    Conclusion:
    TORB was able to run really well with stable Wine. There is one level that slowed the Frame Rate as the enemies appear, so lower the Graphics quality in Unity before playing it. Didn't need DXVK or staging versions... it just ran out-of-the-box. I was also able to play with two USB controllers and do verses or co-op in waves. Pretty fun game and pretty hard as you learn how to move the sword and attempt attacks from different angles.
