What works

Installs correctly.

A few runtime errors appeared at the end of installation process (quite usual GOG installers' behaviour), but the whole installation ends as successful and they have no impact on how the game works. 

What does not

Starting plain TLC.exe file caused black screen (sound-only) movies for me. 


The game (TLC.exe) needs to be launched with --disable-gpu argument. It resolves aforementioned issue.

What was not tested

Everything tested:

  • movies
  • gameplay
  • saving
  • loading
  • changing window size

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Beware - the game offers only one saving slot and sometimes freezes; it is quite rare, but it happens. When game is frozen, exit and do not save. Saving in such situation will made you start from the very beginning. I'm not sure if the issue is somehow related with Linux/Wine or perhaps it just work like that in Windows also.
