    Aperture Desk Job is a Windows game but runs on the Steam Deck via Steam Play (Proton)
    The store page lists it as having a native Linux version and according to SteamDB that native version is the one that gets installed automatically on Deck "recommended_runtime: native"

          We need a 1500 Megawatt Aperture Science Heavy Duty Super-Colliding Super Button in our SteamDeck!

            Can't wait to see LinuxGameCast review this thing to see how many chairs it rates.

              Sorry, I bowed to pressure from various online friends to try a couple of the "walking simulators" that were popular at the time (Gone Home and Esther something something, and something else, I forget) and found them tedious, bland and eminently... well, forgettable.

              Never again.

                Its a smart little game, it serves the same purpose as minesweeper did for Windows. Familiarizing people with the control set of the console, or in the case of minesweeper teach people to use the mouse.

                  Will it be also available for classic Linux Steam?

                    It already is. I played it on my Linux laptop, with DualShock 4 controller. I never used gyro before in a game so that was kinda cool.
