AGS and The new console Steam Deck
« on: 15 Jul 2021, 19:20 »
Steam has just announced the release of its Steam Deck console.

I don't think anyone missed it.
I think this is great news for the world of indie game developers.

Okay now we'll have to see how to configure all this on AGS for buttons etc.
What do you think of this console on your side?


On the other hand, the bad news: it seems that it is only Linux games that run on it ...
and I rarely had the opportunity to run a game compiled in LINUX under AGS on my side ...

I already predicted this back in 2019:

It's a bit of a reoccurring pattern dating back to at least 2011 with the OnLive.
I'm still wondering what I'm missing from 2017 though.  ???

(Also, I'm not kidding about me having predicted this. If you go to the webcomic and hover the mouse over the comic, you get a little bonus joke, this one saying "I can't wait for the next big thing to come out in 2021". I love being able to perfectly predict stuff like this.)

EDIT: Uh, having looked around a bit on the forum. It seems as though I probably should've posted this response on this thread where it would've been more appropriate. So could a moderator move my response over there. Sorry.
