If you enjoy strategy games, you don't want to miss the free giveaway of Battlestar Galactica Deadlock. The developer is currently giving it away to keep on Steam, with anyone able to claim a copy until April 9th, 9AM UTC.
The game has a Steam Deck 'Playable' rating, and according to ProtonDB it's rated Platinum from the crowd-sourced reports. I've played a bit of it on desktop myself and can indeed confirm it works great on Linux.
