Quick guide on runnin the game on Linux. This will work on Steam Deck as well btw (unless youre some kind of FREAK using a different OS than the one it ships with)
Get it from your package manager.
On Gentoo, use
# emerge -a games-emulation/dosbox-staging
On Arch/BTW, use
# pacman -S dosbox
But I recommend DOSBox staging, as it is more modern. That is available from the AUR
Edit Launch Options
Right click game in Steam Library -> Properties -> Launch Options, type dis in:
echo %command% > /dev/null && cd Game && dosbox DARK.EXE
That’s it bud!
For more on DOSBox, check here: https://www.dosbox.com/ – [dosbox.com]
I recommend changing your DOSBox config to have mouse capture, you can find your config in ~/.config/dosbox/
The config file will have information on each setting, so you can check there.
