Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/204450/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (204450) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.

    Tested with the Steam version. Game launches fine and does not show intro videos, though it makes the game run poorly for a few seconds on startup.
