Windows only according to the store page. Too bad. I enjoyed Feral's Linux port, but I don't think any of their stuff has ever been available on GOG.

I don’t think Feral has ever allowed the distribution of DRM-free versions of anything they have worked on. They’ve been kind of stuck for years on « DRM is good, and you’re all pirates! ».

I doubt that's true. I've never heard them voice a pro-DRM stance. It's more likely that in order to secure porting rights, they had to restrict themselves in how they presented the games. Great that they always managed to remove Denuvo from the ports they did, but sad they couldn't offer their ports on anything other than Steam.

Honestly, it's weird that you painted in them in that light? Do you have history against them, some minor grudge?

Yeah, I would have been tempted to purchase DRM-free Mad Max *again*, but seeing as this isn't the Linux version and I already own the Linux version on Steam, I guess I'll save my money this time.

GOG Connect - would be good for this title (if they ever permit it).

But it’s strange that you never read about Feral love for DRM, it seems to be common knowledge in most Linux-centric gaming communities.
It might just be conjecture based on the fact that they never sold their games outside of Steam. DRM might be a reason, but other plausible ones are publishing agreements with the IP owners, Steam being able to account for different publishers for different target platforms, and Steam reaching the largest audience by far.

Unless they tell us, we can only guess. But it does suck for those Linux gamers who avoid Steam. You might not be interested in the games, but I bought and enjoyed several of them.

Quoting: tuubi... Steam being able to account for different publishers for different target platforms

Yeah, that rings a bell - did Liam do an interview with one of the Feral devs who talked about this? Or did one of the devs leave Feral and was chatting on the GOL discord? I can't remember, but definitely sounds familiar.

And yeah, I bought nearly every Feral game. In fact, basically all of them, except the Total War series. I even bought the racing games although I'm not a huge fan of racing games. But Total War left me cold and they really pushed a lot of that IP.

I recommend Pathfinder: Kingmaker. It is 35% off now (I checked the Royal edition), which is the highest it's been according to isthereanydeal. It's an excellent RPG, what I would call the most genuine spiritual sequel to Baldur's Gate that has ever been made. They're making the sequel to that game now, but not sure when it will be out. Pathfinder has a native Linux release, and it works really well. Apparently the original release was messy and buggy, but that isn't the case any more, it worked great when I played it a year ago or so.

Being on Steam does not require them to use Steam's DRM. Actually planty of games do not use Steam's DRM. They can be started fine with no steam client running.

True, but Feral are only the developer here. The publishers of the games they port will be the ones to decide what kind of DRM is in place. I'm honestly surprised that Feral managed to get Denuvo removed on the titles they ported. That was great to see.

Feral acts as both the developer and the publisher for their ports. Check the Steam store page for any of their games and you'll see them listed alongside the original publisher. That's why I mentioned Steam's ability to have different publishers for different target platforms as a possible reason they stick to Steam.
