Valve continues going through the almighty Steam library to tag games through their Deck Verified certification for the Steam Deck. Let's have a look at the current numbers and what's new.

Currently across games, software and DLC there's a total of 1,352 that are either Verified (740) or Playable (612). Thankfully it's easier than ever to track, since Valve have the official categories available on Steam and you can sort it by the time the latest compatibility happened.

Here's some of what's newly added:

  • A Hat in Time (Verified)
  • Charlie Murder (Verified)
  • Forza Horizon 5 (Playable)
  • GROUND BRANCH (Playable)
  • Kentucky Route Zero: PC Edition (Verified)
  • SLUDGE LIFE (Verified)
  • Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy (Verified)
  • Splitgate (Verified)
  • Super Hexagon (Playable)
  • THE KING OF FIGHTERS XV (Playable)
  • Tacoma (Verified)
  • Valheim (Verified - previously Playable, also swapped to Native from Proton)
  • Wreckfest (Verified)
  • Yes, Your Grace (Verified)

In case you missed it, I did a quick video previously of Valheim running:

Allot of people were complaining that Valheim is a pretty terribly optimized game even for normal PC. Given its low polygon+texture art style, that is surprising.

It has a lot of the same problems as other open-world games due to their dynamic nature. It doesn't help that Unity still doesn't seem to have the best performance for big games like it.

Good, more people should play Wreckfest.

If Splitgate is verified, does that mean they've fixed the voice chat issues on Linux?

Everything seems fine, until your friends decide to build a (massive) base...

I was going to say "I sure wish they showed the Steam Deck compatibility info on the game page" - but then I found that they do! It's just buried pretty far down in the right-hand column. When I get some time I'll have to see if anyone has made a GreaseMonkey script for moving that to a better spot, and if not try to do so myself!

Quoting: GazocheIf Splitgate is verified, does that mean they've fixed the voice chat issues on Linux?
No, they haven't. I'm a semi-regular Splitgate player on Linux and we still don't have working voice chat.

The fact that they called it Verified even with that could mean a few things, going from worst to best:

1. They didn't listen to Ethan whatsoever and Deck verification is still slapdash nonsense.
2. They had legitimately no idea it existed. I actually didn't know it existed until I happened to look into it, because I don't have any use or need for it. FPS players tend to be the most toxic and obnoxious of normie gamers, and Splitgate, going by its Discord, is no exception. I don't want to hear those people anyways.
3. In-game voice chat is not considered significant enough functionality to warrant its exclusion from verification. And honestly? I kind of agree with that, if that's the case. The main reason you would want voice chat is to talk with your friends when you're on a team together, but Discord better serves that need and works across multiple games. I can't imagine anyone is so attached to the in-game voice chat that they wouldn't accommodate if a Linux player asked to chat on Discord instead.
