Feral Interactive Are Teasing New Linux Games UPDATED
Posted , 25 July 2014 at 5:44 pm UTC / 10020 views
Update: It seems Feral jumped the gun a bit on this, and have removed Linux from the page, but we will get more info on new Linux ports from them soon.

When they put new info up it will differentiate between Mac & Linux too.

Original article blow:
Feral Interactive are little devils as they sent out a link earlier to a teaser page of new ports for Mac & Linux, but what ones will be on Linux? It's cheeky as not all games that get announced on it will be for Linux...yet.

On this page you can see some weird little puzzle that will give hints as to what games will come next.

All aboard the speculation train choochoo!

A Bioshock or Borderlands game would be my top picks, so what about yours? Let us know in the comments.

In both cases the original games (Bioshock 1, 2, and Borderlands 1 and their expansions) where brought to Mac by Feral. The sequels (Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands 2) where brought to Mac by Aspyr.

Well, that thingy on their site was thoroughly annoying. Guess they don't really want me to be excited for upcoming games then.

Interesting little puzzle they've given us. The first two games 3 games are spelled out, but the rest have just hints. Here's what I've found so far:

The old tapestry portrait is of constantine xi palaiologos of the Byzantine Empire with the caption "Starship Enterprise?"

I don't know anything about "The New Stone Age" one, save for that the icon is obviously an American flag with the word "powerful", but image search turns up nothing.

The "Harmful Elements" picture appears to be canine distemper, a disease which affects dogs

The "Pathetic Humans" picture turns up Operation Flashpoint upon image search, but I'm not convinced.


So, get on that, penguins

Just so you all know.. most of those games are pre-existing ones that where put there prior to when Feral starting to support Linux (they started after receiving a Steam Machine from Valve). It's unknown how many of those are in the works for Linux. Especially "Pathetic Humans" that's been on there as coming soon to the Mac for years now and has been moved up and down the radar a few times.

As the article says "It's cheeky as not all games that get announced on it will be for Linux...yet." So for Linux it's not only a guessing game as to what the games are but which ones will be on Linux. In other words it's like Feral is saying "We will now start to put Linux games on our upcoming radar as well".

BTW, it's good to have another set of eyes guessing what those games might be. Mac gamers been guessing and in some cases figuring out what those games are for years now. http://www.insidemacgames.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=37476&st

Pathetic Earthlings reminds me of Flash Gordon (Ming the Merciless). However, it also reminds me of this older console exclusive title

The image shown for this game also reminds me of the game's art style.
