Steam Deck Verified picks for the 2023 holiday season

By - | Views: 56,155

Need some fresh games for the holiday season? Got you covered here with some more games that have recently become fully Steam Deck Verified so you can click play and enjoy.

Valve are constantly going over the many tens of thousands of games on Steam, and as Proton improves (or games get a updated Linux port), the status of games can change quite often.

So here's some more picks that are fully steam deck verified Steam Deck Verified at time of publishing..

House Flipper 2

"It's time to dust off your hammer - House Flipper is back in a brand-new fashion! Buy and renovate run-down houses! Or maybe you want to build new ones? Now you can! Start as a rookie Flipper and make a fortune by helping out the community of the charming town of Pinnacove."

Layers of Fear

"All stories must come to an end, even twisted and eerie ones. The canvas. The stage. The novel. This narrative-focused psychological horror experience is ready for its final brushstrokes, its curtain call, its final chapter. Are you ready to return and face your fears one last time?"

Cultist Simulator (Native Linux)

"Seize forbidden treasures. Summon alien gods. Feed on your disciples. Cultist Simulator is a game of apocalypse and yearning. Play as a seeker after unholy mysteries, in a 1920s-themed setting of hidden gods and secret histories."

ENDLESS Dungeon

"ENDLESS Dungeon is a Rogue-lite Tactical Action game, set in the award-winning ENDLESS Universe. Recruit a team of shipwrecked heroes, plunge into a long-abandoned space station, and protect your crystal against never-ending waves of monsters… or die trying, get reloaded, and try again."

Sonic Generations Collection

"The ultimate celebration of 20 Years of Sonic gaming, Sonic Generations delivers the definitive experience for Sonic fans new and old. Sonic’s universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power comes into force, creating ‘time holes’ which take Sonic and his friends back in time. Whilst there, Sonic runs into some very familiar characters from his past including a younger version of himself! Now they must team up to defeat their enemies, save their friends, and find out who is behind this diabolical deed."

Against the Storm

"A dark fantasy city builder where you must rebuild civilization in the face of apocalyptic rains. As the Queen’s Viceroy, lead humans, beavers, lizards, foxes, and harpies to reclaim the wilderness and secure a future for civilization's last survivors."

Make Way

"Speed around loops, dart through train crossings, drift around helter skelters, and unleash wacky weaponry in this modern take on classic top-down multiplayer racing games. The twist? You build the track."

Inkulinati

"Inkulinati is a turn-based strategy game straight from medieval manuscripts, where a rabbit’s bum can be deadlier than a dog's sword. Become a master of the Living Ink, build your own bestiary, defeat medieval superstars and collect perks to unleash hidden powers."

I've been game-hopping since finishing BG3. But I will try to play, and finish, Stray and Sifu over the holidays on the Deck. If time allows, I would also like to start Norco, or perhaps give another run to Pentiment.

P.S: All of them Deck verified.

I'd recommend Ludus Mortis - it just got Verified, and it's a very good Dungeon Crawler

I’ve been playing Far Cry Primal which uniquely takes place in the Stone Age in 10,000B.C.E. It’s a lot of fun and runs great on Deck! (Despite the long list of Playable warnings I haven’t noticed any issues at all.)

For me it’s Jusant for the next few days

Awesome game and looks great on deck.

I've been working my way through the two final DLCs for Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew (20% off right now). Both new characters offer some new mechanics to play with (Yuki being the first character to be able to leave traps, and Zagan having ranged abilities that can go through walls, and some that interact with his health), and the missions have a few new features as well. I just need to finish Yuki's final mission at this point.

That, and RimWorld, which I've finally found irresistible with the addition of about 500 mods.

At that price, it should be illegal not to own the whole franchise. But I have them in DS, Switch (digital and Japanese imported physical). I don't think I can justify another copy xD

Love to hear this. Shadow Gambit is on my wishlist for when I'm ready to play another long-ish game. I would also like to pay for it full price, mimimi devs deserve it.

No problem. It's a great little quasi-remake, and an absolute steal at that price!

They added some multiplayer mini-games not too long ago, and though I'm not sold on all of them (Zool's gameplay is a bit too fast for some of them, I feel), some of them work quite well.

You know what's up!

I still need to pick up The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, but I won't be picking up Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy because Capcom is doubling down on Denuvo, which instantly knocked it off of my wishlist.

I hope to see Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright get a Steam port at some point, but that's probably more down to Level-5 than Capcom - though I could see Capcom mandating Denuvo for that, too.
