Feral Interactive are asking what you want ported to Linux again

Posted by , | Views: 29,899

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.

I would really like to see Ori series, or something similar in style!

LibertyPaulMI'd like to see them focus on games that don't run via Steam Play. Porting a game that can be played already through Steam seems wasted effort in my opinion
Don't agree, especially when it's popular games. Steam Play can break with any game update, as is now the case with Monster Hunter going from seemingly great to unplayable in a single update ;)

Support is what we need. Proton is great for older titles not being updated constantly.

Support can mean many things. From a native version (never gonna happen for a lot of the games people are listing here) to working with Valve to fix issues in proton. I want more of the latter, it would be more realistic than having a long wishlist of ports.

I've been hearing of a lot of Windows users having frame rate issues with Monsterr Hunter World so I'd be shocked if these didn't make it into proton as well.

If CDPR is still intent on releasing Cyberpunk for Stadia, Feral doesn't have to do anything as the game will already be running on Linux. All the devs would have to do is make the game available off Stadia.


As for what I'd like to see ported - Divinity: Original Sin II

Stadia doesn't use SDL, so it would need some moddleware to take inputs and display on Linux. Someone would have to wire SDL up.

The game I would like most on Linux is Divinity Original Sin 2, as its probably the best RPG ever made and still feels fresh and current and still sells 2 years after release.

I would also say Cyberpunk 2077 but it's clear as day that CDPR have no interest in Linux.

Never say never when it comes to games. We already have plenty of games people never thought would come to Linux. Support can mean many things, yes, but I wouldn't expect an update to be pushed out in a supported game from Feral that made it unplayable, since you know, Feral handle it themselves, it's their business to make it work.

This isn't about being realistic though, this is a wishlist, let people have their wishes ;)
