I'd like to mention Pixel Boy and the Ever Expanding Dungeon. It's a top-down twin-stick shooter/dungeon crawler with mix and match style weapons that you can keep stacking modifiers to. [url]http://store.steampowered.com/app/263080/[/url] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQrB4jueUhw The 3D activates without any trouble, but there's something really wacky going on with the shadows and specular lighting. It's a damn shame, as the general look of the game is great for toyification.

One More Dungeon plays perfectly in 3D, in needs to be on a Stereo Profile(3D-Hub Player or make it's own) for some reason adding the Stereo Flag Globally doesn't work for this one... you can grab it in the Mega Pick & Mix Bundle over on BundleStars. I don't know why I love these old Doom/Hexen-looking games in 3D. :) [url]https://www.bundlestars.com/en/promotions/mega-pick-mix-bundle[/url]

Lol. I don't even think 3D could save that game... I meant the old school 2D/spite characters and 3D levels though. I've tried to get a few to work in 3D, like Delver, but never really have much luck with them... still not sure why I like them so much but I do... Being able to play Ors & Elves, Wolfenstein RPG and Doom RPG in 3D would be amazing! :)

From what I played The Cursed Revolver plays great in 3D, all you have to do is add -window-mode exclusive to the Launch Options to enable 3D, the HUD is at screen Depth but the reticle/cursor and HP tags are at their respective Depths.

Got Headlander game and fix - looks great in 3d but can't seem to adjust the HUD to screen depth? Have changed the x constant value to 0.0 but it had no effect?
