The Thaumaturge Demo playable on Linux!

I was able to get The Thaumaturge October 2023 Steam Next Fest working pretty quickly, even though it was throwing “Microsoft Visual C++ runtime” errors at launch on Manjaro KDE Linux.

  • Install The Thaumaturge Demo from Steam
  • Install protontricks
  • Install ProntonUp-Qt
  • Launch Protontricks: “Select the default wineprefix” and click OK
  • Select “Install a Windows DLL or component” and click OK
  • Selected and install “vcrun2022”
  • Then you will also want to select and install “mspatcha”
  • Close Protontricks
  • Launch ProtonUp-Qt: Install for “Steam” and then click “Add version” to installed “GE-Proton8-16”
  • Close ProtonUp-Qt
  • Within Steam, Rick-click on “The Thaumaturge Demo” and select “Properties…”
  • Click on Compatibility > check “Force the use of a specific Steam Play compatibility tool” and then select “GE-Proton8-16” from the list
  • Close the Properties window”
  • Play The Thaumaturge Demo

NOTE: Some of the tutorial video that come up will display fine, but then when they repeats it has an issue; this doesn’t impact game play.
