HowTo / Notes


1. Preorder the game so you can get access to the alpha

2. Download & install the .exe

3. Install vcrun2005 using winetricks

4. Place an empty "hwreport.txt" in the /Overgrowth/Data/ folder

5. Enjoy

Wolfire Games has promised a native Linux client, so hopefully we'll see that soon!

At the current state, Overgrowth.exe seems to use 100% CPU on my PC. Please report if you've got the same problem.
