Feral Interactive are teasing a new Linux port, time to start guessing

By - | Views: 24,025

If it wasn't enough that Feral Interactive are porting Life is Strange 2, Total War: WARHAMMER II and Total War: THREE KINGDOMS to Linux they're also teasing another new Linux port. They also only asked a few days ago to send port requests to them so they're really quite busy for us lately.

Popping up on their port teaser radar today was this "CRYPTIC OBSCURITY":

It's currently sat in the "Quite Soon" part of their radar, not that it really means all that much as it's very ambiguous but it is always a good bit of fun. I've said before how I hoped they would start announcing things sooner, looks like they're going to do so since they've announced multiple titles only in the last few months and now we're here again.

I honestly can't imagine what Linux gaming would be like without the titles Feral has ported, hope to see this continue for many years to come.

So grab your thinking caps, brew up something tasty and start your guessing.

Sounds like either Shadow of the Tomb Raider or Cyberpunk 2077

I took a screenshot of a zoomed in version of the picture and am now pretty certain that I have no idea what it is.
There are palm trees and there are strange ancient glyphs/art chiselled in to stone. I suppose it could somehow be Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Is Fallout too much to wish for?

That's some self-referencing joke. The radar items are always cryptic obscurities how is this one different?!

Seriously, I hope this is SotTR. A good story-drieven stealth shooter is always welcome. I admit, the story part is never the strong side of this franchise but seriously, who cares? The graphics, gameplay and Lara <3 are good and I heard in SotTR the baddies are more lifelike and properly motivated so that's already deep. Anyway, my GPU is ready for some serious Vulkan eruption. Bring it!

I guess there ary crypts in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, so, it's... cryptic?
And, hey, it's dark in the crypts, so there's some obscurity (like in darkness, not like in hard to understand).

One of the first Google hits for "cryptic obscurity" is this piece of fan fiction:

They're porting an hitherto unannounced game adaptation of a Twilight fanfic. :O

I think you meant to write Total War: WARHAMMER 2, no?
