Quoting: einherjarI know, but it is in the headline of "gaming on linux" and is only Win. So at least it is very old and *may* work with Wine. So not interesting enough IMHO to be the headliner.
It does work in Wine. I tried it for a whole minute, just for you!

(And it is "gaming on linux", not "native gaming on linux" )

Complete mess

It uses legacy OpenGL features, but seems to use a core context. Needs to be run with MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.6COMPAT, and even then you get errors like these:

QuoteMesa: User error: GL_INVALID_OPERATION in glBindVertexArray(non-gen name)
Mesa: 14624 similar GL_INVALID_OPERATION errors
Mesa: User error: GL_INVALID_OPERATION in glGenerateMipmap(incomplete cube map)
Mesa: 4 similar GL_INVALID_OPERATION errors
Mesa: User error: GL_INVALID_OPERATION in glBindVertexArray(non-gen name)
Mesa: 1720 similar GL_INVALID_OPERATION errors
Mesa: User error: GL_INVALID_OPERATION in glGenerateMipmap(incomplete cube map)
Mesa: 4 similar GL_INVALID_OPERATION errors
Mesa: User error: GL_INVALID_OPERATION in glBindVertexArray(non-gen name)

Another issue, at exit the window disappears quickly, but the game process seems to take 10-15 seconds longer to exit (sometimes it hangs) meanwhile keeping your cursor hostage.

Oh, thanks for spotting this one!

I'm saving up all my courage* for another horror game (hopefully releasing tomorrow) but at 2,99€ this is too good an offer to pass. Almost feels bad to buy games so cheap. Not bad enough to pay the full retail price, but still...

Steam Play Proton 5.13-1 Linux compatibility layer up and ready for testing
16 October 2020 at 8:25 pm UTC

Quoting: TheRiddickSomething odd about this proton, it doesn't copy files into the compatdata area anymore, infact only makes the folder but ignores all else.. Seems its using a universal proton folder? who knows where.

OH, that is very odd. Its using the .wine folder. Could be a issue with compatibility add-in none-steam-games.
Not sure I follow? I forced a Proton 5.13 run for a new title, and it seems to be creating and populating a compatdata dir just as before?

I do have a problem with all non-steam titles running through Steam. None of them work with 5.13, it doesn't even try to upgrade the prefix.

Quoting: EikeIt's nice that you can smell stuff as the animal. :)
Absolutely! Space Quest IV had the possibility to smell and lick stuff. something I've always missed in other adventure games.

I think this is the first one to have actions for bite and scratch though.

Quoting: Termyhm, i don't see a demo, am i missing something? O_o
I think it was time limited, part of the Steam Game Festival.

Quite annoying. I can understand releasing demos as an event during the festival, but why remove them?

Quoting: follower46I must be missing something here. Is it powered by hopes and dreams?
I don't see a PSU plug for the computer, lol.
I see a fan, I assume it cools the PSU, but it doesn't have any information on the site about power output or PSU requirements like SFX (if it's bring your own).
This https://www.mini-box.com/picoPSU-90 and an external power brick. It's in the video at around 4:11 or so.

Quoting: dpanterCan you test if the lens flares are gone as well? Use different AA settings at night with bloom enabled.

Quoting: x_wingDoes this patch only fix the issue with Proton/DXVK?
Don't know if you follow the fdo bug or not, but I modified one of the shaders in the game to get rid of the NaN issue and it seems to be working fine here:

Drop the file in a dir and run the game with MESA_SHADER_READ_PATH=/path/to/shader/dir
