Life is Strange: Before the Storm [Steam], the standalone story adventure set three years before the original is officially heading to Linux! Feral Interactive have today announced that it will arrive sometime this Spring.

Feral Interactive ported the original Life is Strange episodes to Linux, so I’m not surprised they’re teaming up again to bring Before the Storm to Linux. I think they did a very good job of the port before and I certainly enjoyed it a lot. Life is Strange: Before the Storm - Deluxe Edition for Linux will include all three episodes along with the bonus episode, "Farewell".

This standalone prequel isn’t actually made by the originally developer Dontnod, instead the the publisher picked Deck Nine.

“With its tough yet vulnerable protagonist, Life is Strange: Before the Storm is a poignant evocation of teenage life,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “The atmospheric soundtrack, sharp writing and captivating story combine to create an engrossing and moving game, and we very are excited for macOS and Linux players to experience it.” 

Feral said that pricing and system requirements will be confirmed closer to release. You can see the official news post over on the Feral Interactive site. They also now have a mini-site set up for it with a few more details.

This is the third confirmed port from Feral Interactive for Linux this year, so we will have: Total War: THRONES OF BRITANNIARise of the Tomb Raider and now this as well!

Will you be grabbing a copy when it releases for Linux? Exciting times!

Will update the article later with any more information once the official press stuff has been sent out to us.

BeamboomSteam could just as well implement a system where one can simply subscribe to a developer. Auto-purchase anything put out by them.

I'd just throw Feral in there and be done with it.
Dear Lord Gaben, I have a single wish, can you grant it? It's right there, in the quote! I know, it's not Christmas yet but PLEASE!

Will buy! I hope it arrives a little bit in April. Then I can switch back and forth between this game and "NWN:EE", depending on the mood.

FlabbAFAIK, Before the Storm was built on Unity. Is this a fully native version built with Unity, or does it use Feral's wrapper?

I hope it's native, but at the end of the day, it's important that the game gets ported, not how.

Great news indeed! Feral has some really good games in the list, I just wish were faster on porting new games to Linux so we didn't have to wait as long!
Cestus 14 March 2018 at 1:12 pm UTC
cool! i can't wait!

Is this game just about a teenage girl going through her period? I could never quite figure out what its all about...

I think the first game was the most emotional game I've ever played.
Especially the "save the town" ending. ** wipes tears **

The first episode works well with Wine since several releases.
I will buy this one too, instantbuy for me.

Really? Last time I tried the characters were invisible which makes it completely unplayable. Glancing at winehq-appdb it seems this issue is still present.

So, this is the "Just a shot away" teaser from the Feral Radar.

Looking back at the previous thread, qptain Nemo successfully guessed this game based on Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter Lyrics.

I'm interested in purchase too, but will hold off until it is counted as a Linux sale. (Also noting that I wouldn't be purchasing it if it wasn't coming to Linux.)
