Shadows Over Loathing adventure RPG game hits hard on the Linux Steam Deck via Windows PC and Mac. Which is the work from the comedic minds of developer Asymmetric. Which is live now on Steam with 97% Very Positive reviews.

The stick-figure Loathing universe expands with the surprise release of Shadows Over Loathing. While offering players a horror-tinged comedy adventure RPG. Due to transport you to the shady side of an already black and white world.
Following five years of under-wraps development, this successor to 2017’s West of Loathing. As well as the long-running MMORPG The Kingdom of Loathing is available now.

The game is made with Unity. It runs very well with Proton, with no plans for a native Linux version right now.

While this may be disheartening news for Shadows Over Loathing, it’s not. Previously we had full cross platform support from developer Asymmetric. Now the studio is putting Valve’s Proton support into place. Ideally working around any platform specific issues related to Unity 3D. But offering Linux players Platinum level support via Proton. Plus the games Steam Deck Verified too.

Shadows Over Loathing — Trailer

Monsters, mobsters, and mysteries. Explore a sprawling open world chock full of danger, quests, puzzles, and stick figures. Shadows Over Loathing is single-player comedy adventure RPG. One that also takes place in the prohibition era of the Loathing universe.

Your Uncle Murray needs your help at his antique shop in Ocean City. Upon your arrival, the old man is nowhere to be found. Your search into his disappearance and the artifacts he’s been collecting takes a turn. While you stumble across some shadowy plots (and a bunch of squirming eldritch tentacles). These also threaten to bring about the end of the world.

Shadows Over Loathing is a vastly larger game than its Wild West cousin. Featuring genuinely baffling 1920s slang, strategic turn-based combat (but only if you want it). There is also inappropriate fishing, cursed antiques, and a corrupt government to be overthrown at your leisure. Plus an infinitely tall building, sentient math, and much more. See how many enemies you can stuff into a phone booth as the athletic Pig Skinner. Control the curds and whey of the cosmos as the cunning Cheese Wizard. Or march to the beat of your own hidden purposes as the hip Jazz Agent. Just watch out for those non-Euclidean horrors lurking just beyond the edges of the screen.

Shadows Over Loathing adventure RPG game has a regular price of $23 USD. But with a 15% launch discount through November 18th, it’s priced at $19.54 USD / £16.99 / 18,69€ on Steam. Offering Linux Steam Decks support via Proton with Windows PC. Along with support for Mac.
