Feral has been really quiet lately. No radar quiz, and more than 6 months have passed since the announcement of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, I have high hopes that in the following weeks we will have at least a date confirmation.
I think that proton has hit them hard, remember last year we had tons of feral games announced almost every month. I mean they are releasing games, but not at the speed they were doing in 2018.
I wonder how many feral games were released on 2018 first half?

Not that many really. But the lack of announcements is sort of worrying. Maybe the thing that made Paradox decide to stop/pause their investments into Linux games is a symptom of a wider sentiment of publishers. After all, Feral can't do their ports with at least some support from the original devs and publishers. In any case, if there is one good thing that could come out of Stadia, it could be that Feral gets more work. I hope so. It would be a nice reward for their investment in their Vulkan tech.

I'm still on the fence about the whole Klei thing. On the one hand I think it's one of the best developers out there and they never fail to impress. But it's still creating an exclusive and it's still not good for customers. Even though the exclusive period will probably not even cover the entire EA period. In any case it won't matter for Linux users. Oxygen Not Included only got a build later during EA (exactly as they promised) and there is no reason to think this game would be any different.

Yeah, Proton is a double-edged sword
