Feral Interactive are teasing a brand new native Linux port

Posted by , | Views: 33,550

All aboard the hype train, as Feral Interactive are setting off with a new native Linux game that's being teased on their port radar.

For their Tweet:

5PM on a Friday, we're getting ready for the #BankHolidayWeekend to start, and the Feral Radar decides to kick into life with a new blip for macOS and Linux. Well, whatever. We'll fix that rusty old thing on Tuesday. Okay, bye!

Here it is:

"Working with fire and steel" huh—anyone got any thoughts? I have a lot that come to mind, but I don't think I've ever managed to guess a single one of them correctly, they're always a damn good surprise.

Really great to see more coming from Feral, I sure do hope they have more on the way too. They're a company that has supported Linux really well for a long time now, both in terms of games and wider community efforts.

What a week!

"Working with fire and steel" is a song from China Crisis... there is always a song in the clue!

The most obvious thing to spring to mind is Starforge (Star from the picture, Forge from the description) but considering that game is old, everyone hated it, and I think it's even free now, I doubt that's what they are teasing.

I don't even try to guess, but please let it be "Shadow of the Tomb Raider"
(although I wouldn't mind to wait for a year or two until there is a game of the year edition)

PS: Good timing from Feral!

My immediate thought was Mount & Blade: Bannerlord, since a previous release was “With Fire & Sword”, but I think that's paradoxically* both too on-the-nose and not close enough.

I suspect Expalphalog might be on to something with “forge”. But I don't really follow games that aren't already on Linux very closely, so I'm struggling to think of recent ones with “forge” in the title. I'm sure there are some.

*See what I did there? Also, it's unlikely Feral would port a Paradox title.

I gave up guessing last time when "proud seat of lucifer" teased total war: warhammer II and there were so many clues leading to Hellblade.

Fire & Steel applies to a lot of games... But I wonder when Feral will port Middle-Earth: Shadow of War.

That title did come to mind. I would love it if so.

Same here, I was dead certain it would have been Hellblade or Agony. With Microsoft now owning Team Ninja I doubt we ever see a native release of Hellblade for Linux.
