The game requires libcrypto.so.1.0.0 and libssl.so.1.0.0 shared libraries. These files are from OpenSSL. Recent systems block version 1.0.0 because of security reasons (not supported anymore).
Missing shared libraries[5]
  1. Download the 2 missing libraries
  2. Copy libcrypto.so.1.0.0 and libssl.so.1.0.0 to <path-to-game>/12ibt6Hi/lib.
  3. Save <path-to-game>/12ibt6Hi/lib path into LD_LIBRARY_PATH env variable (export <path-to-game>/12ibt6Hi/lib)

    I was unable to launch the game on my PC (manjaro). After some search I found that the game requires some specific version of shared libraries. After manually putting these shared libraries into the right place in the game folder and providing a environment variable to tell the game where to find these libraries I was able to play the game.
