Game developer revokes a user's Steam key after negative review

Well, here's one game and developer I can now blacklist.

Battle Royale game 'The Culling' goes free to play, a Linux version is available but it has issues (updated)

The developer made an apology video after The Culling 2 bombed pretty much immediately. There's an article on Eurogamer about this. Afterwards, it was about $8 or so (until recently, obviously). I was kind of moved by that honesty, so I bought the game. Didn't really work and I had to use my taskmanager to quit out of the game completely.

What are you playing this weekend?

Thank you, Kyrottimus, lucifertdark, and ageres. The link (https://github.com/Sirmentio/protontricks) worked.

Mr. PinskyGTA V.

Yes, it runs on Steam Play/Proton

Needs a workaround to make it start, and it occasionally starts stuttering after a while, but overall it's a pretty smooth experience.

How? I've seen footage of it running on Linux, but couldn't find anything to tell me how to get past that Social Club loading.

Hollow Knight: Godmaster is the final free content update that's now out

Spud13ycouldn't even get it to launch
Too bad, you're missing out on a seriously sweet game.

I know it may not help you but I run Doom (2016) via Lutris, it installed and played flawlessly first try. Debian sid, KDE, nVidia. I used the install script from Lutris webpage.
(Didn't try Steam Play since Lutris worked perfectly.)

I have it on the Switch. I would probably install PlayOnLinux or Lutris, but my experience is either it doesn't work or where I'm clicking doesn't match with the cursor. I've only tried a few times with each program, but those tries didn't help my opinion regarding them. WoW was the best at working.

Despite promising an Early Access release, Crazy Justice is out only for backers for now and it's rougher than expected

QuoteThe libsteam_api.so is incorrectly referenced, you can copy it in manually to get the game to run, some methods on this thread.



The password won't work. I'll wait a day or so to see if I can login later.

Spud13yI'm going to buy it with the money I refunded from Doom. Looking forward to dying several times.
Why did you refund Doom?

I'm one of a very small amount of people who couldn't even get it to launch. It couldn't find a config file that needs to be generated by at least going to the menu, judging from my research. I've tried using others online, but it didn't work. Since this is two-days new, there's no work around. It's $20, so if it does get fixed in a month or so I would buy it again.

Some thoughts on Valve’s new Steam Play feature and what it means for Linux gaming

My initial pessimistic response is a knee-jerk reaction, which I tend to do a lot. I really hope that time will prove me wrong on that. With games on consoles going the way of streaming, Steam will be my only method of playing games.
