Game ran flawlessly on:
Linux Mint 18.3
Phenom II x4 965 + AMD HD7770 GPU + 4GB RAM

Very rich and unique story and setting! There is an apparent minimalism and dryness, but if you are just a bit patient and let the story unfold, these make perfect sense and just improve the experience.

Gorgeous graphics and great soundtrack, both also play a part in the story (the music could do it more, though) and make perfect sense in it, not just a random choice...

But it really was the gameplay style that hooked me completely!

The single character action-pause strategy rpg is already a somewhat rare breed, but combined with the skill combination and effect combo system, it reaches an incredible and unexpected depth and flexibility!

It lets you choose the play-style that suits you best (more fast paced shooting, more chess-board chain explosion calculating, etc).

Yet at the same time you are forced to gradually adapt the strategy for each battle and keep exploring and thinkering to overcome these challenges each step of the way.

The game also has great replay value, with an also innovating implementation of hardness control (you can activate and deactivate special effects to make battles harder in order to gain more XP.

Everything just makes *perfect* sense together! Its a masterpiece!

Thank you for your comment about the fan noise issue on the Deck, can't believe people are still defending this and that Valve hasn't addressed this.
