As far as I could tell, all features of the demo are working.
What does not
Since it's only the demo, we can expect some surprises in the real game. I do have that, and so far nothing works, but I think I made a mistake in patching and will have to try it again.
What was not tested
The game can run excellent and look great if you pick the right options. It has a really low min requirement, and a lot of available options. I suggest you keep shadows, particles, bumpmapping, as well as other extras off, but shader version and textures can be maxed out. I also have the Microsoft TrueType fonts installed (by mistake actually) and I think it helps with missing fonts. I suggest you install it to your ~/.fonts directory so that it won't conflict with the default open fonts that are installed by default.

This should work for any app, if you have Intel + AMD or AMD + AMD with open source drivers.
If you have laptop with hybrid graphics cards. You can launch game with command:
env DRI_PRIME=1 vblank_mode=0 wine ~/path/to/your/exe/file
In case of using command, you get swich to powerful graphics card and disable vsync for more FPS.
If you have Mesa drivers 17.x.x or more, you can use this command:
env DRI_PRIME=1 mesa_glthread=true vblank_mode=0 wine ~/path/to/your/exe/file
Last command is most best in performance that you can get in this moment, you can use it for any wine application that you need. But argument mesa_glthread=true may not always work, so if your app crash, remove it.
For Steam users, you can set environment variable of any applications in properties.
DRI_PRIME=1 mesa_glthread=true vblank_mode=0 %command%
(It will work only with native Steam for Linux) For Wine, you have to start Steam or game with those arguments
