SUPERHOT saw an update recently to show "a bit more love towards Linux players"

stanInteresting; I believe that’s why I removed the game from my wishlist months ago. But does it support bépo? (accented characters…)
Also it’s still way too expensive compared to the less than 2 hours playtime…

Well... I don't know for bépo but now you can, through a GUI, set a key for a specific action (it's a very light FPS in this field, you only need 5 keys outside left and right mouse button, 4 for moving and 1 for action) so I don't think that bépo is a problem (AZERTY isn't as far I can tell). There is definitively more than 2 hours worth of gaming I think (the "story" - that try to break the "4th wall" without succeeding - is definitively not worth buying the game ihmo, but the gameplay definitively is), but I do not recommended the game at full price (imho it's more < 15€).

The EU is going after Valve and others for "geo-blocking", a statement from Valve

lunixGames are not cheaper in EU member countries that are not in the eurozone - that's the problem, the *lack* of sufficient regional pricing.

Sorry, you're right (read steamdb data far too quickly)! In which currency peoples from countries that are EU members but not in Eurozone buy their games on Steam?

Hmmmm... I may be wrong (and perhaps misunderstand some comments posted above) but I don't think that this is related to Valve's regional pricing policy (i.e. it has nothing to do with the fact that games on Steam are cheaper in EU member states that are not in Eurozone, which has generally the highest price looking at Steamdb data).

MayeulCIt only happens if you have a locale that sorts differently than the one on the developer's machines, though. I believe I used FR_fr.utf-8 (on slackware) back then.

Strange as I should have been on Fr_fr.utf-8 too when I played the game (maybe it has been fixed, I've only played SUPERHOT in 2017 I think).

Edit: worth mentioning that a previous update (1.0.9 from January 2019) brings key bindings support which is a great improvment (previously I was forced to change my keyboard layout from "fr" to "en" before launching the game)! (I lost all my progression when migrating from Ubuntu 16.04 to Kubuntu 18.04 as the game as no Steam Cloud backup and I forgot to backup that on my side... will have to play the story again )

MayeulCIIRC, the story is broken if you don't set the LC_COLLATE=C environment variable (with the game depending on locale-specific file sorting to pick the next level). I wonder if they fixed that as well?
I backed this game, but I admit I have so much fun stuff to play, and so little time, that I haven't gotten around to finish this one.

I don't have any environment variable set and managed to play the full story (almost, never finished the last level... shame on me, finishing the boring - ihmo - story is the only way to enjoy the game freely) so maybe it has been fixed.

I've enjoyed what I've played of Shelter 2 and Paws so far (mainly because of the graphics)!

Wishlisted! It reminds me The Red Strings Club which is a good pixelart, cyberpunk game with a nice multi-ending story (if you don't go mad when there is some LGBTQ themes in it)!

Purple Library GuyI've heard of "le canard enchaine"; how many French periodicals named after ducks are there?

To my knowledge there is only two now, Le Canard Enchaîné ("The Chained Duck", in French "un canard" - a duck - is an argot word for a newspaper), an old (1915, born against censure during World War I) independent (no advertisements and privately owned by its own employees) satirical investigation newspaper, which is obviously the most famous of the two and Canard PC (which is named after the first... and a toilet detergent "Canard WC" - Toilet Duck in English - because in French "WC" and "PC" are quasi homophones).

The french independent magazine Canard PC gives the game a good review (7/10) in its last issue (n° 393 that will be fully available next month)!
