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.

HoriI hope that Dark Souls 1 and 2 will also be ported/whitelisted in the future.
Dark Souls 1 Remastered has major game engine bugs and is basically unfixable, so probably not.

And what about Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition? I mean yes its no longer for Sale because of the Remaster but many still own it.

The reason I've a virtual machine setup is because of Dark Souls III. It's a fantastic game, highly recommend it now that it can be played without any of the hassle I had to go through.

"Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition" works great on Proton but can not be whitelisted because of this issue: cinematics do not play.
A lot of games could be whitelisted on Steamplay if only Wine/Proton could play cinematics in WMV format.
An issue is opened on Proton github for Windows Media Player implementation:
Add .wmv file playback support to Proton. #1464

Jamestown is such an odd one on this list. I just tried the native version I have on my system and it still seems to run just fine. I guess it's a case where the native port happened for a bundle, but the dev has no interest in supporting the port.

Seems I have little excuse not to try South Park The Stick of Truth now. I've been wanting to for a long time, but the lack of a Linux port has held me back.
Oh, and Lego - you can never go wrong with Lego!

You do if you step on one.

Dungeon of the Endless, yay! One of my essential games to run through wine, now officially supported by valve. Hope the other games by the studio (Endless Legend and Endless Space 1 and 2 ) also make it eventually.

Also excited about steins;gate, lack of Linux support has held me back from buying and playing so hopefully this might be one of the first proton games where I count as a Linux sale (so far I have only played games I already owned, mostly from before I switched to Linux full time).

mylkawhy not shadow of the tomb raider and hitman 2 ?

also batman origin,styx, flame and the flood and prey

I hope they do not add shadow of the tomb raider and hitman 2. Games we may get ports of should not be purchased using steam play imo.

The full version of Hitman II has Denuvo so is unlikely to work via Proton at the moment. Best to wait for a port.
YoRHa-2B 14 November 2018 at 11:33 am UTC
Why do people insist on Denuvo not working on Wine? It's true that some recent-ish games don't run, but pretty much all Denuvo games that came out in the past couple of months work just fine.

Hitman II has a new version of Denuvo and whilst the training mission works, I'm not willing to shell out just yet to see if the main campaign works!
