Currently (2019-06) this game seems not installable because of it's DRM (Tages).

 

To (try) to improve (ie: newer Wine).

 

I'll do a report on Appdb with Wine 3.0.5 or 4.0.1 then try to improve this script.

Tried installation on Windows 7 pro 64 bits, fail too (at the end), but with a explicit error message about "tages_driver_64" (DRM ...).
