    Conclusion:
    Garden Paws ran perfectly on my GTX 1060 without any performance issues.
    I did have a problem where the mouse will stop working in the menus which can prevent you from saving, crafting and interacting with NCPs. I found that experimenting with the Display Tab in Wine Configuration can help. Like enabling the virtual desktop and/or enabling "capture the mouse in full-screen windows". Or just play Garden Paws in windowed mode. Otherwise make sure to save by sleeping in-game otherwise you might loose a lot of progress because the only way to fix it is by killing the processes and starting over. The easiest way to resolve this is by playing in Windowed mode, but you won't get to play in a cinematic fullscreen view.
