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

Posted by , | Views: 15,072

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?

Why 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.

I would also like to see the Japanese side of their current publisher partners on Linux. E.g just from Sega:

1. Yakuza games
2. Valkyria Chronicles 1 & 4
3. Bayonetta

I actually wonder why we haven't seen this Japanese stuff from Feral. Is it because the Japanese side of these companies don't want to play ball, or is it because all the documentation and possibly the code itself for these games is in Japanese? Japanese developers also tend to use their own engines which would make it even harder for Feral to port them.

If they want to make more money on these ports, they need to be working with studios before launch, and get the game out on release day alongside Windows. Maybe studios don't let them, maybe they try to do this and something holds them up, I don't know. Generally, the majority of a game's sales happen in the first couple weeks of release while news/hype is still fresh. Linux games have an additional roadblock though, in that some people dual boot and will buy the windows version before the port comes out.. which gives money only to the windows publisher.

Cyberpunk 2077 is a title that would probably earn Feral a ton of money if they launched on release day.

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.
