Feral Interactive are asking what you want ported to Linux again

By - | Views: 54,271

Feral Interactive, the porting studio behind a lot of great games available on Linux are asking for some feedback again on where they should go next.

In the past, they've teased how they feed port requests into "THE REQUESTINATOR". Looks like my number three from when they asked in November 2018 turned out okay with Shadow of the Tomb Raider. As always though, we want additional ports to buy and more varied titles to play through.

On Twitter today they posted this:

What game would you like to be ported to macOS, Linux or mobile platforms in 2020, and why?

Is there a game in dire need of porting? Let us know why it’d be perfect on your favourite platform and your answer could feature in our next newsletter: https://feralinteractive.com/xx/register/

Feral have already ported a ton of games to Linux including Alien Isolation, Life Is Strange, Before the Storm, Life is Strange 2, Mad Max, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS (and many other Total War titles), XCOM and XCOM 2 plus more. Their work is great, especially now they're all-in with Vulkan the performance is great too so more would be thoroughly welcome.

How about you mention your top three most wanted Linux ports in the comments? I'll start:

  1. MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD
  2. DRAGON BALL Z: KAKAROT
  3. Borderlands 3

Right now, those three would be seriously good to have properly supported on Linux. As for the why? Well, 1+3 are already massively popular games and with Borderlands 3 coming to Steam this year, it would be a nice surprise. As for Dragon Ball, I'm a huge fan of it and having such a game ported and supported on Linux would be a huge boon.

Quoting: AciD1-Noita

Noita works fine through Steam Proton.

Indeed it does, but still, as stated many, many times on those forums, a native port is far better to ensure future stability.

Im surprised no one else mentioned space engineers. its basicly the only one that survived empherion can be argued as working if you can figure a way to kill eac but still has a bit to go to match SE. Its also one of the areas that is rather lacking in linux capible games.

FCE mine craft and afew others are also builders but in a different direction.


iron harvest may be worth looking in to eventually but that's a rts and as some have said there's plenty of those. I havent seen many new ideas and looking through the top 500 steam games not alot jumps out that isnt already atleast proton capable.

You can already play Age of Empires series and all Blizzard games on Linux with recent Wine version.
This needs some tweaks but I advice you to use Lutris scripts installer for easier and automatic install.

Yes we can, but the less work needed the better.

Well... Skyrim of course :)

More realistically, perhaps

* Shadow of War
* Hitman 2
* Grid 2019
* Dirt Rally 2
* Dying Light 2
* Metro Exodus
* A Plague Tale: Innocence

Is it my impression or we're lacking good modern FPS on Linux?
Dying Light is fantastic (may Techland be blessed with a thousand years of prosperity and good fortune). Hopefully we'll have Dying Light 2 on Linux, fingers crossed.
Anything non-RTS. After hell at work, only the prospect of descombobulating vast hordes of zombies with a spoon keeps one mentally sane. Lacking this, any fast wild FPS will do.
Just anything that doesn't require a lot of cognitive effort.
Not RTS.
Definitively not RTS.
