Valve’s new Aperture Desk Job is playable on PC too – Destructoid



You simply want a controller

Roughly a month in the past, coinciding with the launch of the Steam Deck, Aperture Desk Job was launched. In typical Valve trend it serves as a brief tech demo for a brand new piece of {hardware} (much like the Vive or Index), and it as soon as once more reminds us that Valve does make video games. However I’ve additionally seen plenty of confusion as as to if or not it is a Steam Deck unique: it’s not. The Aperture Desk Job PC model is absolutely playable and not using a Steam Deck, simply notice that you just want a controller.

Clocking in at 4.33 GB, the 30-minute-ish tech demo is finest loved on a Steam Deck; however should you haven’t picked one up but, you’ll be able to nonetheless absolutely expertise it for your self on PC. They’re severe about needing a controller, too! In the event you boot it up, amid a warning that “this sport has been optimized for play on the Steam Deck,” you’ll additionally get a “controller required” immediate, rendering you unable to do something till you join one (exterior of menu manipulation).

And that’s just about it! Once more, I can’t rely how many individuals I’ve encountered that thought this was a Steam Deck unique, and have been ignoring it till now. You probably have a spare half-hour this weekend, give it a go!
