This looks very cool. Still deciding on how to get into the whole 40K universe. (Never played the table top games)

If you have the time to read a novel, try Dan Abnett's Xenos from 2001. If you don't, here's the very basic gist of it in a minute.

Fair enough, we do love our strategy games. DiRT Rally has an awesome Campaign Map, and the thousands of units in Life Is Strange were epic. You'd have thought the turn-based manoeuvring of massive armies in games like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Shadow of Mordor, Mad Max, GRID Autosport and HITMAN would be bizarre, but it worked out really well -- though the fleet of tanks in Alien: Isolation was a bit weird. What faction did you pick in Tomb Raider? I went with the Dwarves.

Thanks for porting all these epic games :)

Fair enough too, I have all of them (you forgot F1 2105) and thank you, awesome games that we wouldn't have without you.
But you know what I mean, all these titles/genres combined are about 10 titles while the rest of your titles (about 21) are strategy.
So what is it with you and strategy games? Are they offered to you more often for porting, or maybe they are easier to port, more profitable...what is it?
To be clear, I'm glad every time I see you port something regardless of the genre. if Feral does OK and gets contracts, then Linux gaming does OK and gets games, everybody wins. But I'd also like to see other genres hang more in you releases balance.

RTS is super fine for me, more of that! We have a lack of those on Linux! If only we could play with our non-Linux-friends.... :(

Probably because a lot of linux gamers love strategy games and Total War franchise(myself included).

I do not mean that linux gamers don't like other games that are strategy or anything like that. I do love a lot of other game especially the ones that have linux versions =D.

I doubt that is that simple. Granted, it does matter what we like and they listen (see the Requestinator) but I think they have a lot of other factors to consider when choosing a game for porting. Likely a combination of contract offers + time needed + efforts needed + familiarity with the engine used + projected profitability.
My question is though, after the line is drawn, how come strategy games seem to be the dominant genre ? Maybe they have good relation with some strategy oriented developers/publishers (so more offers), are they easier to port, what ?
I mean really, half joke/half serious, but Feral Strategy Games Interactive ™ describes pretty much what they do currently for Linux. Have no idea about Mac though.
