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

Posted by , | Views: 23,529

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?

I just vote for the next Sonic Racing game and anything from Bandai Namco.

Hitman 2 would be really cool. That's my top priority for Feral right now.
Just Cause 4 also sounds sweet!

Future titles:

Metro: Exodus
Cyberpunk 2077
Doom Eternal
Wasteland 3
Phoenix Point
Witchfire
Dying Light 2

Current titles:

Shadow of the Tomb Raider
The Elder Scrolls Online
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
Divinity: Original Sin 2
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Hitman 2
Wolfenstein 2
(Into The Breach)

Older titles:

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
Fallout 4
The Witcher 3
GTA V

I can fairly safely say, I'd purchase any of these titles as soon as a Linux version was available. I put brackets around "Into The Breach" because I'm expecting the original studio, Subset Games, will build for Linux, and I'm certainly hoping that Techland builds Dying Light 2 for Linux too.

aejsmith[Going by your PC info, you have a AMD GCN 1.0 GPU, in which case this should have been fixed by the game update last week. Do you still see it on the latest version?
Not yet. Maybe I'm trying it on weekend. Too busy with work as end of 2018 is getting nearer.

Every time this gets asked, I always want Space Marine. But only if I can purchase it again; not expecting a freebie piece of work, I'll pay for a GNU/Linux port of a Windows-only game that I've bought long ago. Although I also suspect that if this was something Feral could port, they would have done so by now.

tonRHitman 1 is great game even do in my computer, the graphics looks like this.....

Going by your PC info, you have a AMD GCN 1.0 GPU, in which case this should have been fixed by the game update last week. Do you still see it on the latest version?

A quick question: Did you shelved Vulkan renderer in Hitman forever or it is an ongoing thing but not high on priority list?

jardonWhy do so many people want ports of games that already work in proton? I mean I understand you all want native ports, but why not target games that dont already work in proton as to expand the Linux game catalog? I mean is it really worth getting hairworks to work in the Witcher 3 to request it?

I'm just interested in your perspective. This isnt meant to be hostile, but meant as an open, friendly discussion.

Hairworks in Witcher 3 is working.

You need a Transform Feedback extension compatible driver , that's all.

On Nvidia : 396.54.09 ( Still not on in 4xx series ).
For AMD: Mesa git

It's about the value you put on a game. This varies greatly from person to person and game to game. Take the much requested Skyrim for instance. Skyrim is from Bethesda, who is also responsible for blocking the Linux build of the lastest Doom. This makes me put a value of $0 on all Bethesda titles. That effectively means I refuse to spend money on it at all. If however, the would change their mind and have Feral port Skyrim, the value would increase by a lot because it's greatly beneficial to Linux gaming.

Most stuff is somewhere in between. However, I still value things that require Proton to run much lower than native games. Which means they might be at the back of queue forever.

This is how I see things. But others may do it differently.

Also, hairworks in The Witcher 3 works fine with DXVK.
