For those interested to know, the former Linux dev lead at Feral Interactive is now working at Unity.
I noticed earlier this week, as Marc posted a hint about it on his personal Twitter (I need to get me one of those sweet Unity tops to add to my collection). Now I've had a chance to personally speak to him, it's all very much confirmed.
It's funny really, as when I spoke to him previously I asked about porting other games and he said:
I'd aim bigger and work somewhere bringing more than just one game to Linux
Well—a game engine is one way to do it!
This is good, as it means a very popular game engine used by many developers, now has even more Linux expertise in-house. Considering Unity has had a number of rather annoying Linux-specific issues lately, hopefully Unity will continue to get more spit and polish for Linux games.
All the best to Marc on his move.
