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

Posted by , | Views: 33,487

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?

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
Vampyr
Metro Exodus
Skull and Bones
Call of Cthulhu
Anthem
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.

I've just responded to their twitter request, with a single game title and the reasons I think it is a good choice. But, I'd also venture - the list of games I mentioned on GOL earlier - I'd buy all the very high preference and most of the high preference titles, if they came to Linux. There's too little chance that a single title would get past the first step (i.e. the publishers will or won't let Feral port it) so that's why I'm mentioning a few more (on GOL).

Oh please lord almighty!
If upcoming borderlands 3 could have a cross-platform multiplayer

As Linux gamers we don't have a lot of games we can play with our "normal" (read: Wintendo)
friends, but borderlands (2 + pre-sequal) is luckily one of them

What I'm missing most of my Windows days is the Battlefield franchise, although I guess EA would not let a 3rd party port it.

Otherwise any recent street racing game, either arcarde (like Need for Speed) or simulation (like Asseto Corsa).
