I tried, and it is happening the same thing
And the same is happening with another game on itch.io, the ravenfield.
Okay, this part I got, opens the resolution setting screen, I click ok, but the game does not open at all. Of course as I use x64, the x86 version does not even open.
I downloaded the universal game version for linux, however I do not see how to install or play with the unformatted game file. Who knows how to help please give a light. Use elementary OS, dist from Ubuntu 16.04.
