What works

The game works. Just make sure to install Steam with winetricks. You will probably have to add msxml/vc redist with it manually. Otherwise steam tries to install them and fails when the stanley parable starts. (The game still runs.) Was able to plug in my joystick and use it with the game. The game seems to basically work with no problems.

What does not

As with the demo, light sources bleed through objects. It is a bit distracting, but completely playable.


What was not tested

Game saves.

Additional Comments

Here is hoping this game eventually gets ported to Linux. Chances seem good according to the developer forums for this game.

HowTo / Notes

Fix for lighting bug

2015-02-11 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made in 2014 and may not be relevant to current Wine.

This is apparently a bug caused by a combination of the NVidia driver and Wine after wine 1.5-ish. The easy fix is to disable multi-core rendering in Source engine games.
