Witchtastic gets Steam Deck Verified after the dev made improvements

By - | Views: 16,016

As time goes on, more developers are tweaking their games to improve the Steam Deck experience and Witchtastic looks like a fun co-op game to try out. What is it? Witchtastic is a 2-4 player co-op game about brewing and delivering magic potions as fast as possible. In a number of ways, the franticness and design is a lot like the Overcooked series.

Recently the developer published a patch that they said ensured all elements properly fit on the smaller screen, and they also adjusted the text sizes to be big enough to be clear — an issue far too many other games still haven't sorted. Thanks to their adjustments, it's also now Steam Deck Verified!

Interesting, I should grab this game however, Can this game be played on the go with friends?

Forgive me for sounding stupid here as I don't normally play multiplayer games or co op games, But how does co-op play work on the steam deck if outside with friends?. Do the deck units link via WI-fi? or are we talking about traditional online play only?

I only ask this as I see co-op as a experience when you are actually with your friends and not online. Valve should implement such a feature to allow at least 4 steam deck users to link their decks to play co-op. If not possible then maybe they could implement this feature in a hardware attachment such as a hub unit.

Quoting: finaldestValve should implement such a feature to allow at least 4 steam deck users to link their decks to play co-op.

There’s nothing stopping you from sitting in the same room as other deck users and playing online together except not having any deck-owning friends.

Ah, interesting bit for the WLAN. It would be nice to have a builtin option, although one can use a phone access point or domestic wi-fi, or even a deck as an access point (requires some config).

Otherwise, just connect multiple controllers (like a pair of joy-con over bluetooth). And maybe hook up the deck to a TV for a larger screen. That's what couch co-op is about.

I've seen that game before, it seemed a bit bland compared to overcook, but hopefully it continues improving! Overcook works nicely too, although it took some fidling with Proton versions, and the Steam Xinput API can be buggy at times.

I see some part of this game was inspired by Hercules: <something> bull .
