I'm an IT teacher (that does not mean God) and I have a class of kids (12-13y) who want to learn to code. Thanks to the supertux IRC I got to find Unknown Horizons and this project. The idea is that the kids will learn python by hacking on an actual game.
Currently got stuck, because fifechan does not build on this linux mint box at the moment, so, well take another breath then. Should I submit a report somewhere or is this a known issue ?
barry@MintBook ~/Code/fifechan $ cmake .

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:75 (message):

Make a separate folder for building and run CMake there:
mkdir _build; cd _build; cmake ..
Before that, cleanup:
rm -rf CMakeCache.txt CMakeFiles
