It is reported on January 13 that the release of the Steam Deck handheld is only a few weeks away, and Valve is also actively making the final adaptation.
Recently, Valve’s classic game “Portal 2” received the Steam Deck handheld verification , becoming the first game to receive Deck Verified certification.
In order to help Steam Deck users find playable games, Valve has launched Deck Verified certification, which is divided into 4 certification levels .
“VERIFIED” with a green circle on the hook: This game has passed all compatibility tests and provides an excellent experience for players on Steam Deck.
“PLAYABLE” with an exclamation point in a yellow circle: The game will work on the Deck, but requires extra work and manual debugging by the user.
“UNSTOPPORTED” with a greyed out forbidden icon: This game is not playable due to incompatibility with Proton or specific hardware.
“UNKNOW” with a grey question mark: This game has not been tested for compatibility.
The steam_deck_compatibility information field shows that Portal 2 has been marked with a certification logo , but the certification icon has not yet appeared in the Steam store.
We understands that certified games can use an on-screen keyboard, support Steam Deck’s native resolution, and fully support its native operating system, and players can use a controller to navigate their menus. Only certified games will be displayed on the first page of the Steam Deck built-in store, but players will still be able to view the entire game store by browsing or searching.
