It’s a new month, and as usual, Boiling Steam looks at the latest data dumps from ProtonDB to give you a quick list of new games that work (pretty much?) perfectly with Proton since January 2021 - the Median rating indicates that games work either out of the box (5) or well enough with tweaks (4):

2Journey To The Savage Planet95
3NIMBY Rails44.5
4Cloud Climber45
5DANMAKAI: Red Forbidden Fruit35
6Ocean's Heart35

Dyson Sphere Program is like Factorio, in space, and on steroids in terms of scale:

Journey to the Savage Planet takes you to exotic planets to explore, and new life forms to catalog. Looks very well done - now the question is if there is a lot to do in it or not.

**Nimby Rails **is a new take on the construction genre: you can build train tracks, stations, tunnels, directly on actual Google-like maps. It also simulates transfer of passengers and all.

Cloud Climber seems to be a puzzle/adventure game that takes place in high towers in the skies.

DANMAKAI is a bullet hell shoot’em up like only the Japanese make it. If you are feeling lucky…

Ocean’s Heart is a cute looking 2D adventure/RPG game a la (ye olde) Zelda:

And that’s mostly it for this time! I’m really tempted to try out Nimby Rails. How about you?
