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

Posted by , | Views: 30,951

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?

PUBG then Witcher 3 then Dark Souls 3 then Skyrim. this would net Linux a lot of traction.

Yay for Mount and Blade II also I loved Mount and Blade Warband, but the Linux version is buggy. I haven't managed to find an answer to my unexpected and continuous crashes on any forum

I don't really do big ticket social media at all, so I'll just leave this here on that off chance Feral do actually read all these.

1a} Pie in the Sky Optimism: Either Fallout 4 or Skyrim SE, if Zenimax/Bethesda could be convinced to get on board. Much as I want these for me (I need to install Wine 3 and see how well my massive mod list can be made to work for Skyrim now), I really just want them to exist on Linux natively more because the underlying engine is likely going to remain the core of both franchises, with some updating, for a long time to come as it has now for near two decades and having a known working codebase to work from is going to make releasing future installments to our platform all that much more likely.

1b} Cynical Realism: Any halfway comparable yet under performing open world RPG on which the Linux community could dog pile and visibly push to more significant numbers just from our interest in having more such titles.

2a} Pie in the Sky Optimism: Any significant and relatively recent Blizzard game. Last I browsed their forums (a few years back) they persisted to insist that there wasn't enough market share for Linux nor enough interest from the Linux gaming community to make porting any of their games worth the costs, including in response to people asking for Hearthstone which is, to my understanding, built on bloody Unity.

2b} Moderately Realistic by Comparison: Magic: The Gathering Arena which is in closed beta now. I've been unable to find out whether they intend to push a Linux native version, but historically Magic Digital Studio has been at least as dismissive as Activision/Blizzard when it comes to Linux releases. I don't really care about Hearthstone and would still like Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, et al or a really suitable replacement but MTG Arena has me drooling as something that seems to be a merger between the Duels of the Planeswalkers games and MTGO and likely to be their future online format going forward.

3} Pie in the Sky Optimism: Any of the Final Fantasy games that have been ported to Windows. Personally I want the chance to repurchase and natively play any of FF1 through FF6 again and relive some of my childhood/teen years putting dozens to hundreds of hours into each of these. Realistically, much as I dislike the game myself, I know that FF7 is the one that has the best chance to draw enough interest to push more installments of the franchise onto Linux with all the updates. There is no realistic alternative here unfortunately.

Horizon Zero Dawn.

It's gotten great reviews and the game looks awesome, looks fun and I really want to play it. It's said to have an engaging story and have side quests that feel a lot more interesting and meaningful than those is usual in open world games.

Also, awesome robot animals!

Sorry, I know we were supposed to choose one, but I need to bring up the triple A indie title that I think everyone’s missed.

Hellblade: Sinua's sacrifice

A single player game that if you are to believe Jim Sterling truly elevates "triple A" game making to art.
This game needs to come to Linux. Extremely beautiful and an experience I really want to try.

Not an entirely sensible suggestion. It is Sony's game on Sony's hardware. Maybe if one day it gets released on XBOX, Windows, then it becomes something that could be considered.

Meanwhile, I notice a lot of these suggestions to Feral are for existing games. There are a lot of upcoming games, which people will be wanting on Linux as soon as they're released.

Games such as these:

Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Monster Hunter: World
Sea of Thieves
A Way Out
Far Cry 5
Metal Gear: Survive
Metro Exodus
Skull and Bones
Call of Cthulhu
Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord

nijiwarWhat hapening with #THEREQUESTINATOR?All spoken games there discussed again here.

The Requestinator is still happening, but it's just a popularity contest - a big wishlist of things people would like to see.

Feral are being more nuanced here:
  • Pick ONE game

  • WHY would you pick that game

Sadly, that's been lost in the enthusiasm and once again, we have most folk shouting big lists of games they'd like to see without any context beyond "I want".

It's just Feral engaging with their fanbase. I wouldn't read too much into this format vs the requestinator, but sometimes the story behind why you want a given game is more interesting than the request itself.
