    Gunman and the Witch is a real-time action strategy game where you build and manage your town while protecting the people from outlaws. When you begin the town is just a few basic buildings like a general store and a lodge, but as you add livestock, gunsmith, church and other necessities you will grow the town and earn more money. But, tend to the needs of the people otherwise the outlaw oppression will force them to leave!

    Conclusion:
    Gunman and the Witch ran perfectly in Mint on my GeForce GTX 1060. I was able to use the keyboard and mouse without issues, save, quit and continue where I left off. This is an 8-bit inspired game so it should run on just about any laptop or netbook, but it does require DXVK.
