“The Linux version is now live!” – flibitijibibo
While good news, there are some caveats for Steam Deck players.
“We are aware some Steam Deck users are experiencing intermittent crashes. Regrettably, we have not been able to isolate the cause. But we are hoping the native Linux build will help stabilize things. Please note that until the native Linux version is re-Verified on the Steam Deck, fingers crossed because we’ve tested it. Only the Proton version will be available to Steam Deck owners. To get around this for now, in the game’s properties on Steam, navigate to ‘Compatibility’. Enable the ‘Force the use of a specific Steam Play Compatibility tool’ checkmark. And choose ‘Steam Linux Runtime’ from the drop down.”
