Steam: sales on Devolver Digital games, also a brand new game on sale


In addition to the free PC game given by Epic Games, during the day today Steam has proposed a selection of discounts on the Devolver Digital catalog. The titles offered in discount by Valve are different, including a very recent one, which debuted yesterday.

Among the discounted games we find real hits on the market of independent video games. The Devolver Digital games discounted on Steam are in fact different. Among the latest releases we find Inscryption, available with a 30% discount, Weird West, available at 25% less than the list price, Death's Door and Shadow Warrior 3, both available at 40% less and Loop Hero, available at 67% less than the original price. Several virtual reality games are also on sale and if you have a VR viewer this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Last, but not least, is Trek to Yomi. The game, which debuted yesterday on PC and console, is in fact available at a discount. A small price cut, of 10% compared to the list price, was applied by the latest game by Leonard Menchiari, author of RIOT, one of the most successful independent titles and which has also caused a great stir over the years.

How to Play PC Games on a Chromebook with Steam

Chromebooks are turning into gaming laptops. Don’t laugh! I’m serious! Now that Valve’s Steam platform is in an early alpha phase on Chrome OS, Chromebooks are suddenly getting access to a lot of PC games, moving beyond the small smattering of Android apps they could play before. These games aren’t streamed over they cloud, either—they play directly on the device using its available hardware.

I know what you’re thinking: gaming Chromebooks don’t exist, and there aren’t even Chrome OS devices with discrete graphics cards. That’s true, and for those reasons, only select devices with higher-end components will gain Steam support for now. To further set your expectations, those premium devices will only run less-demanding games, and only at 1080p or lower graphics settings.

While it’s fair to say your Chromebook won’t replace a proper gaming desktop or console, with Steam support, it gains access to a vast library of games. And as we learned with the Steam Deck, many of those titles, particularly the older ones, will run just fine with integrated graphics—no need for an RTX 3080 GPU.

If you own a compatible Chromebook and would like to play PC games via Steam, this guide will walk you through the steps. Just keep in mind that Steam support on Chrome OS is in an early alpha build, so doing so before its official public release is something of a risk.
