    Amnesia Fortnight is a bundle of prototypes by Double-Fine Productions. These prototypes are quickly developed games without any real market limitations.
    Basically, develop and have fun.
    The bundle includes a classic RPG, an arena boss fight, sandbox robot creator/fighter, space sim, spooky adventure, platform adventure, trick-or-treat adventure and a sandbox music game.

    Launching Prototypes

    Select the prototype you want to play
    Click Run
    fortnight25.png

    Note: Click Debug to see errors and bugs

    Conclusion:
    Autonomous was the only prototype I had problems with. It ran extremely slow and any settings changed in the Launcher would not apply. I researched for several weeks on Unity 3D, Autonomouse, Wine, Flags and Arguments, but found nothing that would improve the settings.

    All the rest of the Prototypes ran perfectly. A few prototypes did not support widescreen resolutions. Each prototype has different controls and a few of them may seem confusing. Remember these are prototypes, not finished games.

    If anyone has successfully run Autonomous in PlayOnLinux, please share your tips
    I was able to run it, but extremely slow. Even on my GeForce 550 Ti and Nvidia 346 drivers.
    I tried the Unity 3D launcher, but any changes wouldn't take in-game. Not sure why. I've been able to run other launchers and make changes...
