There are plenty of games running on the Steam Deck, but apparently an issue with the backend has made it easy for developers to accidentally crash a game.
The steam cover it’s something of a threat to other competitors in the mobile gaming community, especially given that it’s not just a console, but essentially a fully portable PC. With Valve updating the device to make it better, like increasing battery life or adding new features, it shows signs of being something that could usher in the next era of on-the-go gaming. However, there have been some issues with some games crashing, but apparently that has to do with the system itself, and not the studios.
That’s according to a recent report from PC Gamer. It seems a number of Steam Deck users have become concerned lately, when it turned out that a specific game might have been blocked from use on the Deck, suggesting that players were unable to install it, although some have confirmed that it is actually possible to copy the games. game files on the device. This is apparently something Valve says is due to a mistake on their part, rather than something the developer did intentionally.
For the curious, the game in question is the Demon Gaze EXTRA dungeon crawler, a remake of demon gaze, which originally released in 2013 exclusively for PlayStation Vita before being ported to PS4 and Nintendo Switch. In an email to PC Gamer, Valve said it added a feature to the Steam Deck that allowed studios and developers to “tag certain content/decks” to make it more relevant to customers. However, this has led some developers to accidentally label things incorrectly. Valve has since updated the system, which should make the problem non-existent in the future.
Perhaps the biggest selling point for the device is that it allows people to play PC games on the go. Since there are already so many great games for the Steam Deck, and more will be added, it would be detrimental to the company, as well as its partners, to accidentally make something unavailable for the system when it would otherwise be supported.
Until now, the history of the steam cover is one that seems to be full of successes. It’s not perfect by any means, and Gabe and company are constantly working to improve it, but it’s a big step up from previous hardware efforts Valve have tried. With this issue now fixed, it should be much easier for studios to correctly label their games without causing confusion.
