Feral Interactive are asking what you want ported to Linux again

Posted by , | Views: 33,887

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.

It's kinda funny they're asking, because we all know that most AAA publishers out there won't consider letting Feral port their stuff anyway. But ok, they asked and I shall answer:

1. The Sims 4.
2. Cyberpunk 2077
3. Fallen Jedi.

Ok, that was for giggles, because we all know that chances of any of these games making it to Linux are lower than sanity returning to world politics. But they asked!

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

If they can make it work on Stadia, they should be capable of wiring up something that handles input like SDL.

Porting the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 would be cool.
But as i recall the Witcher 2 left a very bad taste in CD Projeckt Red's mouth.

Fallout 4 or Skyrim EE would be nice, but I would be happier if OpenMW grows to encompass them.

Anti Cheat systems would be great since those seem to be causing headaches all around.

Disco Elysium might be interesting.
Children of Morta looks cool.
Also heard good things about Greedfall

Do not have high hopes for big AAA publishers allowing their games to be ported.

Actually, porting companies like Feral have an extra market opportunity now with big publishers. The publishers now run to invest into Stadia ports. That's the heavy lifting. Then a porting company can come and offer a deal: "we make desktop Linux port from your Stadia one, and then handle all support costs for it, getting Linux sales money in return".

The publisher isn't losing anything on that deal, possibly only gaining more positive attitude from users. And it's also a lot less work for the porting company, due heavy lifting already being done.
