Valve seems to be working on a compatibility system for games on Linux


Traditionally, gaming has never been a strong point for Linux, whose presence in the gamer market is practically nila fact that causes developers not to invest much interest in said platform either, in favor of Windows and its popularity.

Valve could be working on fixing this, because apparently in the code of the client files of Steamunused snippets have been found that point to a system compatibility tool for launching games on operating systems other than the ones the game is originally designed to launch.

This system would be called Steam Playand would probably come to the rescue of the Steam Machinewhich works on Steam OSsystem based on Linuxhave seen their presence in the world of video games quite diminished.

We do not even know if this will become a system functional, as well as if it will work in all games, since it is expected that the users themselves will have the opportunity to test the games through the compatibility modules, even if these are not on the supported list, and thus help increase the list of games that work.

We will have to wait to see if this works out, because if it is true, It will be a breath of fresh air to the free platform.
