Speaking of Valve, I'm worried at how long it's been since the last Proton update. This is leaps and bounds the longest I can remember them going without an update. Even glorious eggroll has only had 1 update in months, and that's mostly a maintenance release. I wonder what the hold up is?

Beyond a Steel Sky - Minor techical quibbles aside, I'm thoroughly enjoying it so far.

Let's hope a new version of Proton is inbound soon. This is the longest I can remember without a new version. I know, I know, I could always install Glorious Eggroll, but I'm lazy.

I don't do early access, but once this is fully released I'll be all over it, it looks like tons of fun.

I've been playing Desperados 3 via Proton. A native Linux version is inbound, but I got impatient. The game gets hung up on the loading screen when it tries to play startup videos, but if you just rename (what I did), move, or delete the folder that has the videos then it starts and plays just fine, on my system, at least. Awesome game. If you played Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, or any of the classic Desperados or Commandos games, then you know what to expect.
