    game doesnt work on Debian PC

    i am on Debian GNU/Linux 8.
    i purchased the game on steam.
    the website does not allow me to attach my output log file to this post, so here is a google drive link.

    and here is a recording of me attempting to play the game.

    First try disabling the Steam in-game overlay, then try checking "Use GLCore Renderer" in the launcher. If neither works, scroll down the page here for other ideas:

    Is Debian GNU/Linux 8 even in the supported OS list?

    Ubuntu 12.04+ is supported, which is a more feature-rich offshoot of Debian linux:

    Seems like you have to go through a few hoops to get it to run on Debian, but I can never recall what they are.

    i'm well aware of the existance of Ubuntu and what it is. however distribution change is not an option for me.

    Looks like a renderer issue. Did you try with GLCore?

    I don't see mention of your gpu - which gpu, and do you have the proprietary drivers installed? 7D2D works out of the box on Slackware, I'm surprised it doesn't work on Debian also. I gave up on Ubuntu in disgust a few years ago. IIRC 7D2D it comes with its own mono install, so complain-mono-complain in the logs is not necessarily an indication of a mono problem. Post your stats. What version of Debian? Did you install mono yourself, it is a clean install?

    Here is my hardinfo report. Its a little old but no hardware changes have been made since I generated this.
