This wasn't supposed to be a rant, but it ended up being one anyway. I have a question for the devs:

How frustrating is it that the blame gets shifted to you when this game becomes unplayable?

I mean, I have made this account solely for reporting that I've been receiving Error 217. The reply I got was somewhere along the lines of "You've got an outdated libphysfs.". I saw a somewhat related problem on this thread, so I think I understand what's going on.

This basically meant that you're receiving flak over a problem that isn't even your fault. How do you handle this kind of situation?

I'm already aware that I have two basic options:
1. Wait for the Debian/Ubuntu Maintainers to update the (Xenial) deb files; only Bionic Beaver is updated.
2. Build the game myself.

End rant.

I think I had similar problem, and for me, upgrading to Debian 8 helped.

Please try the builds in Locutus of Borg's PPA, linked off our download page.
He's attempting to address, I think by building with our copy of physfs... See if it helps.

Hello! The game still shares the same error on my machine. I forgot where my preview0 file went, but here's the game0 log:

Huh... The log seriously stops right there? Nothing more?
That's odd since there's an "ok" to the load of 2 images.

The very next log line is:
0: [Con] Getting game config...
Which happens after loading the localisation....
The localisation asserts might not be going to the log though. Hm...

Do you mind terribly doing:
ldd `which hwengine`

? (just to see what it is actually loading against)
Also, try running:
hwengine test.53.hwd

Against http://m8y.org/hw/test.53.hwd

And send me the output of stderr too..
