You are part of an elite squad who freeze time to move near cover and get shot in the head.

I guess they didn't play their own game, because there are obvious flaws. This would have been more fun if they got rid of the whole moving around like an RPG. Like the old X-COM ga-- oh wait, the old games are just better. Why was this game made?

Chocolatey: babun
https://babun.github.io/

A customized Cygwin for Linux on Windows: Zsh, Bash, git and other Linux software, all pre-configured.

Can install other software provided by Cygwin.

  • 712, 774 - apparently abandoned, last updated 2016-05-02.

    • The main contributors are still alive, I see them posting on their Twitters.
    • I'll likely move to pure Cygwin, and get my common applications installed. That should be easy, but who the hell knows with Linux.

My configuration specific to Babun is currently scattered throughout my git repository, just findinall Babun (using my findinall() )
