What games do you want ported to Linux? Feral Interactive want to know again

Posted by , | Views: 39,108

Feral Interactive are wanting to know what games you want ported to Linux, hopefully taking your requests into real consideration.

See their Tweet below:

They also asked on Facebook and Reddit.

It will be interesting to see if any of the user requests actually get ported. I am always sceptical of things like this, as it's essentially a hype machine for Feral and it doesn't necessarily mean anything will get ported as a result of requests there. Just keep that in mind when wildly requesting ports. Even so, it's a bit of fun and I am excited to see what Feral bring out over the rest of the year and beyond.

I've seen people constantly ask Feral about porting BioShock Remastered to Linux previous to this, but each request is met with the usual "we have nothing to share" type of reply. Considering it's a popular pick, I hope they look into that one. I would certainly appreciate BioShock Remastered on Linux!

So far it seems Doom, Bioshock and The Witcher 3 are popular choices.

What would you like to see?

Would have written this up four hours ago when I replied to their tweet, but updating some of the site code seemed to make time vanish!

GuestUpdates were released which resolved all of that... true we never got it on par with Windows mainly due to the issues with GL and streaming data, but it was good and very playable.

It works well on overpowered GPUs. I never got a good experience with my previous one. Even though it was above recommended specs. I'd say the biggest problems where VP dropped the ball was releasing this without a testing/beta period. Also the "whiny" style of communication did not really help. Like the "GL has issues" nonsense when the game was still running way better in Wine. Didn't really encourage sympathy. Both might have helped a lot against disgusting behaviour displayed by some. Luckily, VP stuck with it because the newer stuff hasn't given me many issues.

GL does have issues when trying to port a game designed around something else (DX10 or DX11), with a lot because OpenGL is (ok, was) essentially one big state machine that didn't play nice with multi-threading.

As for people saying TW2 ran faster with wine: I couldn't even get TW2 started on wine. I could get it started using eON. And then there were improvements. A lot of improvements. TW2 is quite happily playable for me now (actually I should go back to it soon), is natively supported, and works nicely with Mesa.
So perhaps it didn't have the best launch in the world, but it's fine now.

That's true. It was released in a sorry state, but VP did later put out several new builds. The current version ran just fine on my old GTX 760. Whether it would have been faster on Windows or not is irrelevant to me.

well, I didn't... but as soon as it's available, I'll buy it; no matter if it's on sale or not...

Just happened to consider that any of the Arkham series games would be nice.

Avehicle7887Despite this game's 2 years old now, I bet many Linux users would buy it if it was ported.

No. That's the problem - the Linux users who want to play Witcher 3 have already bought it, and would want the Linux port "for free".

Nop...still waiting.
