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

By - | Views: 22,836

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.

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.

Kind of obvious that this is SotTR. On the one hand I'm happy because it's a great game, on the other hand it makes me kind of sad that they weren't even able to announce it when the game launched, especially since it's playable on Proton.

Performance-wise they should have absolutely no trouble beating Proton by a mile and a half, the D3D11 renderer of this game just doesn't perform all that well, even on Windows.

Yes. I remember Feral gets their share once a game is announced. I somehow hope that all Steam purchases that count for Linux, thus including bought for Steam Play/Proton, are retrospectively* effective for their share so that porting stays lucrative for them. But dunno...

Would love to know how exactly their financial model works..

(* not sure if this is the correct English term, what I mean is "rückwirkend" in German)

I don't know German but you probably meant retroactively. :-)
