Heroic Games Launcher recently had a massive 2.9.0 version bump with some awesome new features like Amazon Games integration. However, it was just a little bit broken.
What is it? Heroic Games Launcher is an open source game launcher that supports GOG, Epic Games, Amazon Games and it can side-load browser apps and pretty much any installer now too. Available for Linux (and Steam Deck), macOS, Windows.
The 2.9.0 release was broken in the way that uh — games wouldn't actually launch. Bit of a woops but it's solved now and the 2.9.1 hotfix also cleans up some issues for the new Amazon Games integration too. Checking back on it myself and yup, it seems nicely fixed with games launching properly again now (including from Amazon).
What's changed in 2.9.1:
As a reminder of the highlight features from 2.9.0:
- Amazon Games Support
- GPTK support
- DRM support for browser apps
- ProtonDB & Steam Deck compatibility on game page
- Playtime tracking for GOG
- Possibility to disable log files
- Installing older DXVK on older hardware
