Is it possible to play Wizard101 on Linux? I already know about the Wine Program, just thought I'd ask anyway.:)

Steam is available in Linux's software manager. Perhaps wizard101 is available inside steam ?

I already tried that way but that game only seems to work on Windows.

I am running linux mint 18.3
click on menu
then software manager
install Steam
search in Linux games

the result......



you have to open a steam account etc during the process of installing Steam

I dont play games....so you will have to figure the rest out.

Is there a possibility to play this game on Linux or do I have to have Windows to play it?

Now that's interesting! Thanks for the link, @arochester :)

Featured in the list is Wolfenstein3D, which 20 years ago, I used to enjoy.

It was produced by Manaccom Pty Ltd, who were headquartered in the suburb of Milton, Brisbane - my home town in southeast Qld, Australia.

You can read about them here https://www.mobygames.com/company/manaccom-pty-ltd

... and I used to play DukeNukem and Doom as well.

Aahh, a blast from the past :);)

The Wizard 101 game works great from PlayonLinux but when I have it installed, my background app indicators like Chrome, Hangouts, & Firefox won't show when log on or reboot my PC nor Alarm Clock won't show either. But when I have the game removed they all work fine.

It plays on my older Gateway. I use wine but not steam. Runs fine.
env WINEPREFIX="/home/trespidian/.wine" wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix /home/trespidian/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Desktop/Play\ Wizard101.lnk
Thats on Linux Mint Mate with wine installed.
