Available for purchase from Steam.
The campaign modus works. The sound and graphics are almost flawless.
just follow howto for installation.
What does not
You cannot see towers and enemies, see notes, comments and bugreport.
With deleting the shader files you can at least switch to symbolic graphics.
What was not tested
Most of the game play.
I used Arch AUR package bin32-wine-suse. Refer to ArchLinux wine and steam guide for proper installation.
