Feral Interactive are teasing a new Linux port, time to start guessing

Posted by , | Views: 20,873

If it wasn't enough that Feral Interactive are porting Life is Strange 2, Total War: WARHAMMER II and Total War: THREE KINGDOMS to Linux they're also teasing another new Linux port. They also only asked a few days ago to send port requests to them so they're really quite busy for us lately.

Popping up on their port teaser radar today was this "CRYPTIC OBSCURITY":

It's currently sat in the "Quite Soon" part of their radar, not that it really means all that much as it's very ambiguous but it is always a good bit of fun. I've said before how I hoped they would start announcing things sooner, looks like they're going to do so since they've announced multiple titles only in the last few months and now we're here again.

I honestly can't imagine what Linux gaming would be like without the titles Feral has ported, hope to see this continue for many years to come.

So grab your thinking caps, brew up something tasty and start your guessing.

I already know that will be a Shadow of the Tomb Raider,
but i want to be SkyrimSE, or Elder Scrolls 6.
But also i know, they will never port SkyrimSE, because it will get fixed XAudio with FAudio(https://github.com/FNA-XNA/FAudio ) and SteamPlay.

Woot - no "stop wasting time and release the games faster" type posts? That's real progress, folks! :-D

And yeah this smells like Tomb Raider. Personally I'm hoping for a new AAA franchise but Lara is an obvious purchase.

sa666666watching OS/2 disappear when it basically became redundant

FWIW, OS/2 hasn't completely disappeared:

I LOVE Feral, but the thing is i don't really like Total War series, and Tomb Raider 2013 was great but Rise was much worse imho.
I mean, they are doing God's work, but not with my favorite games sadly. I know that Bethesda wouldn't let Feral making a Fallot4 port, but SEGA has a lot of good games if you ask me, what about Sonic Racing games? Transformed is AWESOME, and the next one will be great too.

Y'all need to be better sleuths...

Reverse tineye search: https://tineye.com/search/453e5f9b31f3631fc5c6dc77b6bac629035a3dd7/
Gives this 404 flickr page: "photos/20823146@N04/"
Googling that string however gives us "Lemurian Grove"'s since deleted flickr account.
A google image search for that "grove", however, gives us multiple matching images: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Lemurian+Grove&client=ubuntu&hs=Kqe&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiey7y44djeAhWmJMAKHRk_AAwQ_AUIDigB&biw=1280&bih=1300#imgrc=_. I suspect this user took photos at the place in question.

Not much info is available about this "grove", but based on this soundcloud account we can make a guess they're in San Jose.

Finding anything related to Lemurian in San Jose points to This "herbals" shop.

Lemuria is also a lost land in the Indian or Pacific ocean, like Atlantis.

Based on all of this, I reckon the game in question is none other than the most cryptically obscure Weed Shop 2. With the Atlantis DLC.

I hope this helps.

For reals though that sleuthing (based on which articles the image search popped up) pointed to it being a photo of the Pusharo Petroglyphs in the Manu National Park, Peru.

robvvNo more Warhammer please!
Let's agree to disagree.
And in my case, my disagreement comes in the form of using my wallet to reward Feral. ;)
It's super effective!

Feral is 22 years old...
It is time to stop porting games developed by others and start developing their own games, maybe with the financial help of Valve.

The eventual success of Proton will change the rules for game porters: Develop or die.
Ethan Lee understood this and now He is working on Proton.

That's a totally different business needing a different kind of employees.
They still can port to Mac if Linux doesn't work out, as they did the last 22 years.
And extend their business on mobile.

I too want more Warhammer titles. I want all of them really, even if I don't personally buy them all, because it shows a franchise being on GNU/Linux, not just individual games.

Same for Tomb Raider. More of that franchise would be good.

And yes, other IP would be nice too, but as additions, not instead of. More of the core games, and branching out as it becomes viable. That'd be ideal, in my opinion.

Shadow of Lady Croft is groovy enough for me. Just Cause 3 would set me to weeping uncontrollably with thoroughgoing Joy, so probably good it isn't that.
