For anyone trying this on Linux with a recent Wine version, it requires dinput8- the one provided by winetricks didn't work for me, but putting a 64bit dinput8.dll from here (https://www.dlldownloader.com/dinput8-dll/) in the same folder as the exe did.
As for the game, I gave it a quick try, and it looks like fun. Didn't play past the tutorial and intro story bit yet though. I get lag spikes every 3 seconds exactly, though I don't know if that's a Linux thing, or not. And sorry, but the pathfinding is also really bad.
