Oddly, I only own one of these games. UNTIL NOW

It has cross platform cloud saves from my experience, but I don't know if the Proton saves work with that

Quoting: gradyvuckovicThis is one of those reasons why I can't stand EGS exclusives. This game was always destined to have a native Linux build but it was delayed by a full year because of the EGS exclusivity contract, limiting it to a store that doesn't support Linux, hence there was no way to provide a native Linux version even if there was one.

Not only does that delay a Linux native game, it means many gamers will have bought this game on a platform which does not and will likely never have available the native Linux version of the game.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but in the case of this game specifically, I backed the crowdfund and Triband gave me a Steam code back when it was released on EGS so I have been playing a native Linux version for a year now.

They're also about to release another game very soon, Mesmer, which takes place in the Teslagrad/WttW universe and will have native Linux support

I really like the license usage from other game services, but it really comes down to data usage for me. I share my internet with my whole family (6 people who all actively use it) and until my ISP gives me more data at a reasonable rate, I need to hold off on this kind of service. Besides, only about 60 of my Steam games are on the service anyway

Have you played Slayaway Camp? A killer-puzzle game that's genuinely good fun

That will be useful for me, I reinstalled my system and it didn't seem that cloud saving was working for me, I lost all my progress

Quoting: NanobangI own it, but haven't yet played it. I will say to anyone interested in this game, give Party Hard a look-see as well. A bit more fluid and bloody, it is nonetheless a puzzle game at heart, trying to kill as many partygoers as you can in an increasingly elaborate set of parties. It's available on Steam and Humble.

I like both games, but Slayaway Camp is a very strict puzzle game in that many of the scenarios only have one solution, whereas Party Hard is more flexible in how you deal with the deaths. Slayaway Camp's humor is also a much more campy on the nose homage to the horror movie genre

It's working great for me on Manjaro Gnome, I haven't seen any OS specific bugs so far.

I was using SteamOS on my htpc for a while for is sheer simplicity of interface (it's just straight to BPM), which makes it really easy for even my little kids to load up a game they want, but Valve seriously hasn't updated it since June. Luckily, someone put the SteamOS compositor on AUR so now I get all the latest stable updates and the simple interface.

(BTW, I tried just using BPM within manjaro gnome and I always had window focus problems, so it just doesn't switch smoothly enough to work without a mouse handy.)
