Everything. It works so well. No lag and a really good experience.

HowTo / Notes


There is a native Linux version available!

People report though there is no sound playing for them but it doesn't crash like the Windows version.

Latest wine on Ubuntu 18.04

It seems that it is broken on latest wine 3.10 and 3.10-staging on Ubuntu 18.04. With wine-staging it gets to the game part but once you try to give any keyboard input, it won't respond.
