While there's been a few unofficial ways to check your own Steam Library for the Steam Deck, Valve has now put up the official way. Plus, we're getting closer to a thousand Playable titles now. Things are really heating up, with only two days left until the official release on February 25!

All you need to do is login with your Steam account and head to this page, which will give you an overview of what you can expect to work.

My own Steam Library has 2,113 that have yet to even be tested. Just keep in mind, untested doesn't mean they won't work. You'll be able to install anything and see for yourself at release.

In other news, as of publishing time there's 762 at either fully Verified or Playable (SteamDB).

  • 405 - Verified
  • 357 - Playable
  • 366 - Unsupported

Some recently Verified titles include Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Yooka-Laylee, ARK: Survival Evolved, NBA 2K21, Goat Simulator, Grapple Dog, Five Nights at Freddy's 2, Legend of Grimrock 2 and Death Road to Canada.

Quoting: jordicomaUnsupported? This has more sense than on spanish "No compatibles" (no compatible), as many of these games works on my linux, even some are native.

Maybe unsupported only means that you do not have any support from the publisher ?
I agree not compatible is terrible.
The problem is that in this list, you have both : not compatibles, and compatibles but unsupported.

Unsupported reasons generally the following:

1. "Valve is still working on adding support for this game on Steam Deck" - When you see this it usually refers to Proton features being worked on. In most cases this refers to mfplat support. There's a good chance these will work eventually.

2. "This game's anti-cheat is not configured to support Steam Deck" - Not Valve's problem, fire ze missiles at the dev/publisher.

3. "This game is unsupported on Steam Deck due to use of an unsupported anti-cheat" - Don't expect these to work any time soon.

4. "Steam Deck does not support VR games" - I mean, you can in theory get VR working on the deck, but the experience will be terrible.

5. Games that fail to start at all. Tried to find an actual example of this, but gave up.

I would agree, but why is Outlast, which I played through natively, appearing on my "unsupported" list?

Native (and even "Platinum on ProtonDB/AppDB") does not equate verified for the Deck.

I doubt many games were made with a 7"-9" screen and controller only support in mind. In fact, I'd imagine some simply will never work by design, regardless of Linux compatibility.

That wasn't the question. Like, not at all.
There's not only Verified and Unsupported, but also Playable - which Outlast for sure was for me.

Playable games with readibility problems and such fall into the category Playable, not Unsupported.

Specifically, I was asking about the game Outlast, which is also on consoles, including Switch version, so we can be sure it can work with controllers and on a small screen good enough to be, well "Playable".

Quoting: SalvatosPSA: You can hover a game and click the "Steam Deck Compatibility" button to see loosely why it has the current status.

Thanks!
This shows "Valve is working on support of this game for Steam Deck".
Makes a lot more sense.

BTW, checkmydeck has the info when hovering over the right column:

"Unsupported" does not mean "does not work."

They're literally saying it means "currently don't function on Steam Deck", on the page Liam linked.

Sorry. I stand corrected.
