I'm trying to play the game on linux with wine but it's not working, can anyone help?

What issue is it giving you ? Any error message ?

While I can't speak to the full version the demo from Itch.io is working with Wine for me. I just downlaoded it, extracted it, right clicked "Protocol.exe" and chose "Open With Wine Windows Program Loader" and the game laucnhed.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X | 16GB DDR4-3000 CL15 | MSI RX 580 8GB Gaming X | Mesa 18.3.3 | Manjaro Mate | Kernel 4.20.11-1-MANJARO | Wine 4.2-1

I run it from the terminal and It opens a window saying "fatal error" then it closes.

Intel® Core™ i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz × 4 | GeForce GTX 1050 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 | Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS | Wine 3.0

May be an issue with that version of Wine and Protocol. Wine 3.0 was released 15 months ago so there could be a lot of bug fixes and feature releases in that time span. To put it in perspective Wine 4.2, which is what I used, was released last month.

I'm not sure how to update Wine version, still new to linux.

Have you checked if there are any updates for Wine in the Software Center ?

Yes, their version is 3.0-1ubuntu1.

I was able to update Wine, the game still doesn't work but now all I get is a black screen.
