    Dude Simulator is a sandbox free roam FPS where you can interact with just about anything in the game. You actually have objectives, but who follows those anyways? Mess with the dudes by commanding them to follow and watch them trip over eachother... or kill them, make them angry, pee on them or just do stupid things that dudes love to do. It never gets old!

    Conclusion:
    Dude Simulator ran fine with my GeForc GTX 1060. I didn't have any serious performance issues and I was able to close the game and launch it again later. Sometimes it crashes when you quit, but that is pretty typical with Wine. This is a fun sandbox game where you are free to do whatever you want. There are a lot of funny bugs messing with dudes and making them do stupid things. Nobody gets tired of that, right?

    Of course! Its actually kinda fun watching the dudes run into eachother and run into walls and cars...
    Then you can blow them up or shoot them. sometimes they run away screaming or start to attack you.
