Soulbringer is such an old game that it should run on any computer these days. I was even surprised that it ran at 160x1200 resolution, but for fullscreen I had to change my Linux Desktop to 1600x1200 first, otherwise it would appear to be in a window. Some of the character textures looked a bit funny when they were moving, but I noticed that is how the game has always looked. Otherwise, it ran perfectly.
