Feral Interactive are teasing yet another SteamOS & Linux game

Posted by , | Views: 28,039
Feral Interactive are pushing the boat out once more, and they have another clue ready for an unannounced port.

The clue is "THE ROYAL SCAM", and the image to go with it is this:

The Royal Scam is the fifth album by Steely Dan, originally released by ABC Records in 1976.

There is a song called "The Fez" in the album, but Fez has already been ported, so that's not it.

The lyrics of the title song are:
Spoiler, click me
And they wandered in from the city of St. John
Without a dime
Wearing coats that shined both red and green
Colors from their sunny island

From their boats of iron they looked upon the promised land
Where surely life was sweet
On the rising tide to New York City
Did they ride into the street

See the glory
Of the royal scam

They are hounded down to the bottom of a bad town
Amid the ruins
Where they learn to fear an angry race of fallen kings
Their dark companions

While the memory of their southern sky was clouded by
A savage winter
Every patron saint hung on the wall, shared the room
With twenty sinners

See the glory
Of the royal scam

By the blackened wall he does it all
He thinks he's died and gone to Heaven
Now the tale is told by the old man back home
He reads the letter

How they are paid in gold just to babble in the back room
All night and waste their time
And they wandered in from the city of St. John
Without a dime

See the glory
Of the royal scam

See the glory
Of the royal scam

See the glory
Of the royal scam

May be worth looking into?

As for the image I had to think of the sphynx's riddle in Oedipus, but the child isn't on all fours, so it may be unrelated. If it is the reverse sphynx riddle it could mean "noon". It could also just mean family.

Or should we look into games that scammed us? :-p

This one is easy: Its Dishonored

Hmmm - the first title that came to my mind is Dishonored, although that was probably wishful thinking since the story was about an empress and her daughter - they don't count as royals, do they? But there was definitely a scam at play in that game.

Dishonoured was my first reaction too (and it'd be nice) but I don't really see how the picture relates.

Dishonored!!! I agree completely. Please God make it possible

The lyrics to 'the Royal Scam' mention 'the City of St. John', which is supposed to be in Canada; and it's implied in GTA V that Trevor Phillips is from Canada -- so, there you have it, it's GTA V.

Spoiler, click me

In the last "The Big Bang Theory" episode (S09E08), Sheldon, Raj and Howard publish an announce on Craiglist filled with very difficult puzzles that if solved can bring a woman to Sheldon's house to meet him and became his girlfriend. This way he can select the most intelligent woman on Earth. They also set a deadline: 10 second after it a very beautiful and intelligent woman appears at the door. She introduces herself, and damn! she's a genius! But Sheldon slams the door in her face telling her "I'm sorry, but you missed my deadline".

That's exactly my point about following the hype train: they'll release a game that will not work on my AMD gfx card, so who cares about those puzzles!

Lol love the way you think, I'd love to have GTA V too but I highly doubt it.

Good opportunity to refresh one's memory and listen to some Steely Dan music - slightly forgotten and often overlooked band.

Maybe is because im old... but i dislike the teasing u.u

Either give it to me, or let me be happily ignorant... (Dishonored would be awesome tho)
