sarmadIs there a way in Steam to search for games and filter out the ones that don't work on Linux, neither natively nor through Steam Play?

Look here for Steamplay compatibility:

Wow, nice. It's a bummer that Valve isn't providing the filtering itself. I mean, they already have the white listing feature, so why don't thy give an option to filter search result by whitelisting status?

Valve have released some interesting statistics about controller use
26 September 2018 at 11:47 pm UTC

It's been many years since the Steam Controller has released and on Linux it still doesn't work out-of-the-box, at least on Ubuntu it doesn't. You always have to tweak system configuration files to get the controller to work. In addition to that, Steam Controller doesn't hot plug into the game, you always have to restart the game to get it to recognize the controller and if you leave the controller idle for a while that it powers off you'll have to restart the game as well, though I'm not sure if other controllers work any better.

Saulsecsiramirez Guess you can say this is picking up steam. ?

I think we can safely say that. After just a week there are already 771 issues created and 26 pull requests. You can't easily find projects with this much activity so early.

Interesting to see if they can actually pull it off with that kind of small budget, but given that they got this much done already before the campaign started I guess it's doable. The AI seems to be quite primitive at this stage so hopefully they'll improve upon it a lot down the road.

It seems to me that they have Linux enthusiasts among the team, given that they are promising Linux support despite the low budget and also promising DRM free.

We don't always get history professors approving game scenarios, so this one is quite interesting. Looking forward to it.

SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis Classics now officially supports Linux with a big update & price drop

noxI'm talking about a game that forgot to add a SteamOS logo to their game, while supporting linux officially and properly.

EDIT: Let me clarify. There is no steamos icon, but the game still works perfectly on linux (if you already had it before the linux support was added you might need to reinstall it to make it work).

Personally I dislike it when they don't have a proper linux logo for their games, but at least they mention the fact that they support linux in the patch notes, so I'm satisfied.

Thanks for the clarification. It's really stupid that they don't add the proper icons. If I didn't come across this article, or didn't bother posting on it to get clarification I would've never known that it actually supports Linux. How do they expect to make sales on Linux with this situation?

nox
sarmadSo, did this turn out to be false? Do we have any word on whether this is actually coming for Linux?
I see the article saying "is now officially available on Linux" but I have no idea what it's talking about. The game is definitely not available on Linux. If the author is indeed seeing it available for Linux then it means it's region locked. I live in Canada.
It's most definitely available on linux:

So, it sounds like it's region locked then.

Mind explaining what you are talking about?

I don't own the game so I haven't tried actually installing it, but they don't show the SteamOS icon on its store page. This is confusing, does it have some sort of unadvertised Linux support? If it does support Linux, why isn't the store showing that?

Fifa or PES. Those definitely has a big market, and are definitely an area Linux lacks.
