Early this morning Valve officially rolled out a big update to the Steam Play whitelist, which indicates Windows games that work well with Steam Play's Proton.

Having titles in the whitelist, also means you don't need to go into Steam's settings and tick any extra boxes as they will just show up for everyone with the ability to install and play on Linux.

Sending out a Twitter post to announced it, Valve's Pierre-Loup Griffais announced "Just pushed a Steam Play whitelist update to reflect current testing results" with a link to SteamDB which helps track it all down.

The list is reasonably long, some notable titles include:

  • Castle Crashers
  • The Witness
  • Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
  • Overcooked
  • Guacamelee! 2

It's going to be interesting to see how Valve eventually show support for Steam Play directly on Steam store pages, that's the next step that I'm looking forward to.

A pretty exciting start to a weekend wouldn't you say?

NanobangI mean, it's nice that they linked the steamdb changes, but why wouldn't they update their own list proper and just use that?

You have it backwards - SteamDB is merely reporting changes made in Steam/Valve repositories, it is not a repository in itself. In other words, SteamDb is showing the changes they made to "their own list proper", just in a more convenient format for the general public.

Hi wintermute! Thanks for the correction. When I wrote about "the steamdb changes" I guess I was being lazy, using a shorthand. I was thinking about how steamdb changes because the information it is reporting changes. Maybe it would have been better written as something like, "... it's nice that they linked their expanded whitelist as reflected in the steamdb ...."

I appreciate your jumping in to help me, it's these acts of kindness that make the Linux community a---capital "C"---Community.
