What works

First 2 hours of gameplay.

Manual loading & saving, quick-saving.

Keyboard & mouse input.

Used Visible Upgrade mod to get widescreen.

What does not

The biggest problem is that the game does NOT auto-save properly.

I suspect that this is because of my system's locale, it saves the game into "??? ?????????" ("My Documents") but if you look at the save index file, the encoding seems to be messed up.

Anyway, I died after 2 hours of gameplay, restarted from the autosave and got put at the very start of the game. I was very frustrated with my lost progress, and since the game is known to be mediocre anyway I decided it's not worth re-playing.


I had to enable Multi-core Mode in the Visible Upgrade mod settings, otherwise the game gets extremely laggy. The vanilla game doesn't have this issue.

Sometimes when you leave a menu, the mouse input will be broken. The way to work around this is to enter any menu and lthen leave it, without moving the mouse.

I use Sway, a tiling window manager written for Wayland, and just like with other games, I had to enable virtual desktop to get the game to work. I suspect that other users won't have issues with this.

What was not tested

More than 2 hours of gameplay.

Controller input.
