What works

Installation appears to finish.
Sound using ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture).
Gameplay with a minor text glitch.

Overall, I think the game plays very well.

What does not

When launching the game, it states "Some errors where detected in your hardware configuration. This may result in unexpected behaviours. Do you want to launch the game anyway?"

It also states "Your videocard does not support some required features ( D3DFMT_R5G6B5 )."

In the game main menu, under "Options" > "Controls" > "Keyboard", there appears to be a glitch. The text for the keys on the keyboard corresponding to game actions are not displayed, however the mouse buttons are. Those key bindings appear to be changeable, and work in game, they just are not displayed in the "Keyboard" options. There is text hints/tutorials throughout the game, letting you know what keys to press. Some of that text is sometimes displayed incorrectly or missing.


What was not tested

All items in "Options".
Gameplay of entire demo.
