Humble Battles of Yore Bundle has plenty for Linux and Steam Deck

By - | Views: 13,753

A collection of RPGs, grand strategy and more modern spiritual successors to legendary PC games of yore apparently. Humble have an interesting bundle of titles in the Battles of Yore Bundle.

Looks like all of them will work on Linux too with Steam Play Proton, and plenty of them also have a Playable rating through Deck Verified for the Steam Deck. So here's the usual round-up of what to expect from it:

  • CROSSBOW: Bloodnight - Not rated for Steam Deck, ProtonDB listings really old
  • Ember - Steam Deck Playable
  • Field of Glory: Empires - Not rated for Steam Deck, ProtonDB listings really old
  • Gordian Quest - Steam Deck Playable
  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Enhanced Plus Edition (Linux Native) - Steam Deck Playable
    • + Royal Ascension DLC
    • + The Wildcards DLC
  • Plebby Quest: The Crusades - Steam Deck Playable
  • Tyranny - Deluxe Edition (Linux Native) - Not rated for Steam Deck but Linux version should work fine

See the full bundle here.

Quoting: slaapliedjeNice! Though why would you use the DualShock 4 with the Steam Deck?
While it's docked and connected to the TV.
I haven't tried this yet... but can't you hook it to a TV and use the large screen for the game, and still use the built in controls? What would be killer is for games to have a mini screen so you could have the Deck's screen be a map, and the rest of the game display on the TV/Monitor. Like Fallout 4 could have the map on a Tablet/phone.

Not in Game Mode - at least not yet. That simply disables the built-in screen as soon as an external display is connected. In Desktop Mode it might work, but I haven't tried it, because the cable on my USB-C hub is way too short to allow picking up the deck.

Edit: I'm really hoping that Valve adds some display options for Game Mode. Right now it's a bit annoying, because I use the same USB-C hub for charging and TV display, so whenever I charge the deck, the built-in screen goes blank. It would be nice to have it active, to check up on charging or download progress.

Yeah, 'some' form of function. Hmm, isn't there such a thing as wireless hdmi? :P I mean if we could get a latency free miracast...

I ended up ordering some 10 ft USB-C to HDMI cables...
