Feral Interactive are asking you to send the game port suggestions again

Posted by , | Views: 21,683

Feral Interactive, one of the only companies to be porting AAA games to Linux have put out a request for more port suggestions. 

THE REQUESTINATOR is whirring noisily into action! Feed your game requests for macOS, Linux or mobile into this marvellous machine and they will be processed with unnecessarily complex computational algorithms.

You can see the posts on Twitter and Facebook.

While it's a bit of fun, it will be interesting to see how many of the requests Feral actually end up porting. They're already working on Life is Strange 2, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS and Total War: WARHAMMER II is due out this month. So they're still bringing us some good games, but I do hope they seriously have more coming up.

If they really want a list, being realistic here my top three right now to keep me happy would be:

  1. HITMAN 2
  2. Just Cause 4
  3. Shadow of the Tomb Raider

I think those would be possible, since they already have some sort of contacts with each studio and publisher and have done previous titles. In the case of Just Cause 4, it's the same developer that did Mad Max which Feral Ported to Linux. Those are my realistic titles, however, if they want to push they boat out a little how about:

  1. Dying Light 2
  2. Dead by Daylight
  3. Divinity: Original Sin 2

What would be your top 5, that you would want Feral to port to Linux?

Well they have a point...

If the Phoenix Point devs are not capable of porting themselves give it to the experts...

Tbh I think Feral should focus hard on trying to port multiplayer games. Thats the biggest area that Proton is lacking and one of the biggest dealbreakers with people trying to switch from windows. If you cant play with your friends then they are way less likely to stay on the Linux side of the fence.

So Feral, look at the top games played on steam and port the ones that dont work with proton. Often times its very hard to be proactive with multiplayer games because its almost impossible to tell which ones are going to be a hit or not until they are, but regardless we appreciate your work guys!

My top 5:
1. Kingdom Come: Deliverance
2. Kingdom Come: Deliverance
3. Kingdom Come: Deliverance
4. Kingdom Come: Deliverance
5. Kingdom Come: Deliverance

ageresHave they already ported all previous suggested games? If so, I'd like something that don't work with Wine and DXVK, like Resident Evil 7 or upcoming RE2 remake.

CAPCOM games are highly unlikely to come to Linux. Up to now, there is still no official word from CAPCOM regarding the status of the announced Linux version of Street Fighter V.

CAPCOM is also a lazy game developer. Resident Evil 7 doesn't support 21:9 aspect ratio.

I believe Feral Interactive is aware of the Top 10 or Top 100 Most Played games on Steam. But a game coming to Linux or not really depends on the original publisher. Even if Feral Interactive is very capable to do the Linux version, it will not materialize if the original publisher doesn't want to bring their game to Linux.

Real world proof? Look at the games developed and published by Square Enix.

The latest Tomb Raider with support for VR. Any VR game will be interesting. Hope for my Samsung Odyssey with OpenXR soon also on Linux.

Why not just take our suggestions from last time, given they didn't do any of them without TOTAL WAR in the title?

Now there's a thought. Maybe if we renamed it to TOTAL WAR: Skyrim....
