    Streets of Rogue "Alpha" is an indie action stealth shooter with some amazing 8-bit features. Select from several classes with abilities and strengths. Use their special skills to loot, murder, bribe, and much much more. Each level is procedurally made, totally destructible and full of living NCPs. Every action has a consequence, so think before you act.

    Linux version:
    The developers already have an alpha Linux version available: Streets Of Rogue

    Conclusion:Streets Of Rogue ran perfectly once I figured out it was a 64-bit executable only. 64-bit Wine ran it really well without any issues. There is a chance it may run a bit slow, so try setting different screen resolutions to gain some performance. I was unable to play co-op because my game controllers are probably too old for Unity 3D.
