Samurai Survivors is another in the somewhat long list now of bullet-hell horde styled games, that exploded thanks to Vampire Survivors. It has Linux support and now it's Steam Deck Verified too. Released back in April, I'm not sure how I entirely missed it given my absolute love of these simple games that really sucker you in. 

Over the last couple months the developer worked on fixing up bugs, improved text readability, improved gamepad support, fixed scaling issues at 16:10 resolutions and more. Thanks to all that, Valve slapped a Steam Deck Verified sticker on it with the Native Linux build.

Oh man! I recently picked up Vampire Survivors. It really gets the heart racing when you are being chased by a horde!

I didn't even realise there were others, but of course there are. TikTok adverts are showing off a mobile rip-off which seems to be doing very well financially off in-game purchases! Seems to be this year's Minecraft :D
