Installation was problematic, but doable.
Gameplay. Tested for less than 30 minutes. Game played through the previously non-functional animation sequence that halted the game before. That animation is the first character that appears and talks.
command-line: winetricks directmusic
What does not
Unknown. I played for less than 30 minutes.
What was not tested
Settings/preferences that were not the default.
I played for less than 30 minutes, so I did not play through the entire demo.
I gave the game a bronze rating because the installation was problematic. The installation visuals rendered differently than they would on a Windows system. On my linux distro, they were rendered messily and incomplete. Occasionally the dialog boxes would not respond to key presses.
