A new week means a new list of Steam Deck Verified/Playable games that have gotten the prestigious badge. There were a solid amount of highlights this week too, including Mortal Kombat 1 and Batman: Arkham Knight, so let's get into it:

Verified or Playable games don't automatically mean they work amazing out of the box. Some of these games may require work to optimize and play well. Here are our thoughts on the Verified system and how it can be fixed.

Mortal Kombat 1 (Playable)


Discover a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe created by the Fire God Liu Kang. Mortal Kombat 1 ushers in a new era of the iconic franchise with a new fighting system, game modes, and fatalities!

The game is $69.99 and is rated Playable due to some small in-game text.

Batman: Arkham Knight (Verified)

Touhou: New World (Playable) (SDHQ Review)


Delve back into the world of Touhou in this bullet hell action-RPG adventure! The boundary between Gensokyo and the outside world has been breached, and it falls to Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame to discover why. Level up skills, forge new equipment, and explore Gensokyo to uncover the truth!

The game is $24.99 and is rated Playable due to having a launcher that requires the touchscreen.

Heartbound (Verified/Native Linux)


Heartbound is a non-traditional role-playing game about a boy, his dog, secrets, and sanity. The game does not use the traditional systems of Levels, Experience, or Consumables. Everything is skill-based and combat can change based on your relationships with others or things you have done. Weapons can be found throughout the world and they augment how much damage you deal in certain situations.

The game is $9.99 and is rated Verified.

Six Ages 2: Lights Going Out (Playable)

SixAges2Stock1 1

Life after myths. Death, disaster, despair. A standalone survival-storybook combining interactive fiction and turn-based strategy. The world is ending, and your small clan’s survival depends on how you manage its relationship with the remaining gods and their followers.

The game is $24.99 and is rated Playable due to small in-game text, some text input needs the virtual keyboard, and sometimes showing non-Steam-Deck controller icons.

Daymare: 1994 Sandcastle (Verified)

Daymare1994Stock1 1

Daymare: 1994 Sandcastle is a third-person story-driven survival horror game prequel to the critically acclaimed Daymare: 1998. Step into the shoes of agent Dalila Reyes, a former government spy now in the service of H.A.D.E.S. unit and prepare to face the true horror.
