Pre-order demo, purchase required. From the news release, "The first playable release will include five main levels to introduce the player to time travel mechanics and several sandbox levels. The five main levels will typically take around one to two hours to complete, depending on the player's skill level, and the sandbox levels will allow countless hours of play."

What works

Installation, gameplay.

 In order to get it working, you need to:

  • Install the game (including OpenAL)
  • Copy $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program Files/Hazardous Software Achron Demo/Achron_LocalUserData to $HOME/Achron
  • (Recommended) Copy $HOME/Achron/low_end_graphics_example_configuration.ini to $HOME/Achron/configuration.ini
  • Install corefonts through winetricks (for arial).
  • Copy tahoma and lucida console ttf fonts (tahoma.ttf, tahomabd.ttf, lucon.ttf usually) to $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/Fonts
  • Open regedit, go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

 Add the following keys (might differ based on your ttf filenames):

"Tahoma (TrueType)" = "tahoma.ttf"


"Tahoma Bold (TrueType)" = "tahomabd.ttf"


"Lucida Console (TrueType)" = "lucon.ttf"

 I got 2-3x better fps in wine than with the same settings in windows.

What does not

Two thirds of the time, a map won't load (progressbar won't show up on loading screen). Restart the game and try again, it'll work eventually.

After completing a mission and loading the next, it spits out an error message (in-game) and drops you back to the menu.
