What works

Game runs stable and all game mechanics work.

What does not

There are many graphical glitches:

- Changing the brightness/contrast changes it for the whole desktop, and it stays after closing the game. Opening nvidia-settings resets it.

- Parts of the terrain are positioned at incorrect altitudes.

- Building doesn't progress as it should. Instead of "growing" individual parts of buildings suddenly appear.

- Shadows don't work.

While the game is technically playable, the broken terrain makes it a less joyful experience.


What was not tested

-Multiplayer, but that should work according to earlier tests.

-Custom maps

Additional Comments

Runs pretty fast on a Nvidia GTX 650 TI. Cutscenes with camera movement showed a big frame-drop.
