There I am, in bed about to fall asleep when my phone lights up as I forgot to put it on silent. Thankfully so, as it turns out Valve just expanded the Steam Play whitelist and that's always a bit exciting.

What is the whitelist? These are titles that Valve are confident enough that work out of the box with no additional configuration required. You don't need to turn any extra options on, they should just be click and play like any other Linux game on Steam.

The list has some interesting titles in it as seen on SteamDB, here's the full list of new titles sorted in alphabetical order for easy viewing:

  1. 12 Labours of Hercules VII: Fleecing the Fleece (Platinum Edition)
  2. A Raven Monologue
  3. AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity
  4. Acid Nimbus
  5. Alien Shooter 2: Reloaded
  6. Bullet Candy
  7. DARK SOULS™ III
  8. Dungeon of the Endless™
  9. Endless Road
  10. Final DOOM
  11. FlatOut 2
  12. Glass Masquerade
  13. Hags Castle
  14. I’m not a Monster
  15. Jamestown
  16. LEGO® Star Wars™ III - The Clone Wars™
  17. Mega Man Legacy Collection
  18. Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game
  19. Nidhogg
  20. Oh...Sir! The Hollywood Roast
  21. PAC-MAN™ Championship Edition DX+
  22. Pathfinder Adventures
  23. Picross Fairytale: Legend of the Mermaid
  24. Poker Night at the Inventory
  25. Primordia
  26. SEPTEMBER 1999
  27. STAR WARS™ - Dark Forces
  28. STEINS;GATE
  29. Samorost 2
  30. South Park™: The Stick of Truth™
  31. Star Explorers
  32. Starless Night
  33. The Curse of Monkey Island
  34. The House of Da Vinci
  35. The Room
  36. Tiny Bridge: Ratventure
  37. Wuppo
  38. Year Walk
  39. Zoombinis

Some rather varied titles available there, on top of all the titles previously added. Good to see Valve reasonably quickly add more, as things do progress forward with projects like DXVK (which forms part of Steam Play) quite quickly.

I'm assuming they won't be adding anything on the store to indicate Steam Play, until they've done a some more rounds on adding to the whitelist. They want it to make an impact of course, so the bigger they can do this the better it's going to be.

Will you be checking out any of the newer titles added? The LEGO game is tempting, since my son would probably absolutely love it and there's simply no sign of any LEGO game of that sort making its way to Linux officially through a proper port so this is the next best thing.

Also, if you missed them, be sure to check out our previous interviews about Steam Play. I spoke to the creator of DXVK, Subset Games (FTL, Into the Breach), Ethan Lee (game porter) and more.

Update: All titles now link directly to store pages.

Hmm, I debate getting Nidhogg. Played it before with the missus, and while I enjoyed it immensely, she became immensely annoyed with me XD (I mean, why would they give you a throw sword button if you're not supposed to use it? )

LEGO® Star Wars™ III - The Clone Wars™


wait what! I have it on the Wii (I have most ). I have zero issue with rebuying as they are great and the kids love them BUT Lego Incredible is giving me issues so I am reluctant

That is awesome that Dark Souls III made the list. Such a great game. Been playing it a lot recently (>100h), but to be honest, there's a performance issue that sometimes causes the framerate to take a big dip after loading screens and as far as I know it's not been fixed so I'm not sure why it's being white listed.

Am I imagining things or did Jamestown and Reckless Disregard for Gravity already have Linux ports around someplace? Humble, maybe? I'm absolutely certain I've played the latter on Linux at least (and been terrible at it).
Nezchan 14 November 2018 at 1:16 am UTC
Also, good to see Primordia on the list. One of the best adventure games I ever played. Somehow they made the wise-cracking sidekick who by rights should have been the most annoying thing ever somehow acceptable and even genuinely funny. If that's not a gaming miracle, I don't know what is.

Jamestown at least had a Linux port but, if I remember correctly, it hasn't been updated since its Humble launch and isn't on Steam.
Nezchan 14 November 2018 at 1:27 am UTC
Oh, I see where I went wrong. AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity isn't out for Linux, but
AaAaAA!!! - For the Awesome is. That's where I got confused.

And I just checked, I still have access to a Linux version of Jamestown on Humble.

If you're interested, "LEGO Batman: The Videogame" works flawlessly for me in Proton (and has a "Gold" rating on ProtonDB due to it requiring the "PROTON_NO_ESYNC=1 %command%" launch command). Most of the LEGO games should work (with that command, most likely), except for "LEGO The Incredibles" and "LEGO DC Super-Villains" which require too much fiddling for comfort.
