I don’t think anybody expected that the Steam Play/Proton initiative would grow that fast. Yet it’s happening. Just 2 days ago, Valve has updated their Steam Play White-List package, and here’s what new games (39!) are part of the pack now:

- Dungeon of the Endless™
- Endless Road
- Final DOOM
- FlatOut 2
- Glass Masquerade
- Hags Castle
- I’m not a Monster
- LEGO® Star Wars™ III – The Clone Wars™
- Mega Man Legacy Collection
- Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game
- Oh…Sir! The Hollywood Roast
- PAC-MAN™ Championship Edition DX+
- Pathfinder Adventures
- Picross Fairytale: Legend of the Mermaid
- Poker Night at the Inventory
- SEPTEMBER 1999
- STAR WARS™ – Dark Forces
- Samorost 2
- South Park™: The Stick of Truth™
- Star Explorers
- Starless Night
- The Curse of Monkey Island
- The House of Da Vinci
- The Room
- Tiny Bridge: Ratventure
- Year Walk
If I had to pick something out of this list, I would definitely highlight Dark Souls III. It’s such a major game in the genre that it’s huge news to see it white-listed.
I am also recommending STEINS;GATE. It’s not as well known to everyone (especially outside of Japan), but this is a very, very good visual novel with a strong otaku/sci-fi vibe. Very entertaining and the writing is fun from beginning to end.
They even ended up making an anime out of it, which is great, too. It has a different vibe and style, but it’s also very good. I recommend it as well.
Great job by Valve, Codeweavers and every contributor to the project. Such news are always awesome.
