    Necrovision is a WWII Military shooter franchise with a zombie-Wolfenstein feel. Lost Company is a prequel throwing you back into battle with a small platoon of soldiers who sometimes help you take out zombies and possessed Nazi. Except you are now a German soldier uniting Axis and Allied troops again the forces of evil.
    New weapons, new levels, plane fights, weapon upgrades and much more.

    Lost Company was made in 2010 and runs perfectly in Wine on PlayOnLinux. I didn't have any issues installing, configuring or playing as you can see in the video. It is a bit dated when compared to more recent FPS, but still fun and intense!

    Unfortunately the DirectX 10 features do not run in Wine, but there is a workaround to force DirectX 9

    After installing the game, navigate to this folder
    /home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/necrovision/drive_c/GOG Games/NecroVision Lost Company/Bin

    Open config.ini in a text editor

    Change this line to = 1
    Cfg.RenderDevice = 1

    Now the game will launch without any problems.

    Specs:
    Mint 20.2 64-bit
    GeForce GTX 1060
    Nvidia 470
    PlayOnLinux 4.3.4
    Wine 6.0 64-bit
    DXVK 1.9.2
