The demo version of Prey.
With the native Linux demo by icculus there is no need to use Wine anymore!
Installed by double clicking the Prey_Demo.exe file. Installation also worked using the command "wine prey_demo.exe" without quotes.
K Menu > Settings > Sound and Multimedia > Sound System. Audio device set to either Auto Detect or Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA). I did not have to use winecfg or adjust anything for sound to work.
Launching the game using either the icon on the desktop or in the K Menu.
Game Main Menu.
Gameplay. I played through all levels of the demo.
What does not
During installation, the complete text of the License Agreement was not shown.
The website that the demo links to for ordering. That website is playtriton.com it is now a sole advertising webpage.
Mulitiplayer, only because a server was not available to use at the time I tested the demo.
What was not tested
Multiplayer because a server was not available for use.
Changing the settings for sound and keyboard.
