difficult? Don't pack binaries into nested archives, have daemon read "/proc/self/exe" or whatever stuff used to determine executable location on Windows, and search the directory for packages...

Like here... http://pastebin.com/SfamPKza

Shouldn't be very hard for developers who managed to embed PNaCl that has no public API docs...

There can be only one explanation... the Global Government is real! The "open" source common sense removal is real! Please resist!
