There are multiple versions of this game, all just named "G-String", which don't differ a lot in the overall style but they differ a lot in content (levels, assets).

What works

The game.

What does not

The sound does not work immediately.

The small font in the game settings is distorted, but still readable (this is not relevant to the gameplay, so I didn't care about it).

When the game starts the window glitches and you have to press enter blindly to skip the intro.


In order to fix the sound, you have to use a vpk extractor and simply extract the sound folder into the base dir (gstringv2).

I used "rvpk" but there are other vpk extractors as well.

> cd ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/G\ String/gstringv2/

> rvpk unpack gstringv2_dir.vpk sound

It doesn't seem to make sense, but this 100% fixes the missing sound files.

What was not tested

I didn't do a full playthrough, but I played a good portion of the game.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

I ran the game with:

> wine gstring.exe -game gstringv2 -w 1920 -h 1080

from the folder ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/G\ String/

The game runs very fast when disabling anisotopic filtering and antialising.

You should probably add those performance tweaks:
