Feral Interactive are asking what you want ported to Linux again

Posted by , | Views: 33,923

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.

all Blizzard games
Halo: The Master Chief Collection

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.

hitman 2 and plague work very good with proton, so i think it is senseless

Feral Interactive needs to partner with other publishers such as BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and CAPCOM.

Resident Evil 3 Remake and Dragon Ball FighterZ on Linux would be awesome.

How do you persuade these companies to even consider Linux? Square Enix shocked me when they teamed up with Feral Interactive in the first place giving us Life Is Strange and the Tomb Raider serials. No doubt it takes months of meetings, possibly begging in there somewhere too??

The only one running with the financial risk of the Linux porting is Feral; they buy the publishing rights for Linux and Mac and pay for the porting work.
The original publishers don't have to pay anything..
