Few weeks ago Tasharen Entertainment released Linux build of Unity game "Windward" - sea MMORPG, inspired by Sid Meier's Pirates. Game looks like nice MMORPG and you still can play with bots. Game available on Desura (but there is no Linux build yet). Everybody can try free account with limitations: only 1 ship per account and you can't choose some types of ship for your account.

Announce of Linux build on forum:

I wanted click at "Free account" to change for "Premium" but the game crashed.

In terminal appears only "Core dumped".

Any suggestions?
