Time To Guess What Feral Interactive Are Working On, New Teaser

By - | Views: 37,719
Feral Interactive are being sneaky, as they have given a little hint towards their next game, and it's quite obvious it's for Linux.

It's time to get excited folks. Feral Interactive ported XCOM: Enemy Unknown to Linux not too long ago, so we are all eager to see what they have up next. Luckily, we may not have to wait for long at all.

Considering the excellent job they did with XCOM they have already proven themselves to me.

The clue is this picture:

Along with "(Clue: genus and species)".

Anyone want to try figuring out what game they are talking about? Looks like a pretty big nod to us for the fact of it being a penguin.

Source: tumblr article and their twitter.

For those that somehow missed it, we interviewed Feral Interactive back in June, so be sure to give that a read. In that interview Edwin did say this about future Linux ports:

QuoteThat's the plan! Although I can't give you any clues about what's next in line, I can say that the coming year should be a good one for Linux gamers!

That looks like an emperor penguin. Soo... Empire: Total War? That's a 2008 game though, but apparently with a 2012 port for OS X (by Feral).

The classification of the Emperor penguin is:

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Sphenisciformes
Family: Spheniscidae
Genus: Aptenodytes
Species: Aptenodytes forsteri

It better be all of these:

Batman: Arkham Asylum
Batman: Arkham City
Bioshock
Bioshock 2
Borderlands

Thanks, Feral, my money is yours.

If you Google "Aptenodytes forsteri Steam", the second hit is this Steam profile. That player only has one game in their account, 7 Days to Die. Feral is porting 7 Days to Die to Linux, confirmed. ;)

Interesting theory, but we should consider more seriously the clue : on the picture I don't think it's an emperor penguin but a king penguin or Aptenodytes patagonicus.

Its Emperor penguin so i guess next game is Empire: Total War - Feral working on this game from few last months.
