The game is also fully supported by Boxtron (as per compatibility reports), in case you have any trouble with bundled DOSBox, the music is missing, or if you want to run the up-to-date version of the DOS emulator.
But what if, for argument's sake

Why some DOSBOX games need WINE?

Yeah, kinda. `boxtron` utility is how you could deal with those games and play on Linux (of course, I would also prefer to see developers/publishers giving more attention and support to those games themselves but it is what it is): https://github.com/dreamer/boxtron

If anyone is interested, I automated the process of converting Steam version of the game to DOS version by using Boxtron (it works on Linux only).2 projects | reddit.com/r/dosgaming | 26 Feb 2021
If you're using Steam on Linux, then the process is automatic when using Boxtron. I would still recommend to play Windows version of the game via Steam Proton instead.

Exactly. And if someone wants experience closer to the original, with the possibility of testing better sound options, then Boxtron+DOSBox Staging is also an option.
Is it possible to change Steam DOS-Box version?

If you are using Linux: yes, use Boxtron and configure it to use any DOSBox you like (but using DOSBox Staging is highly recommended).
DOSBox Pure - Out now for public testing
2 projects | reddit.com/r/RetroArch | 21 Dec 2020
Wonderful work! Emulator is really amazing. I want to use it as my main DosBox now. Is it possible to create something like https://github.com/dreamer/boxtron? To be able to select this DOSBox Pure as main compatibility layer in Linux? I do not want to lose time for other DOSBoxes when this one is perfect one. If not, maybe RetroArch should implement this change, as it is big game changer!
