When I launch The Sims 3 on Windows via Steam, the colors are brightened when you press shift+tab to bring up the steam overlay. Conversely, on Linux (specifically, Ubuntu and derivatives, with Valve's Proton 4.11) this behavior is reversed - the game is darker, but the Steam overlay is normal.

On Linux, this color issue is fixed by playing in windowed mode, but I dislike playing in windowed. Is there some fix for full screen colors on Linux?

    This sounds like an issue with gamma correction. If the game has an option like "use desktop gamma", try to enable it. – Nolonar Aug 6 at 18:33
