Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.

Deep breaths commander, there's a new UFO sighting on the Feral Interactive port radar indicating a new Linux port is on the way.

Here's the new teaser:

Begin your wild guessing game. I literally don't have a clue, but then I never manage to guess them correctly. Although, honestly I try not to dig too far as when I do I end up thinking about all sorts of wild titles.

We've still got Life is Strange: Before the Storm and Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia yet to come from Feral, so another showing up is quite exciting news. They've ported so many top quality games to Linux now, it's really quite incredible and it's pleasing to see this continue!

Quoting: Duke TakeshiAlso the palace of Lucifer, which is on the painting, was built by Mulciber, which is also a weapon name in Borderlands. However I think it is unlikely that they port Borderlands 1, since it's really quite old :D

Borderlands Remaster is coming to consoles and Windows https://www.gamespot.com/articles/borderlands-remaster-for-ps4-xbox-one-and-pc-likel/1100-6459323/
I'm a big fan of the Borderlands games so I hope this theory is true.
Feral already ported the first Borderlands but just for Mac.
Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel were ported to Linux by Aspyr.

There's an upcoming game (currently in early access) with the title "Angels Fall First". [link to steam page] -- though I'm not sure if Feral's likely to announce early access indie titles on their radar.

There also exists a platformer called 'Pandemonium' from the mid-90s. I guess that's unlikely as well.

Barbie and her inner demons, obviously! Looking so forward to this!

Quoting: loggeAnyhow, bayonetta would be cool.

I hope it isn't. I bought Bayonetta 2 for the Seitch, and it came with the digital version of the first game, and I can't even find myself playing it unless I was really bored. It is kind of a shit game.

I would bet a new Postal Game. The city in it is literally called Paradise Lost.

I also came to the conclusion that it should be Hellblade. It seems a bit too obvious, though, but I can't find another way to connect the word "pandemonium" to a certain game. In Hellblade, Senua atually travels to the nordic hell (Helheim) to defeat Hela, which is kind of the nordic equivalent of Satan/Lucifer.

Another indicator is that both Feral and Ninjia Theory (the developers and publishers of the game) are UK-based. Feral usually has good connections within the UK game developing scene (for example with creative assembly in Horsham or square enix europe in London, Codemasters in Southam, ...). Also it's a recent AAA title with positive reviews and a lot of linux requests.

The game is also developed with Unreal Engine, which should make the porting not too hard.

The nordic Hel doesn't really have much in common with Satan/Lucifer at all, much less the one that appears in Paradise Lost.

Also "Hela" is the Marvel Comics name for her. Traditionally her name is the same as the realm she's associated with, which isn't on fire and isn't meant for punishing people (she was appointed to her position, to provide lodging and accommodation for people who died in mundane circumstances like old age or sickness, as opposed to Glorious Battle™).

Mind you, how she's portrayed in video games does tend to fit the more familiar Christian pattern of someone evil who mistreats the dead and meddles in the world of the living.

From experience I wouldn't take the Feral radar hints too literal. For example, last time it was a Garibaldi biscuit and one would have to guess that the Arcadia Bay area of Life Is Strange was influenced by an actual town in Oregon called Garibaldi. The game actually doesn't have anything to do with biscuits.
This can also mean that the teased game has nothing to do with hell and/or apocalyptic settings. As I pointed out earlier, "Pandemonium" is also a famous rollercoaster, so it could as well mean they're porting planet coaster or whatever.

I just summarized various facts (e.g. UK-based cooperation between Feral and Ninja Theory, use of Unreal Engine, some kind of mythological underworld setting) which in my opinion fit together well to bet on Hellblade.

In this case both hints, the painting and "proud seat of Lucifer" point to "Pandemonium" (it is the name of the painting and the proud seat of Lucifer in the mentioned epic poem "Paradise Lost"). I have, however, not yet found a really good link between any game and that word...my guess with Hellblade was because Senua actually goes into the "hell" of her mythology to save the soul of her lover. The name "Hela" I used, because it's her name in the game...I don't know much about nordic mythology :D

In that Feral radar - As well as the Garibaldi clue, there was also the quote clue: "It's just a shot away" which appears in Rolling Stones' song 'Gimme Shelter'. One song inspiration was that people were scurrying for shelter from a rain storm. The game suggestion : Life Is Strange: Before The Storm - was successfully guessed based on that clue, by qptain Nemo.

Meanwhile, another little comment based on your observation: John Milton's Paradise Lost is something of the theme of the whole clue... and "What is John Milton famous for?"

Paradise Lost is regarded as the greatest "epic" poem in English. Taking it a bit less literally, does this hint suggest that the game might be related to "Epic Games"? Maybe - Fortnite ? Hehe!
