Each time you want to run this game, instead of :

wine mygame.exe

Use :

WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-yournewgame wine mygame.exe

It will tell wine where the drive_c and configuration is.

For the applications in your default wine prefix (~/.wine) you can use wine directly.

If you want to run it from a shortcut, you will have to modify the shortcut to take into account the WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine-yournewgame part.
