We are back with our usual monthly update! Boiling Steam looks at the latest data dumps from ProtonDB to give you a quick list of new games that work (pretty much? see ratings) perfectly with Proton since they were released in September 2023 – all of them work out of the box or well enough with tweaks:
- MY HERO ULTRA RUMBLE: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- Void Crew: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- Void Stranger: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- We Were Here Expeditions: The FriendShip: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- WitchSpring R: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- Heretic’s Fork: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- Rune Factory 3 Special: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store

- NBA 2K24: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- God Of Weapons: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- LunarLux: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
- Fae Farm: ProtonDB Info - Steam Store
My personal favorite in the above list would probably be Witch Spring R - from what I have read about it, it seems to follow the older mechanics of turn-based JRPGs, along with a well written story, the whole being well produced from end to end.
Here’s our new video showcasing all of these games one by one:
You can also watch the above video on Peertube, if you prefer.

Note that someone commented on Youtube that MY HERO ULTRA RUMBLE actually includes some EAC binaries, that are not currently used in the game. If they end up being activated, without specific Linux support, we may see this game becoming unplayable at some point. Just to keep in mind if you intend to spend some time on it.
See you next month!
