play Hexagon! and how to get wine 1.3 on Debian squeeze

Everyone, play Hexagon!  (and get wine 1.3 on Debian squeeze)
A great new free game by Terry Cavanagh of VVVVVV fame.

in the browser: distractionware.com/games/flash/hexagon/
exe zip: www.glorioustrainwrecks.com/node/2528
exe zip direct link: ai.ki/hexagon

This game appears #4 on google:hexagon; it’s pretty good.
Terry is developing “Super Hexagon” which will be even more challenging.

Hexagon on Linux?  It runs well in the browser with flash, but only from Terry’s website.
The exe version runs under wine 1.3 on PC Linux.

For Debian stable users (like me), try my “installer”:

wget http://sam.nipl.net/b/wine-debian-squeeze
chmod +x wine-debian-squeeze
./wine-debian-squeeze

    Super Hexagon has been released http://superhexagon.com/, but sadly not for Linux, nor even PC or web, but only on iPhone and iPad so far! Let’s hope Terry will support a portable PC version in the near future. I would almost betray my convictions and buy an Apple device to play this game…

      I am in a haughty mood, so I am going to give you a bit of tough love.

      How did you figure it is going to install wine on your machine, without root permissions?!
