Renowned Explorers: International Society

Tested with version from It can be played with steam-run, but it needs some libraries that are not normally included in Steam's FHS environment. One way to solve this is to add an overlay:

  nixpkgs.overlays = [
    (self: super: {
      steam-run = (super.steam.override {
        extraLibraries = pkgs: with pkgs;
            (sndio.overrideAttrs (old: {
              postFixup = old.postFixup + ''
                ln -s $out/lib/ $out/lib/

Adding libxkbcommon, mesa, and wayland is straightforward. The game expects the shared library to exist, so we need to create a symbolic link after the installation of sndio.
