Steam now has a form of platform-specific wishlisting, to help developers see demand

g000hThere is one BIG problem with this though. Not all Linux gamers are going to want to set their Account Preferences to only show Linux/SteamOS games in Search Results.
Actually, that makes me think of another hiccup in the scheme: The only way to have your wishlist show non-Linux games to the developers as wanted for Linux is . . . to make it so you don't see non-Linux games when you're searching for things to put in your wishlist.
(Ooops. Looks like other people have already pointed this out)

The way the platform preference in your settings works is that it limits featured products on the store front and discovery queue to your platform choice. If you search for a title or browse a genre you see results for all platforms and there is an additional option to filter the specific search by platform.

Essentially, setting Linux as a platform limits what games Valve tries to directly market to you.

(adding Darksiders 3 to my wishlist)

Total War: ROME II - Emperor Edition is again showing signs of possible Linux support

All of the activity seems to be on the shared mac/linux content depots, without any updates to the executable depots. I would guess they are rolling out new content for the mac version.

The other game that comes to mind is Middle Earth: Shadow of War

I'm an idiot. If the logo stands for Macha (goddess of war) and "made to wade" comes from lyrics of Crass - Major General Despair (as Feral have used slightly obscure songs before) then a logical solution is Dawn of War III. This would also be levering an existing relationship with developers Relic Entertainment (Dawn of War 2, Company of Heroes 2) and publisher Sega (Total War series)

Maybe we're overthinking it. The picture suggests reads as cha = tea > iced tea, made to wade = swimsuits, therefore the game is Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball.

Or looking at the more literal symbology of the logo for the Macha tea company. Macha also relates to Celtic mythology, as the goddess of war, and there is an upcoming game from Ninja Theory called Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
QuoteHellblade: Senua's Sacrifice takes you on a journey into savage viking heartland with Senua, a Celtic warrior struggling with trauma & psychosis.

The phrase "Made to Wade" appears in the following song Crass - Major General Despair "The generals and politicians who advocate war should be made to wade in the truth of it" which could relate to NieR:Automata.

There is something else that suggests it could be NieR:Automata. Feral generally adds two depots domesticated_internal & domesticated_merge, NieR has two development branches 483qtryh438w & jkfes9uqt43ql that were created after the Steam Release

FredOSo we have reference to a song by MC Hammer = Warhammer.
Mars = The red planet = Warhammer 40k

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II confirmed.
You might be right considering Feral appears in the Dawn of War II SteamDB history

Lots Of Big Games Confirmed For SteamOS, Torchlight II Now Out, Payday 2, Mordor And More Coming Too

MacabreHeartDue to the news from Feral I went back to check on their radar. They've updated it with the Morder symbol but that whale is still there. I wonder what it could be if they haven't announced it today?

I think it's Evolve. If you edit the game path url you get a permission denied error if a game has had a folder structure created and a generic file not found if it hasn't. There is a game folder on the feral website called evolve

My favourite thriller is The 39 Steps. I've watched many different versions and it translates well on screen and stage. The version I like the most was the four actor stage one.

Guess The Next Linux Port From Feral Interactive, And Win A Copy

Although checking the Feral radar there is the steel fist image labelled "Scorched Earth" which could indicate something like Z Steel Soldiers, Warmachine Tactics or one of the Fallout games

Edit:
Scorched Earth -> Ember -> Torchlight (II)
