Feral Interactive are teasing ANOTHER new Linux port

Posted by , | Views: 25,758

Feral Interactive are at it once again, go dust off those thinking caps as they're bringing another game to Linux.

From the famous Feral Radar, here's their latest Linux port teaser:

As a reminder, Feral Interactive have only recently release Life is Strange: Before the Storm and Total War: Warhammer II is confirmed to be coming this autumn. On top of that, last month they also put up another teaser that we're still guessing.

I wouldn't be surprised if they do try to get more ports out earlier now, especially with Steam Play which would eat into their Linux port sales. Anyway…looks like 2018 really will be another great year for Linux gaming!

The amount of Linux games Feral has ported now is kind of ridiculous: XCOM, XCOM 2, Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Mad Max, Shadow of Mordor, HITMAN, F1 2017, Life is Strange, Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Dawn of War II, Dawn of War III, DiRT Rally and the list goes on.

What do you think "AURORA" will be?

Whitewolfe80Potentially good news but WB did kill Batman after approving feral to port it so 50/50
Batman: Arkham Night had quite bad initial reception on Windows. It took them months to make it playable, but it already got a lot of bad press by that time. My guess is, that their decision to cancel the port was because of that, rather than some problems with Feral Interactive.

The game is quite demanding and Vulkan wasn't yet an option at that time, I guess it simply didn't performed when being translated to OpenGL. The initial bad reception certainly didn't helped either.

Shadow of War would be nice, since it's not working with Proton. Time seems to me ideal, game is finally completed with microtransactions removed and Definitive Edition available.

No i wasnt saying it was a problem with Feral i am saying they pulled the plug after Feral had fixed a bunch of game bugs and had begun to work on a stable linux port and WB just pulled the plug.

Dunc“Aurora” is Latin for “dawn” or “sunrise”. But the only thing I can think of is the Dawn of War series, and (as far as I know) they're all already out on Linux. Also, they're rather light on seagulls.
Well, with that information, my guess is Grim Dawn.
I'd forgotten about that one. But again... seagulls?

Hypothesis1: Seabirds on the picture have not to be interpreted as seagulls but albatros, the sea sheperd is one of the numerous surname of albatros. Aurora is the name of a ship used in Mass Effect.

Hypothesis2: A Flock of Seagulls Aurora Borealis is a group of space new age music. Some game in space

--> from those two hypotheses, I would bet on SUBNAUTICA ! The spaceship name is Aurora. I ENJOY is it was such a native port! Best game from the last year for sure !

Hypothesis3: the HMS Seagull is a Danish brig-sloop allied to France during Napoleonic wars that captured, among others, the HMS Aurora from the British and received money from France for that capture. So Pirates, Napoleonic wars, North seas ... ?
