The version acquired directly from Runic Games or Perfect World Entertainment, i.e. not Steam-connected.
This includes the demo, which is actually just an unlockable full version.
What does not
I have not been able to get anything to work yet. The Launcher seems to exit on me without showing a UI and once I got it installed (through a different VM and copied over) I was not able to play the game either as running Torchlight2.exe directly resulted in a crash.
What was not tested
Anything inside the game
Results may vary. I'm currently getting the latest source and recompiling to test if it makes any difference. Will submit a bug to Wine if it still doesn't work.

It appears the game doesn't always shut down properly. For the all versions, this will waste RAM (and possibly CPU time). For the Steam version, this will also prevent cloud syncs, and you will not be able to re-launch Torchlight 2 until the old process is gone.
Use killall Torchlight2.exe2 to force-kill it. In my experience, this has no negative effects (if you do it after trying to shut down the game properly first).
