Installation via Steam, run the game, play the game
What does not
Flickering mouse and screen problems, the mouse can seem confined to a small area in the menu and the game, low performanc and significant graphical corruption although this may be due to my using a radeon hd6870 with a driver that says it's not supported (fglrx 10.12).
What was not tested
Extended play due to performance issues and other bugs
Needed to disable GLSL in regedit before it would work. This game is close to working very well, some dedicated effort could make it gold / platinum I think.
