Hi

I noticed that many years ago, Sleepless Software published a free version of this game for DOS, and you can still find it on other websites. Unfortunately, the Linux version of Inner Worlds was available on the original CD, but I think they never published as a free version for Linux users. I want to indicate that Kagi does not sell this game anymore:

I could not find a CD with the game, and it is really annoying because this game is the legend. It was published in 1996 for Linux, and I watched some videos from this game published on Youtube:

Here you can read about the history of this game, and first Linux gamers who purchased it in 1996:

I tried to run this game under Dosbox, but I really want to play, and finish it using the native version for Linux.I am pretty sure that I can still use old libraries in order to run this game on the modern distributions of Linux.

This is really the bad situation because this game is the legend which was published in 1996 for Linux.
I want to indicate that several producers had published games from 1991 to 1997:

- Abuse
- Doom
- Inner Worlds
- Quake
- SimCity

Unfortunately, Inner Worlds is the only exception that Linux users can not run on their favorite operating system.

Where can I buy it?

Maybe you'll find it at eBay/Amazon/second hand stores. There are places where people trade old games they have, you should ask around. Here, people usually ask to identify a game that they had played but forgot the title. I don't remember many users willing to trade or sell their old games here.

You could try posting at the game trading zone: http://gametz.com/

There might be other such sites, expect it to take some time though.
I looked around for it a bit, but only found the zipped free DOS version, no boxed versions.
