It's time to bug Feral Interactive about future port requests once again

Posted by , | Views: 33,544

Feral Interactive, the absolute monster when it comes to big Linux game ports is asking what you want to see again.

You all know Feral by now, they've ported HITMAN, F1 2017, Mad Max, Dawn of War III, Life is Strange, XCOM, XCOM 2, DiRT Rally and many more seriously good games to Linux. On top of that, they still have an existing teaser up that they haven't yet announced, all we know is that it's coming to Linux.

On Twitter, they asked this recently:

It’s a New Year full of new possibilities! If you could only have one new game for macOS, Linux or mobile in 2018, which one would it be? And why? We can’t promise that your dreams will come true, but the best answers will star in our email newsletter.

Naturally, Feral lurk in our comments, so feel free to post here as well as I'm sure they will be taking note. 

For me personally, I would like a new open-world game that I can travel around and sink plenty of hours into. Something to allow time to fade away and forget about all lifes problems.

So—what do you want Feral to bring to Linux next?

ScooptaI'm not sure that's in their hands. If they did DRM free the publishers they work with would probably throw a fit. After all it's not their IP. They're just licensing it for porting purposes.

They choose whom they work with. So to rephrase it, they didn't choose to port any DRM-free game so far.
Ok so let's rephrase this. How many Windows exclusive games that we want on Linux are DRM free. I personally don't know of any but maybe I'm in the minority.

mirvJust don't expect any company to listen if you say that a game can't run under wine and they should fix it.

In my experience, Wine developers can pick up such bug and fix it eventually, and anyone can contribute to the project with patches as well. So on one hand you have commercial wrapper with official support for a given time period, and you have a FOSS translation framework that isn't specifically focused on one title, but can as well support it eventually too. Personally, I simply like FOSS idea more, but I surely appreciate focused support.

I suppose a lot? I only play DRM-free games, and there are quite a few I'd like to see ported to Linux. It's not like it isn't already happening, quite a number of good games come out for Linux DRM-free, but I'm talking about Feral in particular. They didn't participate in any of them unlike other porters. Which is unlikely a coincidence, and more likely reflects Feral's attitude towards this topic.

NieR:Automata because it is a high quality game with some original ideas unlike most run-of-the-mill AAA games these days.

Endless Space 2 because I like good 4x games and this one is actually pretty (same is true for Endless Legend by the way)

Elex We are sadly missing a Gothic 1/Risen 1 style game on Linux so far

Pro Evolution Soccer (any edition), because there is no such game on Linux right now.

Well, the wishlist is of course always long, but there is of course a limit to games I would actually end up buying. Right now my short list is:

Rise of the Tomb Raider - The first game is fantastic and the sequel is supposedly fantastic as well
Life is Strange: Before the Storm - I was really pleased with this game and want more!!!
Middle Earth: Shadow of War - While I am upset about the microtransactions there is apparently a way around them in single player and the underlying game is still good (although compromised). Also there is some questionable story choices, but as a ridiculous fan fic with fun orc slaying I'm down for it.

Also other things like Hitman Season 2 if that happens, and I'd love to see an update for Hitman and Mankind Divided with Vulkan.

I'd definitely love to see Fallout 4 or Skyrim special edition come to Linux, so hopefully, Bethesda is open to it. Though it seems like with some workarounds FO4 seems to work good and Skyrim Special Edition seems to be making great progress with WINE (other than texture issues and slow performance it seems to work fine). We really need a TES game on Linux.

I'd really love it if Batman: Arkham Knight were to be ported. (I'd only buy it if it were to get a Linux release.)
