I am trying to play Wave Rider on Steam but the game glitches out when I open it.

Does anyone know how to get it to run?

  • Are you sure that's not a Windows only game? The games that say "steam" are the ones that run on Ubuntu.

    You may be better off researching or asking about this on WineHQ or some other forum or Q&A site that specifically deals with running Windows-only software using emulation or compatibility layers like Wine or Proton. Windows only software shouldn't be expected to run on Linux flawlessly (or at all). The implementation to get Windows software working on Linux is different depending on the application, so you can't really approach this problem as a generic "How do I play games on Ubuntu". You need to know the quirks for this particular application.

It seems that there aren't any reports of the game on protonDB. That usually means that no one tried to play it on Linux or that the devs haven't created support for the game in proton. The best thing to do is to leave a report; perhaps could it make devs aware of the situation.

As for the Steam page, it is clearly written that only Windows is supported.

The best thing to do is make a report, contact the devs and wait, sadly.
