Can't run Steam game - Battle vs Chess

This is my first attempt to games on Linux since a very long time so I'm not sure where to start.
I have Manjaro minimal architect install, so I had to install steam-manjaro. No problem here.
I can run it. I have game Battle vs Chess. Game is on Linux supported list. Installation of the game without a problem.

When I try to start it there is a popup windows with serial number and information that I'll need to use it in game.

I found a possible solution here. It is an issue in steam.

Their solution was to add the line en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 to the end of the file /etc/locale.gen using your favorite text editor (will need root/sudo access).

Then run sudo local-gen

That didn't help.
There is no problem with

setlocale('en_US.UTF-8')

but I can't run the game.
I wanted to check commandos game that worked some time ago but no success either.

edit.
I checked again. Nor success with chess but commandos - almost. There is a commandos loading screen for second or two and then game is quiting.

I installed game uplink. It's some kind of hacking game. Mostly text based with some graphics. It works.
