Project Zomboid, a survival game from The Indie Stone that's currently in Early Access just had a big new stable release, and it should now work better on the Steam Deck and with controllers overall.
Currently a Steam Deck Verified title, it actually wasn't supposed to be Verified until now as the testing was done on a Beta build, which is now what's live. Seems Valve need to tweak the auto-publishing of results when done on a non-Public build.
On the Steam Deck they tweaked a bunch of their settings so that it should work properly out of the box, including at a resolution that actually works. You can also now do precise positioning when placing items when using a controller, more panels can be scrolled using the right-stick, the start button now brings up the main-menu in single-player, controller navigation added to the Steam Workshop UI, controller navigation for the server browser and lots of fixes for little niggling Steam Deck and controller issues. Overall, it runs far better in my test this morning.
This build also included some big new features too including:
- A new action music system.
- New items and updated 3D models.
- New forage items.
- A compilation of new hair types.
- Option to "add all" to partially full Thread, Duct Tape, Twine etc
- Numerous multiplayer improvements.
- Updated community translations.
- Loads of balancing changes.
- Plenty of bug fixes.
- And much much more!
