New Games You Can Play With Proton – Jan 2020

Here we go with the list of games that have never seen any report until January 2020… usually this means new games that recently saw a release, but not always. Without further due, here’s the list of such titles that appeared for the first time in ProtonDB in January 2020 (Gold+ indicates how many ratings where Gold or Platinum for that game):

The most popular one was Lightmatter, a puzzle game where you need to avoid shadows since they kill you…

If you enjoy Dragon Ball, the latest episode in the series, Kakarot, seems to be working just fine on Proton as well:

The old and maddening Commandos 2 is back (I admit I have never had the patience for having to memorize actions and click as fast as possible to pass some levels) in an HD edition, and it looks like it runs fine as long as you run a protontrick command to install dotnet:

Oxygen Not Included has a native client on Linux, but it looks like some mods make the Linux client crash, while they work fine if you run the game with Proton. Hence the newer Proton reports…

Nasty Rogue is a new game, a roguelite using Voxel graphics (a la Minecraft). Apparently it runs out of the box (not a Linux-related video below):

If you like roguelites, you are in luck this month as Spirits Abyss works pretty much flawlessly as long as you activate the WINED3D flag in the launcher (not a Linux-related video below). Note that this game is not super recent but 3-4 months old apparently.

And that’s about it. Maybe not a very exciting month in terms of releases, right after the holidays!
