‘Dark Souls 2’ and ‘Psychonauts 2’ officially verified for Steam Deck among others

Steam has strict criteria that must be met for games to be officially verified for the Steam Deck, but a handful of games have joined the growing list.

The list of games is available through SteamDB. Many games are capable of running on the Steam Deck. Some have an easier time than others, as those that run natively on Linux and use the Proton compatibility layer need fewer tweaks to be supported on the Steam Deck.

However, some games that run without issue on the handheld may not receive official verification, for problems such as text being too small on the screen. (via gamingonlinux).
