Well, traditionally Feral only published the LEGO games.
First Robosoft and Open Planet were doing the ports, then later TT Games themselves did the Mac development.
'LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2' though was ported and published by Feral.

I'm glad a series of video games receives that much dedication on the Mac.
I wish there would be more, but they did mention in their June Newsletter, that they

...have plans to continue quite a few major series on our favourite platforms this year and next...

Hmm..."continue quite a few major series..." Probably Life is Strange 2, Hitman 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Total War: Three Kingdoms.

Feral is actually very predictable if you think about it. I would still rather see some different things from them, particularly older titles that would run well on laptops.

Yep, throw in some LEGO titles, the newest from Codemasters and maybe 'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' and we got the next few upcoming games.

It probably makes more sense for them to port their old titles to iOS.

I can't blame them. The Mac gaming market isn't that huge that you can't get too experimental if you want to stay in business. So they are focusing on franchises that haven proven to find their audience, since these guarantee a solid return on investment.

New Mac & Linux project on the Feral Radar.

Working With Fire and Steel.

The line is probably about the title of this album and/or this song by China Crisis from '83.

The allusion to China first made me think of Total War: Three Kingdoms, but that game won't be released before the first quarter of 2019 even for Windows. So that's probably too early to tease the Mac version already.

Thrones of Britannia was released only a few weeks after the PC version, so I wouldn't be surprised if they are working on Three Kingdoms early.

It's so cruel how they make some of them blatantly obvious and then others completely indecipherable. Like they're teasing us.
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.

Wonder why we do not seem to be getting F1 2018 after last years PC launch day Mac release and a Linux version not much latter.  Hope it isnít a sign of less interest from Codemasters or issues with graphics features etc.

With all the plates they have spinning at the moment I could imagine that they don't have the resources for an immediate port of F1 2018.

If you're suffering from FOMO, just play F1 2016 or 2017 and write "2018" on your monitor wherever the previous date appears :P

Ha! Not so much FOMO as it is difficult to avoid the constant videos on YouTube and reviews saying how 2018 is a nice step forward for the game again.

Life Is Strange: Before the Storm will be out September 13.
System requirements are on the Feral Store page.
The game is supported on a variety of Macs all the way back to 2012,
with the curious exception of the 2015 MacBook Pro with AMD 370X graphics.

'Working With Fire and Steel' could be the new Definitive Edition of 'Middle-earth: Shadow of War'...
