(.zip, 32-bits, Intel x86)

Alternatively, IntelOrca’s OpenLauncher can be used to automatically stay up-to-date with the latest OpenLoco release.

macOS users

As we are still working on reimplementing Locomotion in C++, we can only provide 32-bits builds. For this reason, we cannot provide native builds for macOS. However, the game can be run at full performance using Wine to run the Windows releases. Wine taps into Rosetta, which takes care of translating our Intel builds to Apple Silicon as well.

Linux and BSD

For Linux and BSD distributions, we currently do not provide any builds. CMake may be used to compile builds for your platform. Please refer to the README file on GitHub for details.
