  1. I have a question, I plan to do this for Doki Doki Literature Club once I switch to Linux. (I've been on and off but now I can exclusively switch now that I have a better network setup so my Windows games will be using Steam In-Home from my Windows gaming laptop) The Windows version actually comes with the Linux version, you would just execute the sh file inside the game's directory. Is there a way I can have it run from Steam natively or do I have to add the script as a non-Steam game and hide the Windows version from the list.
