It's great to see such a beautiful, well crafted game day one on Linux. Unfortunately, I've encountered a game breaking bug: As soon as I start the game I can see a mouse cursor and a black screen – that's it. After some time wave sounds appear, but it doesn't go any further.
I've got the same problem (...)
Same issue here (...)
Thanks for reporting the problem! We will let the developer know about the issue.
It looks like the game struggles to find the correct resolution and as a result of that, it tries to create a fullscreen window of with 0x0 dimensions. It's a bug of a Unity screen selector plugin.
As a workaround, you need to open the game configuration file (created after running the game at least once): $HOME/.config/unity3d/Daedalic Entertainment GmbH/AER_ Memories of Old/prefs
And change lines:
<pref name="Screenmanager Is Fullscreen mode" type="int">1</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Resolution Height" type="int">0</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Resolution Width" type="int">0</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Is Fullscreen mode" type="int">0</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Resolution Height" type="int">720</pref>
<pref name="Screenmanager Resolution Width" type="int">1280</pref>
Let me know if that helped!
(..) it seems as if important game files are missing in the installer:

Not at all! Many Unity engine games display such message in their logs and function 100% properly. It's just a weird quirk of Unity ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
