Outcry (Russian title: Sublustrum) is an adventure game. I have the English
version of the game, obtained from Gamersgate.
Subtitles, although they're scarce in the game, appear incorrectly in the
English version. Strange signs and symbols are shown instead of Latin letters.

As the game is from Russian developers, I tried to start the game with
'LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 wine outcry.exe' and subtitles were displayed correctly...in
Russian with Cyrillic letters.
If I'm not mistaken, the full (English) version of the game contains both
Russian and English subtitles, but it displays the Russian one for some reason.

This wasn't always the case. I remember playing the game some time ago, around
Wine-1.3.17, and subtitles were displayed correctly (in English).

Regression testing revealed this (1.3.26 -> 1.3.27):
