Feral Interactive are teasing ANOTHER new Linux port

By - | Views: 31,514

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?

“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.

Comandante ÑoñardoWith Proton doing a good job for the gaming on Linux, Feral really should STOP with these silly things and just announce the games.

As far as I know they announce as soon as they are allowed to. You know what an NDA is?

On-topic: F1 2018, Life is Strange2, Hitman 2 or Shadow of the Tomb Raider would fit with Feral's history, though no clue from the hints.

I'm guessing Hitman 2. The first level is set in miami. It being near the beach means seagulls are a thing.

Nah, this is first The Wi†cher. It use old Aurora engine made by BioWare. Trust me. Or maybe better dont trust

Well, this one was obvious. The seagulls, first, and then the name, Aurora.

You know how the Aperture Science boat is called the Borealis in Half-life 2 and Portal 2, right? Half-Life 3 Confiiiiiiiiiirmed!

Otherwise, I don't know. Maybe The witness? I haven't played it, but it's on an island. Would it fit with seagulls and Aurorae?

riusmaSeagulls are maybe for the band A Flock of Seagulls (always a song in the clues)?

In their song "I Ran" there is a mention of Aurora (Aurora borealis). There could be a connection.
My thoughts as well.

QuoteThe cloud is moving nearer still
Aurora Borealis comes in view
Aurora comes in view
I Ran (So Far Away) - A Flock Of Seagulls
If this lead is correct, then I can see two possible prominent themes in the song that wouldn't be too insanely cryptic to reference: a red-haired woman and disappearance. Which could either refer to a red-haired female protagonist or something disappearing. Or both. Well, there is also running of course but that is a bit too broad, it can't be the only meaningful element, right? (Unless we're getting Mirror's Edge or something)

I will tell you what it is not: it is no excuse from criticisms.
