Issues fixed

Low performance (Steam Play / Linux)

The game uses a version of the Unity Engine which has a critical bug if run via Proton resulting in low performance on some system configurations.
Limit CPU cores available to the game[3]

Add as a Launch option taskset -c 0,1,2,3 nice %command% if you CPU has more than 4 cores/threads.

  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/893680/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (893680) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
