BloodDome99 from Halftone Gaming is what happens when you turn the popularised horde-survival from Vampire Survivors and put a really retro spin on it like something out of an arcade machine. Note: key provided by the developer.

You create unique builds, kill ever-growing hordes of contestants and beat your friends' high scores in the retro-futuristic gladiator arena BloodDome99. Earn money and buy upgrades but be careful because every dollar spent brings you further from your goal: buying your freedom.

It's Steam Deck Verified, and works great on desktop Linux with Proton 9. Currently in Early Access, they've just announced the 1.0 release is coming in September!

Check out the new trailer:
