Update: It was on purpose, it's the real deal. See this comment. Article updated to reflect this new info.

Feral Interactive have updated their teaser radar to show that Life Is Strange is coming to Linux/SteamOS and Mac. The only official announcement for now is Mac App Store, but it is now confirmed to be coming to Linux. We already sort of knew this thanks to SteamDB info


Looks like it was the "Drifting Snows" teaser they sent out in April.

Oh Feral, how we love you.

About the game (Official)
Life Is Strange is a five part episodic game that sets out to revolutionise story based choice and consequence games by allowing the player to rewind time and affect the past, present and future.

You are Max, a photography senior who saves her old friend Chloe by discovering she can rewind time. The pair soon find themselves exposed to the darker side of Arcadia Bay as they uncover the disturbing truth behind the sudden disappearance of a fellow student.

Meanwhile, Max begins to have premonitions as she struggles to understand the implications of her power. She must quickly learn that changing the past can sometimes lead to a devastating future. Article taken from

When will it be released on Mac? -> Just to get a sense of when will we get it on Linux the earliest?

They need to tighten up their social media/website stuff, don't they... unless, of course, this oops isn't entirely an accident...

That's a bit strange as both versions seem to be developed in parallel but I'm absolutely fine with this strategy. Probably the Mac app store doesn't have regional prices (and since it's Mac, the game should cost more there or what's the point then) and would let Feral earn a bit more, good for them. I haven't yet completed Tomb Raider anyway.

in my opinion this is a superb AAA title. played it on 360. liked it a lot. i believe there was tearing on xbox in this title, not sure though; but im sure thats no issue when its released for penguins.

This one was on purpose, would ya believe it!

We're bringing it to the Mac App Store first, which is why we've focussed the spotlight on them for now, but we will bring it to Linux too. It's awesome, we want you to have it.

This game is absolutely brilliant. I'm really looking forward to playing it again on Linux.

The Mac version isn't coming to steam until a little bit after so I think Feral might have some agreement with Apple, or see it as a better strategy for them, bit unfortunate that if they're doing it that way, that they aren't putting LIS on the Gnome software store at the same time, but what you gonna do?

It means teaser "Drifting Snows" was about Life is Strange. For me it's weird and it is super disappointing. I was expecting DIRT: Rally and it looks it is not ported by Feral (maybe it is not ported at all).
If this teaser was not about DIRT: Rally I assume DOOM is also not the one that was announced with "808 SB12S" clue. Disappointing.

Sure you do, but I want me to have it, too.

Yup, definitely pining for more of this sort of thing on Linux.
