What works

Installation, animation, sound and graphics, game play, save and load game.

What does not

  • Dialogs appear in pink block without any text. The workaround is to press 'Y' to confirm and possibly Enter or 'N' to cancel.
  • Action button click does not show full choices, unless slight mouse movement at the time of mouse click with very specific timing (takes a while to make it work.)
  • There are very rare instances where characters may become invisible (in the border house with people who are sitting on the sofa) but not interferes with the game play (the cursor shows that the persons are there.)


What was not tested

Didn't finish the game.

Additional Comments

wine 1.9.21 solved the invisible or misplaced character. Now I can finally move beyond finding Cortez in the art gallery! As mentioned above, the action menu choices don't appear easily when mouse clicked, but it takes some persistence by slightly moving the mouse as you click (it takes about 5 or more tries for me.) That bumps the rating from bronze to silver since I can now continue playing the game with some persistence.
