Hello!
I have a question about some aspects of the games.
Notice: The Linux version comes with a 32-bit binary only. This is a Wine game and requires your local Wine package in order to play.
What does it mean? Is it not only just a Windows version in disguise, but not even containing a bundled (and guaranteed to work) WINE version, instead relying on system WINE (prone to breaking with updates)? How does it work? Is it just an ordinary Windows game packaged into MojoSetup and called "Linux Version"? Or, perhaps, an error in description took place and in reality ther is no need to install WINE system-wide?

I’ve yet to see a single Linux WINE game sold on GOG not including a copy of WINE.
My guess is that it is recommended to install your system-provided WINE just to get sure that all its dependencies are installed too.

Hello there!

vv221 is right here. Wine is included with the copy of the game, however it has a lot of 32 bit dependencies, and the only way to satisfy all of them is to install your local Wine package.

I tried Septerra Core a few weeks ago, have to say the packaging is really good for a Wine wrapped game. I didn't have to install any additional dependancies, simply ran start.sh and it ran as well as a native game.

Must say I'm impressed :-)

This one wasn't wrapped by us, it was made by our partner and the game publisher - TopWare.
