Deadlight Director's Cut takes place after a zombie apocalypse in the 1980s. Play as Randall Wayne in a brilliant side-scrolling action puzzle platform game. Every scene has a clever puzzle and jump tricks, and survival is your goal. This isn't a zombie slaying action game, instead you have to plan out your moves in precision to reach the next area. Sometimes an all out run is the only way.
Follow my step-by-step guide on installing, configuring and optimizing Deadlight in Linux with PlayOnLinux.
Note: This guide applies to the GOG version of Deadlight. Other versions may require additional steps.

Deadlight ran fine in PlayOnLinux. The only problem I had was some screen artifacts that wouldn't go away. I spent hours messing with lighting settings in the LOTDSystemSettings.ini trying to make them go away, but couldn't find the right setting. Otherwise, performance was great on my GeForce GTX 1060
